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.
  • How many minutes do I have?
    Along with your rental you are purchasing an initial $14 credit voucher which will start you off with about 3 minutes of calls to the US or 55 minutes of calls within the Caribbean. Additional vouchers may be purchased from Cellular Abroad or from many retailers throughout the Caribbean.
  • What will this cost me?
    • The applicable rental period fee for the duration of your rental period.
    • $14 for initial talk-time voucher (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.)
