Whether you are traveling for business or leisure, alone or with family, saving money has become an inherent part of travel planning. From apps that help you shop around for the best hotel rate, to those that keep an eye out for the lowest plane fare, the entire travel industry has shifted to help consumers become more penny conscious.
So, you book your plane tickets after comparing on various websites and book your hotel on an app a friend recommended as it has the lowest rates. You plan your activities and crowdsource for the best restaurants, but a few days before you depart, you realize you have not figured out your phone situation.
Using your regular cell phone will guarantee you come back to an outrageous bill, so that’s not a good choice. What to do then? Israeli carriers have no-contract policies, which means you can sign up for a plan and cancel at any time. These plans are designed for those living in Israel or at least staying for prolonged periods of time, however, some have figured this as a loophole and have made it their solution for keeping in touch while in Israel, even if for only a week or two.
Sounds ideal, right? Well, a few days ago, I came across a post on Facebook that showcased why too good to be true is sometimes just that: too good to be true. “I took a line out for a few weeks for visitors to Israel and was told I would be able to disconnect and cancel my contract in one simple phone call. When I called to disconnect, first time after waiting for half an hour the phone just hung up on me, after waiting another half an hour it turns out there are only two ways to disconnect either they email you a form that they can only receive back via fax or snail mail. The other option is to walk into their 'customer service' center, that they only have two of in the city," said the poster. This isn’t at all uncommon. Besides, as you are wrapping up your trip, who wants to have to think about canceling services? Not to mention that if you forget to cancel in time, you’ll be charged for yet another month!
With this in mind, we have developed UniSimCard Israel, a prepaid SIM card valid for either 14 or 30 days. No cancellation required, no activation fee, and at the most competitive rates on the market.
