Congratulations on your upcoming trip because the word recharge shouldn’t only apply to your cell phone. Here are some great tips to ensure you have a great vacation. These tips are geared specifically for your cell phone. I know I’m never without one and can’t imagine being on vacation without one.

Check Your Phone Plan

First figure out the fine print on your phone plan to make sure you will have coverage at your destination. If you don’t have coverage you can rent one locally. Also make sure you understand any fees and charges that might be applied when calling to and from non local places.
