5 Reasons to Rent a Satellite Phone

When you choose an activity that takes you off the grid, you’ll most likely experience peace and quiet for the first time in a while. There is no background noise, no traffic, no alarms or sirens. Enjoying the outdoors is a great way to unwind and disconnect from the world for a bit. 

However, while you’re enjoying the great outdoors, you’ll want to ensure that you do have a way to call for help if necessary. You don’t necessarily want family, friends, or work contacting you, but in the event that you have an emergency, it’s important to be able to contact someone who can help

In today’s blog post, we are going to discuss some of the top reasons that you should rent a satellite phone. Reasons include everything from your safety to saving a bit of money. Continue reading to learn more about why you should consider renting a satellite phone for your next trip or adventure.

Your Safety

One of the biggest reasons to rent a satellite phone is for your safety. If you are adventuring off the grid and outside of normal cell service, you should make sure you have an emergency plan in place. Many satellite phones come equipped with an S.O.S. button that will automatically contact a specific person for you. Some also have GPS systems that will send updates of your whereabouts to someone back home so they always know where you are if you need help. 

Stay Connected on Your Terms

Satellite phones are ideal for areas outside of cell phone coverage. You’ll still have access to make phone calls, send text messages, and even check emails if you want with most satellite phones, but it won’t be the same as constantly being connected.

You won’t receive constant updates from social media or have friends and family constantly texting you, but you will be able to make phone calls and send short text messages whenever you want to get in touch with someone. You can check in with your significant other, children, or other friend or family member to let them know how everything is going, but you won’t have to worry about the normal amount of noise.

Save Money

When you choose to rent a satellite phone rather than purchase one, you will even save some money. If you are only taking a few days, a week, or even a couple of weeks, it will be cheaper for you to rent a satellite phone for that time period than to buy.

Purchasing a satellite phone may be ideal for you if you spend a lot of time outside of normal cell phone range, but if you are just planning a vacation, a rental is much more ideal and will definitely save you some money. 

No Commitment 

There are plenty of different satellite phones out there and companies are coming out with new editions every year. If you are only going to use your satellite phone once a year, you might as well rent one. You won’t be committing to using the same phone year after year, but rather you can rent a new model instead. 

Try Out Different Products

There are several top brands of satellite phones and they all have different products. When you rent your satellite phone you can use different brands and models to see which is your favorite, and then if you decide to buy, you’ll be much more experienced and will know exactly what features are important to you.
