Price is €750 in The Netherlands, plus €45 for the simcard and €85 for 80 minutes airtime. That's a lot of money. On the other hand it's cheaper than dedicated satellite phones and you have only one phone to worry about.

Edit: I saw an offer in the UK for €580, including card and airtime. I think I'll wait a bit more....

Happy travels,

Gee

Just bought one. It's a bit bulky, being used to a slim iPhone. Installs easily and works like a treat (in The Netherlands).
I'll update next year somewhere from Africa

Happy trails,

Gee

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
