Best calling plan/data plan while roaming in Tobago


Can someone advise on what the best calling & data plan may be for someone visiting Trinidad & Tobago for about 10 days? Are there prepaid phone cards available at the airport in Tobago, or is there a store on the island that we can pick it up at? We are a group of six, traveling to T&T in a weeks time. Any input is appreciated.

There is a bmobile and a Digicel kiosk at the Airport in Trinidad. As you exit Immigration the kiosks are there.

They will be able to help with sim and prepaid data plans.

There is a phone shop right across from the arrivals . Cross road about 50 yards on your right.

Calls are REALLY cheap on island.

You may want to just buy a cheap local phone, with credit already on it and use that while you are on island.

Failing that there is a place on the right in the shops at the first crossroads or in the lowlands mall which you may pass on the way to your accommodation.

On your 'smart' phone make sure you turn off roaming........................

WiFi is widely available throughout the island. See if where you are staying has a Blinkbox. wifi router. It connects wirelessly .

Phone topups are available everywhere to the local village hub if available.

Even if you were to run up the phone companies give you 'Bligh' minutes phone credit until you do top up.


Please advise your credit card company that you are going to Tobago as an unusual withdrawal or purchase from your normal shopping profile can cause them to stop your card!! A lot of hassle and calls to sort it out!
