Rent a cell phone for your trip to France and get unlimited high speed data and unlimited calls and texts in France. Our rentals are charged and to use as soon as you land in France. Simply select the type of phone you want to rent, enter the departure and return dates and your rental fee will be calculated. You will receive the cell phone 2-3 days prior to your departure, time permitting. Your package includes the ph0ne with the SIM, plus all chargers and adapters, instructions and a return package.

Please note that in order to call or text the USA or Canada, you must use an app. We highly recommend Talkatone as it is easy to use, free to download and, unlike many other apps, you can call to landlines. WhatsApp of course is a great app but the limitation is that both users need to have it on their phone. Also, please note that in order to download most apps, you must rent an iPhone 6 or above.

While you can make calls in France and text in France without an app, many users tend to use their phones for activities involving data more than for calling. With any of our phone rentals, you can book hotels, check into your flight, use maps, check emails and more with a cell phone. Again, the iPhone 5 and the Android rentals are good primarily for calling and browsing but not for downloading apps as most apps require a more recent operating system.
