Useful Phone/ Sim Resources
Traveling abroad has become so accessible now, with many options available from low cost airlines, to rail passes and other cheaper forms of transport - the only thing that has not evolved is international roaming and phone services when abroad. Taking your existing mobile phone with you when you travel will result in a pretty large phone bill if you are consuming data, texts and making calls.
To avoid this, we recommend either purchasing an international mobile phone that allows you to make low cost calls, text and depending on the phone will have data included - or if you want to take your existing phone with you you can simple purchase a sim card to replace your current one when abroad.
To learn more about the different options, please choose either our fonepack or simpack pages for more information:
