Satellite Phone Rentals for the Budget-Minded Traveler
It's an unpredictable world out there and can be very dangerous even for the most seasoned adventurer. If your travels take you away from civilization and cellular service, a satellite phone could save your life. Outfitter Satellite offers satellite phone rentals at a daily rate, so you can have this vital method of communication when you need it. All our rentals include accessories like cases, charging systems, extra batteries, and everything else you need to keep going.
Iridium 9555 Rentals
Iridium satellite phones are the most dependable in mountainous terrain, and coverage is available all over the world including the poles. An Iridium 9555 is great for voice calls and SMS messaging up to 160 characters. Light email usage is possible with our optional Satellite Email Kit. The 2.4 kbps data rate is not suitable for web browsing or broadband applications, but if you don't need anything beyond voice, text, and email this satellite phone is a fantastic choice for anywhere on Earth. Rent an Iridium 9555 here.
Inmarsat IsatPhone 2 Rentals
Inmarsat satellite phones offer superior voice connection quality between 50°N and 50°S latitude, although this can be disrupted by mountainous terrain or other tall obstructions. The IsatPhone 2 is excellent in the Caribbean and any relatively flat land within 50° of the Equator in which the handset can have a mostly clear line of sight to the horizon. It has SMS messaging and email functionality up to 160 characters. The IsatPhone 2 also has an emergency distress call feature which sends a pre-configured emergency message including your GPS position, while also initiating a voice call. Rent an Inmarsat IsatPhone 2 here.
Explorer 510 BGAN Internet Terminal Rentals
The Explorer 510 is a small, convenient Inmarsat BGAN terminal that provides web browsing capabilities as well as voice and text. Your existing iPhone or Android can connect to an app to use the BGAN terminal to make calls over the Inmarsat satellite network within the same coverage area restrictions as the IsatPhone 2. The Explorer 510 BGAN is the option you need if you'll require broadband internet as well as voice call capabilities. Rent an Explorer 510 BGAN Terminal here.
