Tak­ing your phone abroad? Pre­pare for it.

While it’s easy and rel­a­tively in­ex­pen­sive to set up a global call/data plan with your car­rier, you can opt for the cheaper Wifi-only op­tion. Some ad­vice from Travel guru Rick Steves: “More bud­get-con­scious trav­el­ers can forego their car­rier’s in­ter­na­tional plans al­to­gether and do ev­ery­thing over Wi-Fi. Not only can you use Wi-Fi to get on­line, but you can also make phone calls and send text mes­sages at no charge. Sounds great — but you’ve got to find a hotspot first.”
