Benefits of the Tractive subscription

Tractive often gets the question, why do you have to pay a monthly fee? Or why can’t you just insert your own sim-card? This blog entry will answer all of your questions and show you the advantages when you choose the Tractive GPS Pet Tracker with subscription.

Easy to use

There’s no need to visit your local provider store, no need to worry about which tariff fits you and your pet, if there’s enough credit on the prepaid card or even the costs for an expensive 2 years contract.

simple, choose one plan and you’re good to go

You just visit our website, click on “activate your tracker” and within 5 minutes you are able to start tracking your beloved pet, guaranteed! The Tractive service plan is a flat-rate so it doesn’t matter how often and how long you are using the device. Pretty cool, right?

Works in over 80 countries worldwide

Yes, the orange spots are our supported countries, so almost the entire world. As an advantage of the pre-installed SIM you are able to access our service from all these countries with our premium plan.

  • Do you live near a border and often have access to the cellular network from abroad?
  • Do you want to track your dog on vacation?

Well that’s no problem for the Tractive GPS, cause it really doesn’t matter where it connects.

Uses multiple carriers in each country

The device also uses several providers in each country, meaning you really cannot lose your pet. This is not possible with a normal SIM card.

For example, here’s a view of Germany and its 2G coverage for all our 4 providers. There’s really no spot without a GSM network. Looks like it’s almost impossible to lose a pet then 😉

    1. Hi Flo,

      It is necessary to have one service plan for each device because every GPS Pet Tracking device communicates using cellular networks. We pay the cellular data fees for you and just charge you a small service fee. For this you can enjoy unlimited GPS tracking of your pet. But it is not a typical mobile phone contract, as we don’t charge any activation fee or any other additional fees. We don’t bind you into a contract, you can decide to stop or restart the service at any point in time 🙂

      If you have any further questions, please contact our support team

  1. Hi! I saw where you said “We pay the cellular data fees for you and just charge you a small service fee. For this you can enjoy unlimited GPS tracking of your pet.”
    Does that mean if i track my pet w the app, it will not use any data off my phone?

    1. Hi Bonnie,

      no it’s technically not possible to pay for your own data plan, the sentence just means that we pay all the costs which the GPS tracker itself is generating. (data & SMS)

      Best regards,
