My husband and I just booked last minute tickets to Iceland. In the past, we have traveled with a special old-school (not smart) phone that only works overseas and we only used it for emergencies. Now we will need to have a smart phone with us because of the many excellent Covid safety protocols involve scanning emailed bar codes, etc. We use a Cricket service which does not have an option for an international plan and we can't just purchase a phone/SIM card on arrival because we will need to receive bar codes for our layover and on landing.
It seems that I should just go purchase an entirely new phone with the international plan option right away, but I haven't done any research and I don't have much time. Can someone please recommend an option that has worked for you? I don't like to travel with expensive things so a cheaper option would be great.
Thanks for your help!
