Select one of our cell phone rentals for your next trip to Portugal. We offer several rentals for Portugal, an Android and a few iPhones. All rentals included unlimited high speed data in Portugal and unlimited calls and texts.  Please note that while we do offer the iPhone 5, this is primarily for browsing the web and calling and texting as many apps are not supported on this phone. In addition, if you are planning on using Google Maps, a larger screen, such as the iPhone 6, 8 or X is much easier to see.

Please note that in order to call or text the USA or Canada, you must use an app. We recommend Talkatone as it is easy to use, free and 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, as noted above, to download most apps, you must rent an iPhone 8 or above.

All rentals for Portugal are ready to go as soon as you land and include everything you need including the plug adapters, chargers, instructions and a prepaid return package with USPS (for customers based in the US). You will receive the rental a couple of business days prior to your trip, time permitting. Once finished, simply delete any Apple ID you may have used on the phone, put it the prepaid package and drop it off at USPS.
