Globalstar Rentals

If you are trying to find the right satellite phone to rent for an upcoming trip or vacation, a Globalstar satellite phone will provide excellent coverage in the US, Canada, Western Europe, and parts of the Caribbean. Please view the Globalstar Coverage map to determine if the location you are traveling to has coverage. If you are traveling outside of the Home Area on the map, then please select an Iridium Satellite Phone Rental instead. Globalstar satellite phones do not provide worldwide coverage as the Iridium's do.  You must have a clear unobstructed view of the sky in order to complete a call. We will help guide you through the rental process and provide you with the best customer service.

Below are more details about the different airtime options and accessories available with your rental.

We offer a pay as you go airtime plan and several bundled minute plans. With the pay as you go plan, usage is billed at a $0.99/minute, with no minimum usage requirement. The bundled plan options below offer discounted airtime rates for higher usage levels. When you place your order, select the plan that is best for your projected usage.

Globalstar satellite phones come with a US phone number. Calling to the Globalstar phone will only cost you if you do not have free long distance. Check with your cell/home service for the rates to call a Globalstar phone if you are unsure.

*Incoming SMS are limited to 30 characters per message. Outgoing SMS is not available for the GSP-1700

**This fee is added to the standard per minute rate. For example, if you make a long distance call to a country outside of the Home Service Area, then you will pay the standard rate plus the long distance rate ($0.99 + $0.30 = $1.29/min)

Coverage Area
Globalstar satellite phones do not offer worldwide coverage. They are geared towards use in the US, Canada, Western Europe and parts of the Caribbean. Please look at the coverage map below to ensure where you are traveling is covered in Orange, and within the Home Service Area (outlined in Red). Click here for a list of countries included in the Home Service Area. If you are traveling outside of this area, please see the Iridium Rentals instead.

Globalstar Coverage Map

Please remember that all handheld satellite phones can only be used outdoors with an unobstructed view of the sky. Obstructions can include but are not limited to buildings and trees. Inner city use is not recommended. Satellite phones are meant to be used where land lines or cell phones are either cost prohibitive or simply unavailable.

Rental Period
Your rental period begins on the day the phone is delivered, and ends on the day you give the phone back to FedEx using the provided Return Label. The minimum rental period is 1 week. Our Best Rate Calculator will automatically determine the best rate based on how long you will have the phone and the current rental rates. As a courtesy, our Best Rate Calculator automatically deducts the first day from the rental period for testing purposes (any airtime used on this day will still be billed based on the airtime plan chosen).
