Important FAQs for Rentals
When do I order?
You can order as far in advance as you like - even months prior to your travel departure. We will not ship your rental until the appropriate date in order for you to receive it in time for your departure. Rentals are typically shipped FedEx 2-Day service, unless faster service is required.
What is the latest I can order a rental phone?
Although it's not recommended to place your order at the last minute, you can order up to one business day prior to your departure as long as you call in prior to 4pm Pacific Time. 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 your cell phone rental on time. Please take into account that bad weather can sometimes delay FedEx shipments. Cellular Abroad cannot refund the price of priority shipping for orders placed the day before departure if the package arrives late due to the weather.
When do I get the phone?
You will receive your cell phone rental a day or two prior to your departure.
Does the cell phone come charged?
Yes it does.
What happens if I cancel?
The CANCELLATION FEE for rentals is $25.00 per phone. You may cancel the order before your order is shipped. Shipping costs are due at the time of reserve.
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.
Does Cellular Abroad offer insurance against loss or damage?
Rental insurance is available for $19.50 and covers any loss, theft or damage. It will be available as an add-on once your dates are entered and you add the rental phone to the cart.
