Data roaming charges can be very painful for frequent travelers - what are the ways to help yourself with reducing that bill?

There's a lot of helpful advice out there in regards to saving on your cell phone data and avoiding data charges while staying abroad, and we've decided to make a list of the steps you can take that actually make a difference.

Switching to airplane mode throughout your international trip to avoid accessing international roaming

People have been reporting quite a few cases where they had just landed in an airport abroad, and those few minutes before they had the chance to switch off their data off altogether caused them to receive a huge bill. Basically, even if you don’t make any calls or send messages, a single notification may automatically count as using roaming. That’s why many travelers choose to stay in airplane mode throughout the whole trip - it still allows you to access WiFi, but prevents from accidentally accessing data roaming.

Preloading important files before your international trip

Make a list of documents and files which are a must: start off with your IDs, bookings and tickets to avoid having to download them on the spot. Then, move on to maps (apps like HERE allow you to use their GPS with no internet), mark the sights and restaurants you’re meaning to visit, and don’t forget to pre-download any entertainment you might need - TV series or books. This way, you’ll never find yourself in a situation that requires you to download something big on mobile data, and only need to Google a thing or two.

Switch to a mobile carrier that supports unlimited data roaming

Ultimately, the only thing that is going to save you from all that hassle and help reduce phone bills for data roaming while traveling is the right mobile carrier.
