FAQ: Service & Contract

  • Who is Expat Mobile?

    Expat Mobile is a brand of Central Services. In response to the high prices charged by Dutch providers for international calls and data, the UK company TrendCall Services Ltd. started selling Dutch mobile subscriptions for travellers and expats in 2005. In 2006 TrendCall Services became a fully independant Dutch Limited Liability company, owned and managed by Dutch ex-expats. Over the years several brands such as CargoFone, SOSmobiel and SeniorFoon were added, so we changed the name to Central Services. Expat Mobile is the latest and most succesful brand, Expat Mobile provides cheap national and international call rates, so you can always keep in touch with family and friends at the lowest possible cost. We offer our customers the highest call quality at the lowest rates. We are known for our direct customer contact. Our customers are often travelling and/or busy with their work. You certainly do not need to be treated like a number. That is why our helpdesk offers one-on-one contact: we pride ourselves in not having a voice response system (VRS).

  • I'm happy with Expat Mobile, can I tell this to someone?

    Yes, please do! We distinguish ourselves from the rest by spending little on marketing and much on our customers. Through our Tell A Friend program you can invite your friends, family and colleagues to take an Expat Mobile subscription. Once your friend(s) joins us, you both receive an credit.

  • For whom is Expat Mobile?

    Our mobile phone subscriptions are specifically aimed for the international sector. We have specifically tailored our call plans to the needs of Expats and offer savings where most providers would charge extra.
