TravelCell has announced international cell phone rental specials and services just in time for Thanksgiving and winter vacation travel, according to a press release.
TravelCell is a provider of global cellular and satellite phones for business and leisure travelers. The company is popular for its competitive rates and exceptional service. It will now offer phone rental for $29.99 per week. Additionally, customers will receive a free phone rental with all accessories. The deal will be effective until June 2008.
"Thanksgiving and the holiday season is finally here and people want to stay in touch with their families and loved ones while away on vacations," Josh Mehlman, president of TravelCell, said in the release. “With the holiday season upon us, TravelCell is dedicated to making it easier for families and business travelers to stay together. People are off to ski trips and sightseeing all over the world, and TravelCell wants to help them stay connected. Parents and seniors are traveling all over the world to different countries and destinations. We like to think that TravelCell keeps families together.”
In recent years, there has been a phenomenal rise in international travel while technology per se is witnessing a period of dramatic evolution. Consequently, telecom costs, satellite phone rentals, and cellular phones have also gone up. Simultaneously, the quality of cell phones and cellular devices is also getting better. The result is an increase in phone rentals through providers like TravelCell, rather than buy calling cards that don’t promise reliability.
Now, travelers can gain access to an alternative to high cost cellular phone bills. TravelCell will provide the lowest rates and best service with free incoming calls in many travel destinations, including England, Italy, France, Germany, Spain and many more. This will be achieved through partnerships with foreign cell phone carriers, which ensures that free incoming calls, and lower outgoing call charges will be offered without any tradeoffs on the quality of service
"TravelCell has been in business for over ten years and was one of the pioneers in the international cell phone rental industry. We remain at the top because of our low rates, customer service, and advanced technology," Mehlman said.
The phones from TravelCell will be shipped in advance so that customers can distribute the cellular phone number before they set out on their journey. This is one of the key advantages.
Travelcell phone packages will include chargers for each destination, a return pack, and preprinted business cards with the phone number and instructions on how to reach the traveler when abroad.
