Staying in touch

This is a common question from travelers, can I use my cell phone when I’m traveling? The answer is check with your cell phone provider about your coverage and your phone’s capabilities.

Here are some helpful tips:

  • Be sure to check with your provider about fees before you travel. The fees can really add up if you’re not careful.
  • Not planning on using your phone outside the US? Be sure to turn it off, many providers can charge you a roaming charge just for having your phone on.
  • Want to stay in touch? Consider buying a pre-paid cell phone or a phone card when you arrive at your destination.
  • Use fax or email. Many hotels offer a computer for travelers to use as well as a fax machine (small fees may apply).
