Before leaving for vacation, it’s not uncommon to double- or triple-check that devices, chargers and adapters are packed, especially when heading overseas for some rest and relaxation. But did you check to make sure you have the right device and plan before you jet-set to your final destination? Verizon Wireless offers several options for travelers to stay connected during any type of trip.

First, learn how to travel smart and spend less on your data usage overseas. Determining how much data you will use can help keep your vacation budget in check. The Verizon Wireless Interactive Trip Planner makes it easy to determine the best plan and allows you to see what services are available by country. Additionally, Global Service Plans let you access voice, messaging and data services abroad – even on cruise ships!

Devices also need to be able to travel across the pond and Verizon Wireless carries several Global Ready devices, including satellite phones. The Verizon Wireless Global Travel Program is a great way to stay in touch when traveling internationally, especially if your trip is less than 21 days.

Lastly, the Verizon Wireless MORE Everything Plan℠ makes it easy to stay connected with the new friends you made on vacation. Send an unlimited number of text messages from back home in the U.S. to over 200 countries worldwide. International long distance calling is also available.
