Telefonica launches Spanish embassy information service

Tuesday 27 October 2015 | 11:40 CET | News
Telefonica has joined forces with Spain's ministry of foreign affairs to launch a service that will inform all mobile customers of the closest Spanish embassy and consulate when they travel abroad. Under the 'Espana.Contigo' initiative, mobile customers will be sent a free SMS with the location of the closest Spanish embassies and consulates, together with the corresponding telephone number to contact in the event of emergency. The information will be automatically sent when the customer's roaming service is activated on entry into a new country.
