Cheapest ways to stay in touch while you are traveling abroad
« on: December 07, 2012, 11:03:00 AM »
Suppose you are on a getaway at some foreign countries.  What would you do to keep in touch with your friends and family back at home? What if you are an occasional international traveler? You may also need to make local calls abroad. So, how would you do these all while traveling abroad?

Nowadays, you have lots of options available which depends on various factors. Making calls abroad and staying in touch with your family and pals isn't expensive as you think (but how?).  Well, here's how.

The easiest way to do so is by using mobile phone. You phone will work overseas as long as your cellphone uses the Global System for Mobile Communications. Many telecommunication companies have this service? Make sure you got one. With your regular mobile phone, you can be always connected to your closed ones.  Using mobile phone a lot for communicating might be expensive choice. Make sure you disable the automatic notifications from your phone apps and automatic email push. So what's next? Well there are other alternatives as well.

You can make calls at low costs by using apps like Skype and VOIP. These offer cheap rates while making calls back home. Furthermore, you can buy local or regional SIM cards or else you can rent a phone. For using internet, you can use hotspot. These days, majority of the hotels offer free WIFI service. You can take advantage from this. In case, you don't use wifi or don't have access to it, you can buy outgoing calling cards at cheap rates.

No big deal, these are what you need to do to reduce your phone bills abroad and be in touch in your family and pals back home. Have a nice trip!! Thank you!!
