We've noticed an increasing demand for Cell phone rental in Jamaica. And yes, the majority of these requests are from folks like you who are on vacation or planning to come here on vacation.
And there are good reasons for this:
That is the bottom line.
A part of the problem was that in most cases, if you want to communicate back home, you would have to use the resort phone.
But the hotels typically charge an exorbitant amount - never mind the challenge for your relatives to get back to you.
We do have call card/credit here in Jamaica but call boxes are almost extinct now - everyone here uses a cellphone.
One trend we noticed is that some travellers bring their smart phone, but they usually get a 'bill shock' when they return. Many didn't know that outside of the high roaming charges, these smart phones request data downloads (automatically) on a very regular basis - so that increases the data costs.
Moreover, once your phone was turned on outside of the USA (for example), you are automatically registered as 'international' and all calls are billed at the international rate - whether your phone is turned on or off! And that includes voicemail.
The telephone carriers call this 'international divert'. You only truly escape this if your phone is on 'flight mode'.
Simply trying to stay in touch really should not be that complicated, stressful and expensive.
That was this vision that inspired Mr. Aubyn Clarke to 'fix' this problem when he launched his company called Island Phone Rentals.
It was the honorable gentleman that opened my eyes to much of this.
Been in the tourism industry for almost two decades - working with local hotels and direct stints at Air Jamaica (now Caribbean Airlines) and Delta Airlines he saw this issue first hand.
I met up with him at Fairview in Montego Bay a few weeks ago and was very impressed with his vision, direction and purpose.
He clearly has the needs of his clients at the forefront and so I gladly accepted the invitation to share his offering with you (I only recommend to my fans products that I would personally use).
His company provides cell phone rentals to visitors in Jamaica, allowing them to save up to 95% on the regular communication costs - plus providing the convenience and peace of mind of having a phone whenever and wherever you need it.
Below are some of the benefits to you that he outlined to me...
