Cell Phone Rental for Europe

Cell phone reception and coverage in Europe is generally excellent and typically far superior in virtually any country in Europe as opposed to the US. Europe is a highly densely-populated region and cell phone use and proliferation far exceeds that of the United States. In fact, there are several countries in Europe where over 90% of the population have cell phones—and that includes the entire population, infants included. Many Europeans rely exclusively on cellular phones and do not even have landlines at home. This is possible since the cellular system that they use, called GSM, is reliable and the coverage is widespread. Cellular Abroad taps into several different cell phone carriers in Europe and therefore, the same reliable and inexepensive cellphone service that is available to the Europeans is also available to American travelers heading to that region. Cellular Abroad offers both cell phone rentals for Europe as well as cell phone sales for Europe which are particularly convenient for the traveler who will travel to Europe at least once a year.

For those interested in renting a cell phone for Europe, the process is simple. Call Cellular Abroad and give us your shipping details as well as your departure dates. Since it is a prepaid service, there is no need to sign a contract. You pay only for the outgoing calls as the incoming calls are always 100% free in Europe on your rental phone. Outgoing calls are purchased in blocks of 30 minutes. You can purchase 30 minutes or 10 hours prior to your trip or anytime during your trip by simply calling Cellular Abroad from overseas. For more information regarding cell phone rentals for Europe, please go to the Talk Abroad rental page.

If you are a frequent traveler to Europe, you should consider the purchase of one our GSM phones as this will inevitably save you money by your second rental. The call rates are exactly the same whether you rent or buy a cell phone. The main difference is that if you purchase the phone, you do not need to return it and next time you travel to Europe, you will have the same cell phone number as before. We also provide free ground shipping on all phone and SIM card package sales.

Cellular Abroad is more than happy to give you more more information about European cell phone rentals and purchases by either calling our 800 number or by sending us an email to
