Rent an Italy cell phone and get everything you need to stay in touch and browse the web for your trip to Italy. For over 20 years Cellular Abroad has been renting cell phones for travelers going to Italy and in fact, Italy is our top European destination. Renting a phone is easy. Simply select one of our cell phone options, enter the departure and return dates to calculate your costs and, if agreeable, check out your rental in the cart.
All of our rentals includes unlimited calls within Italy, 320 minutes of calls to the US and Canada and 80GB of high speed 4G/LTE data which is virtually an unlimited amount of data. The rental comes with an Italian number. If you want to keep your current US number or get a new one, we recommend downloading Talkatone, a free app that allows unlimited calls and texts to the US and Canada. The service works on Vodafone, the largest carrier in Italy. The coverage is everywhere in Italy and, if you have a side trip outside of Italy anywhere in the EU you can use up to 5GB of data.
Our rentals are the perfect solution for using GPS, checking your emails, buying train or museum tickets online, coordinating with travel agents and your host in Italy and calling back to the US or Canada.
Also, please note that in order to download most apps, you must rent an iPhone 6 or newer. The iPhone 5 rental is recommended primarily for calling and browsing but not for downloading apps as most apps require a more recent operating system. In addition, the iPhone 5 has a small screen which may not be suitable for using GPS.
All rentals include a ready to go and charged cell phone with an Italian phone number, a charger and Italian plug adapter, a protective case, simple instructions and a return package – all packed in a convenient travel pouch. You will receive the rental 2-4 business days prior to your departure, time permitting. When back from your trip, drop off the rental in the included US Postal Service package and that’s it!
