International cell phone rentals are the way to go for US residents traveling abroad. International cell phones are very expensive for US residents and don’t make sense for most of us. If you travel internationally only a few times a year and then only for pleasure, international cell phone rental is the answer.
My sister rented a PlanetFone when were traveling in Rome. I have to admit that I was more than a little skeptical but it turned out to be a lifesaver when her wallet was stolen in Termini Train station. She was able to call her husband from the
train and he cancelled all their credit cards before the train left the station.
PlanetFone makes international cell phone rental easy and convenient. In our case,
my sister was in New York City for a wedding and the phone was delivered to the address where she was staying. When she returned home she put the international cell phone in the mail and the deal was complete.
