Cellular Abroad Rental Service for Bahamas

Most US and Canadian cell phones do not work in the Bahamas and the ones that do are extremely expensive to use. Cellular Abroad's solution is affordable enough that virtually anyone going to the Bahamas can afford the convenience of having a cell phone. Cellular Abroad offers cellular phone rentals for the Bahamas and over 120 other countries. Our rental phones for the Bahamas are prepaid and include a local Bahamas SIM card, which means you pay the same rates and get the same quality of coverage enjoyed by thousands of Bahamians every day. Our service is also convenient to adhere to - the service is prepaid so there are no contracts to sign or bills to pay later.

You can easily purchase additional talk time for your GSM cell phone rental from convenience stores while in the Bahamas or from us before or during your trip; we provide detailed information to ensure you can get the most out of your Bahamas rental phone.

As part of your rental package, you are purchasing a prepaid Bahamas SIM card. A SIM card—also known as a chip—slips easily into a GSM phone. The SIM card is the "brain" of the phone and is what allows you to make calls within the Bahamas or to anywhere in the world. The card is linked to a prepaid account so that you will never receive a phone bill and will always be in complete control of your expenditures. If needed, you can simply add more talk time to your account by purchasing a scratch-off recharge card and entering the unique code off the card into the handset.

Important FAQs for Rentals

  • When do I order?
    You can order as far in advance as you like - even months prior to your departure. We will ship your rental at the appropriate date in order for you to receive it prior to your departure. Rentals are shipped ground or express service and will arrive 2 business days prior to your set departure date.
  • What will this cost me?
    • The applicable rental period fee for the duration of your rental period.
    • The price of the SIM Card (1 per phone).
    • Round-trip shipping and handling fee (see below).
  • How much is shipping?
    If you order at least 2 weeks in advance, round-trip Ground shipping is only $12.88. If you are leaving soon, we offer round-trip 2-day Express for $29.96, or Overnight Express for $39.96. Rentals will arrive 2 business days prior to your set departure date.
  • What is the latest I can order a rental phone?
    You can order up to one business day prior to your departure as long as you call in before to 1:30pm Pacific Time. Exceptions can be made on a limited basis, even if you are leaving early in the morning - we can usually get your phone to you. Please call our 800 number (rather than order via the web) in order to confirm that we can get you a phone rental on time.
  • When do I get the phone?
    You will receive your cell phone rental two days prior to your departure, unless you require next day delivery.
  • Does the cell phone come charged?
    Yes it does, but itís always best to test the battery and charge phone before your departure.
  • Can I charge this phone on my trip?
    Yes, you will receive an international charger and relevant plug adapters, so you can charge the phone in the U.S. or at your destination.
  • How do I return the phone?
    Round trip shipping is included in your shipping fee. You will be provided with a return sticker label, which you can put on the box the phone arrived in, or your own box. If using your own box please do not use an extremely oversized box. (Canadian rental customers click here)
  • What happens if I cancel?
    If your rental has not shipped, you will only be charged a 5% reserve fee. If your rental has been sent out, you are responsible for the one week rental fee plus the shipping fee.
  • Are there any surcharges or hidden fees?
    Unless you are roaming outside of the country or countries for which your service is offered, the rates are fixed according to our posted rate chart and coverage areas. All rental customers are subject to our Terms & Conditions.
  • What will the rates be for people calling me from the US?
    That depends on the international long distance rates charged by their Long Distance Company or international calling card.
  • Does Cellular Abroad offer insurance against loss or damage?
    Yes, rental insurance is available for $19.50 as an add-on once you add your item to the cart. See what is covered here.
  • Multi-Country Travel
    You can also purchase other SIM cards as well for other countries to where you may be traveling. (This option is good for those planning on doing a lot of local calling.) We also offer an international roaming National Geographic Talk Abroad™ rental that is convenient for travel to multiple countries. (This option is useful for those wanting a single number for use in multiple countries and who will be making more calls back home than locally.)
