Some of the service providers also give you the option of having it delivered to where you will be staying. After your stay is over and you planning to leave, getting them back to the providers is not a problem since there are airport booths that you can drop the devices off.
You also have the option of free tourist’s SIM cards which some countries offer like the Philippines. After you are done with immigration and custom while in the airport such companies will offer them to you. Your air company itself can offer you a voucher this giveaway and can use it for the card after landing. The good thing is that you will not be paying a cent for the 3G/4G/LTE internet connection and usage while in the country.
Not every destination you travel to will offer free traveler’s SIMs, but that should not be a problem since it is easy buying the roaming SIMs at the airport. The data roaming SIM cards are similar to the free traveler SIMs, the difference is only that the earlier offer larger data plans.
