Buy or Rent a Cellular Phone in Spain

Keeping in touch in Spain doesnt have to cost a small fortune! Buying or hiring a Spanish cell phone or SIM is the cheapest and most convenient way to make and receive calls from home. With a local cellular phone, all incoming calls are free while outgoing calls cost a fraction of the price of calls made through your service provider or from a hotel. Buying or renting a cell enables you to take advantage of the local cell phone rates in the country or countries where you'll be travelling. Cell phones from the US are generally incompatible with the Spanish GSM system and the majority will not work once you arrive in the country.
