If your travel plans include traveling to one or more European destination and your current carrier, whether it be with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or others, either is too expensive to use or doesn't have the right solution, we can help you out. Since 2002 Cellular Abroad has helped over 300,000 save money on cellular service while traveling abroad. We offer a variety of options for the traveler and since all of our solutions are prepaid, you will know up front exactly what you are paying.
If you already own unlocked cell phone, you can purchase the National Geographic Travel SIM in order to receive low data, text and calling rates all over Europe. The National Geographic Travel SIM offers one flat low rate in the EU for calling, texting and mobile data. As an added benefit, this international SIM card works in almost every other country worldwide. In addition, using this service as opposed to roaming with your current cellular provider gives you the option of either keeping your current number (not necessarily a plus for travelers wanting to get away from it all) or getting a new number. Along with a US number, this SIM card also features a European phone number. Having a European number makes it affordable for your European friends and family to reach you. Alternatively, you can purchase a data SIM card for Europe. The data SIM card features an almost unlimited amount of mobile data. In addition, you can call and text with the data SIM.
We also rent phones for Europe. For those who do not have unlocked phones or simply do not want to fiddle with inserting a SIM card into your phone, we offer several rental options. We also offer the National Geographic Travel Phone, an affordable, easy to use phone that works all over Europe and almost anywhere else worldwide. We also rent iPhones with virtually unlimited data and calling.
Is your trip longer than a couple of weeks or you are a frequent traveler? Consider purchasing a cell phone for travel abroad.
Last, but certainly not least, we offer a mobile Wi Fi hotspot that works seamlessly throughout Europe. A mobile hotspot is a portable device that creates a Wi Fi signal that goes wherever you go and works whenever you need Wi Fi. In addition, you can connect with multiple devices such as tablets, smartphones and computers. Our European mobile hotspot rental is easily one of our more popular products.
Whether you purchase a stand alone SIM card, rent a cell phone or purchase one of our European cell phone packages, the rates are always the same. Rates to call back home are 24 cents per minute anywhere in the European Community. Incoming calls are free on the European cell phone number and 24 cents per minute on the US number. Since the service has two phone numbers, US and a European number, you can decide which one to use. Typically, callers from the US/Canada will call on the US number and callers from Europe will call you on the European number. Having said that, you give people from the US and Canada your European number in order to receive free incoming calls. Keep in mind that they will be charged whatever their carrier rates are in order to call you.
You bet. We have mobile data and plenty of it for Europe. The data SIM card is a great choice for travelers to Europe who need data. This requires that you have an unlocked device. Alternatively, you can rent a mobile hotspot and use it with any device - even if it is locked or does not have a slot for a SIM card. Simply turn on the mobile hotspot, log on and you are ready to use your Wi Fi enabled device virtually anywhere in Europe.
You can keep your US or Canadian number with either the SIM card or the data SIM card. Please visit the appropriate page to learn more.
Simply put, no. All of our solutions for Europe are pay as you go and do not require you to sign a contract.
You can use your iPad either by putting in our data SIM card or buy renting a Wi Fi hotspot. Many tablets do not have a SIM card slot and therefore, you will need to rent a mobile hotspot.
If you plan to use your laptop, you will need to rent our Wi Fi Mobile Hotspot. The hotspot is a portable device that allows you to connect with any Wi Fi enabled device, including your laptop, smartphones and tablets.
If your phone is unlocked or if your tablet is unlocked, yes, you can just get a SIM card.
