Emergency Phone in Peru

Jump to last reply

Does anyone have any advice for the best way to have an option for emergency phone contact while traveling in Peru?

We're trying to decide between a phone card, or renting a phone + sim card, or other options? We only want this for emergencies (e.g. Cancelled flights, missed connections) so that we can contact either local agents or our US operator if we run into a problem.

We are traveling pretty much all over the country for a couple of weeks, and have no idea if public phones are freely available (which would make a phone card OK), or if cell phone coverage is decent (not much point renting a cell phone if there is limited reception).

If anyone has had experience, or has suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.

Pete and Marcia
