Introduction

Mexico Rental Phones

Rent a cell phone for your trip to Mexico and enjoy the convenience and security of a cell phone at an affordable price. Our rates are a low $0.25 per minute for all calls, including back to the United States. The SIM rental also works in the US at $0.10 per minute and in Canada at $0.39 per minute. Check your balance at any time and conveniently add more call credit toll free from the handset by using a credit card. 7 days/week toll free customer service from the handset is included. Coverage is extensive and is on the Telcel network in Mexico and AT&T in the US.

Your rental features a US phone number. You can also forward your current phone number to the new phone number. Many travelers prefer NOT to forward their number sand maybe just give the new number to a select few so that they can enjoy their vacation!

We offer 3 handset options, a Standard Rental, a Smartphone Android Rental and an iPhone rental. While non of the phones support data, the Smartphone and the iPhone are both wifi enabled.
