International cell phone rental has been the ‘norm’ for a while, but changes are afoot.
You may think that renting an international cell phone is still the best way to go, especially if you’re only going to be using it for a few weeks each year. However, it can be a complicated process.
Every time you rent you’ll receive:
An international cell phone with one cell phone number
Other accessories (maybe)
But then it’s time to return your international cell phone rental. You must take the time, and energy, to send the phone back to the supplier, sometimes at your own personal cost.
International cell phone rental may have its advantages. For example, if you only plan to ever travel once, you can use it for that specific trip or vacation. There also may be cost benefits, however the difference between buying an international cell phone and renting one isn’t that great.
In summary, even though international cell phone rental may sound appealing, and more affordable, the smartest thing to do is to buy.
There are a number of advantages to buying an international cell phone, which is why it’s now becoming more popular each year, and it’s one of the reasons why Mobal don’t offer international cell phone rental.
You buy only once, unless you decide to upgrade your international cell phone. The benefits are:
An international cell phone, with one number for life
No return charges (compared to rental)
Billed just like a domestic cell phone
Only pay for the calls and texts you make
No commitment and no contract
I think you get the idea.
