It is a good price and the Pixel phones have several advantages (the quality of the camera is one). There also are large discounts available for some new Samsung phones, too. A little confusing about how long you have to keep your Google Fi service to keep the discount. In one spot it looks like 2 years, but in another it is 120 days.
For travelers, the big advantage of Fi is that the phone service works in most of the world and the data, I think, is at high speeds, unlike T-Mobile, for example, which gives you free data, but at slower speeds unless you pay extra.
Getting off the plane and having your phone just work like it does every other day is a great experience.
