Staying in Touch While Traveling Abroad

When you’re traveling internationally, you most likely want to keep in touch with family and friends back home, as well as your travel buddies and new friends that you meet along the way. Well, staying in touch has gotten a lot easier!

WhatsApp Icon EverAfter Travel Agency

WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE app that you can download for your smartphone that uses your WiFi connection (or mobile data when not on WiFi) to allow you to send messages, images, audio or video without having to use an international phone plan. You can also make voice and video calls without incurring international charges as well.


That’s right, WhatsApp lets you text and call other WhatsApp users while you’re traveling internationally – whether they’re in the same country as you or a different country.

This was a game changer for me when I learned about it a couple years ago!

I love using WhatsApp for group chats with the people I’m traveling with or for calling back home. The interface is super easy to navigate, and I like that it uses my existing contacts so I don’t have to re-enter anyone’s info.

If you already use WhatsApp, you can click here to read about its latest features and some cool tricks that you might not be familiar with.

WhatsApp is now the most popular and convenient way to stay in touch while traveling abroad with over 1.5 billion monthly users, and I’d definitely recommend checking it out for your next trip!
