Data Roaming Charges

So I'm just back from another trip to Slovakia (I will never get sick of the place) where I spent the long weekend. I have a pay as you go plan for my mobile phone and it struck me at how quickly I ran out of credit without realising it. Small things like a status update on Facebook, reading news articles or a few retweets on Twitter and my €20 credit had all but disappeared.

Now that's not too bad for me, when my credit is gone I just can't use the phone any more. But what about the poor souls on bill-pay plans? Imagine the shock you could get after a 2 week holiday if you're not extremely careful, you could get a very nasty surprise with your next phone bill.

Thankfully, the EU is introducing laws, taking effect from later this year, which will essentially eliminate data roaming charges within the EU. But for people travelling to and from the United States, Canada, Asia etc, it can get very expensive to use your phone. Still, there is hope, some companies such as TravelCell have seen a chance to offer cheaper international connectivity when abroad, and it is well worth your time to have a look at them.

Many travelers return to the USA and get sticker shock from bills over $1000 for international roaming and data fees. Smartphones automatically update and use tremendous amounts of usage at high cost per megabyte. Instead of using your own phone while traveling abroad, which could incur extremely high bills, use a TravelCell! Travel worry-free, knowing that you got the best deal on your international cell phone. To get a list of all products and plans please visit www.travelcell.com
