Select one of our cell phone rentals for your next trip to New Zealand and get unlimited data.  And, with an app, you get unlimited calls and texts to the USA.Simply select one of our phone rental options (iPhone, 5, 8 etc. or Android) and then enter the actual departure and return dates.  Time permitting, you will receive the rental phone 2-3 business days before your trip. Also, please note that in order to download most apps, you must rent an iPhone 6 or above.

All of our phone rentals come ready to go and ready to use as soon as you land in New Zealand. Just turn on the phone and you can check your messages, check emails, browse the web and more. Again, the iPhone 5 rental is good primarily for calling and browsing but not for downloading apps as most apps require a more recent operating system.
