Rent a cell phone or SIM card for FREE and stay connected during your trip
If you want to make phone calls or have email and internet 24/7 during your trip, we strongly recommend you do NOT use a roaming plan with your American phone company as the rates will be very expensive for both incoming and outgoing calls and all data usage.Instead, we have teamed up with a great Israeli cell phone provider TalknSaveto bring you the best rental deal and calling rates possible so you can still feel connected! You can rent a cell phone from them, or if your phone will work on their network (go to www.talknsave.net/checkmyphone) you can just rent a SIM card to put in your iPhone or Android.
Why use the TalknSave plan?
All calls within your group, including staff, are FREE!
The cell phone/SIM is delivered to you upon arrival in Israel for FREE!
The rental is FREE, you just need to put down a small deposit, which will be refunded when you return the cell phone/SIM card!
All incoming calls are FREE!
No paperwork required, just put in your credit card number and go!
You can extend the cell phone/SIM card rental if you decide to extend your trip!
It’s always good to know that if you need to call someone, you have the option!
Extending your trip? You can extend your cell phone/SIM card rental beyond the scheduled group return date by simply indicating your departure date from Israel on the order form. If you are unsure as to whether you will be staying longer than the group, then simply put in the group's departure date on the order form and call us during your trip to let us know when you plan to extend until. We will then update your contract end date in our database and your calling rates will remain the same until you depart Israel.
If you do extend your stay in Israel, you will be able to return your cell phone/SIM card using the padded return envelope at the Ben Gurion airport post office located just before security after baggage check-in. (The fee for using the return envelope is $5).
