Life in the modern world without a cell phone is just unthinkable. Mobiles are an absolute essential for day to day living, and never more so that when you’re travelling around, making new friends and wanting to stay in touch at home as well. There are really two options when you have a cell phone, either pay as you go or pay monthly. There are advantages to both, depending on your situation.
The simplest option is to join a pay as you go scheme. There's no contract to sign up to, and you simply pay for the calls and texts that you make, paying in advance and topping up your credit when you need to. A phone is not included in pay as you go deals, so you will need to use one you already have, or source one from elsewhere. It’s a great option if you’re going to be travelling through a lot of different countries as there is no minimum time restriction on how long you have the phone, and it’s also a great option if you don’t see yourself making a lot of calls.
Pay monthly has different advantages, and it may well be the better option if you’re going to be in one country for a longer period of time, as the calls can work out to be cheaper. There are a variety of packages to choose from. A phone is usually included in the pay monthly packages, although you may have to pay a one off fee towards the cost of the phone if you choose a more expensive model. You will be tied in for a minimum contract period however, usually either 18 or 24 months.
