Cell Phone: Info on International Rentals

There are several types of international cell phone rentals available. The type of rental that is best for you depends on many different factors including your destination, the length of your travel, how much you are willing to spend, the amount of time that you think you will be spending on the phone, and so forth. These factors, taken independently or together, will lead you toward the type of cellular phone rental that you need. For example, if you are travelling in a remote area or in a country located somewhere like the Middle East, your ideal phone rental would be a satellite phone. However, if you are staying in the same country, or just in Europe, for an extended period of time, a rental that works much like a shorter version of a contracted plan would be better.

Info on International Cell Phone Rentals

The short term contract version is one of the more popular types of international cell phone rentals. When using this type of rental, you as the consumer will pay an overall flat rental fee for the phone in addition to a daily or weekly fee, depending on the length of your stay. The first fee covers the use of your phone number and the other fee covers the use of the actual phone. In addition, you will also have to contract for a certain amount of airtime. This price varies depending on how many minutes you think that you will use during your trip. The more you want to talk, the more money you will pay. In addition, you will also be charged for any airtime that you use above your allowed amount. If not monitered carefully, this can get fairly expensive.

Another rental plan that is fairly popular is the prepaid plan. This plan can be used in one of two ways. You can rent the phone and then purchase minutes to use. If you implement the plan in this fashion you biggest difference between the contracted plans and this plan is that you will never be charged for using more minutes than you purchased. Your phone simply will not make or recieve phone calls after your minutes have been used. Another option with this plan is that, if you have a phone that will work on the global network, you can simply rent a phone number to use with your phone.
