If your travel plans include visiting one or more European destinations and your current carrier, whether it be with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or others, is either too expensive or doesn't have the solution you need, we can help you out. Since 2002 Cellular Abroad has helped over 300,000 save money on cellular service while traveling to Europe as well as other international destinations. All of our solutions are paid up front so you always know exactly what you are paying.
If you own an unlocked phone (all Verizon smartphones are unlocked, otherwise check with your carrier), we recommend our Data SIM for Europe which also gives you the ability to call. Packed with lots of data and minutes, most travelers purchase our Data SIM. However, if you don't own a smartphone and/or just need it sporadically, we recommend our Global Travel SIM.
Many travelers do NOT have an unlocked phone or they need service on multiple devices - even simultaneously - such as tablets or laptops. The Mobile Wi Fi Hotspot is ideal for travelers who need reliable Wi Fi any where and any time throughout Europe. A mobile hotspot is a portable device that creates a Wi Fi signal that goes wherever you go and works whenever you need Wi Fi. Mobile hotspots offer lots of high speed data and are extremely easy to use as well as secure and reliable, which is why this is now our top seller. Verizon, AT&T and other carriers international roaming plans simply cannot compete! Check out our Mobile Hotspot Rental as well as our Hotspot Purchase and compare.
Another alternative is to rent a phone. We offer a couple of solutions for Europe. Compare between our Unlimited Plan and our Standard Phone Rental. Or, if you are a frequent traveler, we also offer Cell Phone Purchases for the frequent traveler.
Whether you purchase a stand alone SIM card, rent a cell phone or purchase one of our European cell phone packages, the rates are always the same. Rates to call back home are 24 cents per minute anywhere in the European Community. Incoming calls are free on the European cell phone number and 24 cents per minute on the US number. Since the service has two phone numbers, US and a European number, you can decide which one to use. Typically, callers from the US/Canada will call on the US number and callers from Europe will call you on the European number. Having said that, you give people from the US and Canada your European number in order to receive free incoming calls. Keep in mind that they will be charged whatever their carrier rates are in order to call you.
You bet. We have mobile data and plenty of it for Europe. The data SIM card is a great choice for travelers to Europe who need data. This requires that you have an unlocked device. Alternatively, you can rent a mobile hotspot and use it with any device - even if it is locked or does not have a slot for a SIM card. Simply turn on the mobile hotspot, log on and you are ready to use your Wi Fi enabled device virtually anywhere in Europe.
You can keep your US or Canadian number with either the SIM card or the data SIM card. Please visit the appropriate page to learn more.
Simply put, no. All of our solutions for Europe are pay as you go and do not require you to sign a contract.
You can use your iPad either by putting in our data SIM card or buy renting a Wi Fi hotspot. Many tablets do not have a SIM card slot and therefore, you will need to rent a mobile hotspot.
If you plan to use your laptop, you will need to rent our Wi Fi Mobile Hotspot. The hotspot is a portable device that allows you to connect with any Wi Fi enabled device, including your laptop, smartphones and tablets.
If your phone is unlocked or if your tablet is unlocked, yes, you can just get a SIM card.
