How To Avoid A Huge Cellphone Bill

Before heading off to sunnier destinations consider doing your homework when it comes to cellphones because if you use your Canadian –carrier mobile phone when travelling you’ll come home to a crushing bill.

Has this happened to you?

Here are a few tips on how to avoid a crushing bill:

  • Get a SIM card in the country you’re visiting and a local pay-as-you-go package
