Rent a cell phone for Switzerland and have immediate access to unlimited calls, texts and high speed data for your trip. Your cell phone is delivered to you prior to your trip. Once back from Switzerland, simply drop it off at USPS (USA only) within 2 business days of your return using our prepaid shipping envelope. Your cell phone will work anywhere in Europe and not just Switzerland.
To check the cost, select your cell phone rental option, put in the actual departure and return dates and the cost will be calculated. This is the perfect solution not only for making calls and texting but to use Google Maps, book tickets or a taxi online, use social media, check your emails and anything else you want to do with the unlimited (up to 20GB) data provided with your rental.
Your phone rental includes everything you need for your trip including the phone and activated SIM card, international plug adapters and chargers, instructions plus a return package for easy return when you are back from your trip (USA only). Simply select your phone option, enter the trip dates and your rental cost will be calculated. Time permitting, you will receive the phone at least 2-3 days prior to your departure so you can upload apps if desired.
While all of our rentals allow unlimited calling and texting within Switzerland, in order to call to the USA or Canada you will need an app. WhatsApp is great if the other party also has the app on their phone but to call to those who don’t or to a landline, we recommend Talkatone which is a free app that allows unlimited calls and texts to the USA and Canada. Please note that you need an iPhone 8 or newer in order to download many apps, including Talkatone. We also recommend the iPhone 8 or newer for the larger screen, particularly if you plan on using a GPS app. Please note that our rentals do work in the US but only for data.
