We are HolidayPhone

HolidayPhone was founded based on the belief that everyone should be able to use their phone as usual while traveling, no matter where they are. HolidayPhone’s founder, entrepreneur Joacim Boivie, traveled to Thailand and became frustrated with incredibly expensive phone call and mobile data charges while roaming with his home operator. He was convinced that there had to be a better solution that wouldn’t cost a fortune – and it turns out he was right! Based on his idea, HolidayPhone started providing local SIM cards for Thailand to travelers from all over the world. Today, HolidayPhone saves money for travelers every day in 30 different destinations! We are very proud to say that, since 2010, more than 100.000 travelers have trusted us to keep them connected abroad.

Our mission is to provide you with mobile freedom! You should be able to update Facebook from a beach in Thailand, stream music while skiing in the Alps or use your mobile GPS and Yelp to find that amazing restaurant in New York. All without having to worry about coming home to a huge phone bill!

Our international team is constantly on the lookout for the best deals from telecom operators globally and we pair their offerings with our own Call Forwarding solution.
