"For a few euros a day, avoid the hassle of carrying or unlocking your own smartphone or packing guidebooks and maps - all the information you need is on your state of the art rental smartphone with easy operations and instant communications with Ben, Nina and helpful locals."

"Absolutely fantastic customer service! Love the city mapping app. It was so useful to get you around the city and beyond. Brilliant wifi service. Response from the insidr community was very fast. Can't recommend them enough!!!"

"Loved using INSIDR in Paris this week. So convenient and helpful. Would recommend to anyone!"
ERIN, USA, JULY 2016
"Rent this phone! I used the INSIDR phone for 2 weeks in France and it was absolutely perfect--everyone else in my group agreed they'd use it next time. They dropped the phone off to us at the CDG airport, so we were never without it, and the pricing was the same or cheaper than what my carrier provided [...] Safety note: These guys kept us constantly updated on protest locations, strikes, and other breaking news that might affect us. I was a solo traveler for part of my adventure and they checked in on me every day."

"Renting a smartphone through INSIDR was the best decision I made for my trip to France. I highly recommend getting this phone for a quick visit or even a few weeks, which is what I did. I was traveling to France with my family of five, including three teenagers. Our trip was a combination of site seeing and visiting relatives. The maps, special tourist features and preloaded apps are all at your fingertips. In Paris, there are unlimited helpful resources to assist you in navigating the city, metro and attractions.
What I loved about this phone was how useful it was outside of Paris. The key features that were beneficial to my family were the unlimited data and hotspot option. We visited Normandy and many other cities and relied on the INSIDR phone as our GPS. With the hot-spot feature all five members of my family were able to hook-up and use the Internet, check emails, Facebook, Instagram, send and post pictures to friends and family. All this without having to keep track of phone data usage – worry free! While traveling my new camera stopped working, I easily looked up several camera shops and was able to call them directly to find out if they could fix my camera. Benjamin and the INSIDR team were always ready to answer questions and give guidance. This is a wonderful company and product!"
JERMYN, SINGAPORE, JUNE 2016
"Highly recommend INSIDR!! This is such a value for money device and the service they are offering is unique and refreshing. The folks and insidr will give you tips and tricks required for you to best understand and enjoy pairs. Also the community chats keeps you updated with all the latest information you need to plan your daily trips! The best of all the folks at insidr are beyond awesome, you can hit them up with anything and they will get back to you immediately!"
PATTI, USA, JUNE 2016
"I highly recommend Insidr Paris! Ben kindly delivered the rental to my daughter's apartment with clear instructions. It was loaded with maps, museum and restaurant recommendations and tips for avoiding long queues at attractions, helping us make the most of our visit!
At one point, we were having difficulty finding a tour at a specific time that worked around my daughter's university class schedule. A quick text to Ben and he was able to secure a spot with a reputable tour company at a time that worked for us. It was like having our own personal concierge, just great! The price was very competitive as compared to purchasing a similar device in Paris yet it contained so much more! Such a great idea, well done Ben, Marc and Nina!
I'd gladly use Insidr Paris in the future!"
CEDRIC, USA, JUNE 2016
"INSIDR Paris was the perfect solution for our trip to Paris from New York. Instead of going through the hassle of unlocking your phone, buying a French SIM card with credits and refilling those credits, we decided to try Insidr Paris.
We got a beautiful new LG smartphone with unlimited data + tethering for 40 euros/week. Since we were only there for 7 days, and the whole family needed internet access, we were all able to get unlimited access to the internet for a great price.
What's even better, the Insidr team will send one of its employees to meet you ANYWHERE in Paris to deliver and pick up the phone from you when you are done. I was extremely impressed with their fast responses to any questions we had, and their custom apps for android that helped us better understand current events, museum deals, and anything else you might want to know about Paris.
Thank you so much, we will definitely be using you again!"
DEAN, USA, JUNE 2016
"INSDR made our trip in Paris absolutely amazing. We were able to get great recommendations, daily updates on the weather, tips for events, and all within minutes of asking people questions. It was the PERFECT tool for our stay in Paris and I am sad to think about vising any other city without having INSIDR to help me."
ELAINE & JEAN, USA, JUNE 2016
"Excellent service for first time visitors to Paris, and even frequent visitors like me! I loved how quickly I got responses to my questions."
VIVIAN, USA, MAY 2016
"I loved having this phone and those angels in my pocket. If I had any questions or concerns INSIDR answered so quickly that I felt any sort of travel anxiety melt away. I would have been completely lost in many tourist traps if i hadn't signed up for INSIDR."
SHELLEY, AUSTRALIA, MAY 2016
"I've always had problems with simcards and data for my phone on my travels. Insidr Paris solved them for Paris. I bought it online before I left Australia. They deliver and collect and are just so charming. I tethered my own iphone to their android phone so I was able to use my iphone with my own social media, apps etc. It just meant I had to carry two phones. My husband and I came to Paris together, and he had an Insidr Phone too so we could phone each other. Their android phone is easy to master. They answer technical questions on the chat almost immediately, the Paris community chat is great for hints on where to go and eat. Keep up the great work Nina Ben and Marc. Brilliant product. Get to work on those other European cities please!"
WALTER, BRAZIL, APRIL 2016
"Very good concept and service. From the first contact via website, through receiving the phone and finally on returning it back, everything went very smoothly. The use is simple and incredibly effective. Also the community of users and the help of the INSIDR team makes all the difference. it was the first time I used and certainly is not going to be the last. I hope they are able to expand the service to other cities, not only in France, but in other countries as well. Congrats to the whole team!!!!"
LEON, USA, APRIL 2016
"What a wonderful service. I've been to Paris before and muddled through the tourist attractions but this service adds a new dimension to your travels. Ben dropped the phone off with my hotel concierge as I was not able to meet him at the time. The phone is essentially your on demand Paris concierge. Ben and his team will provide you with near immediate responses to any question beyond the usual restaurant recommendations and must see local spots. Ben and his team found me a laundromat deep into the night that's near my hotel which I failed to find on Google (by hey, my French is very limited so using Google effectively in French was out of the question), shops for a specific makeup and a whole host of other things that I have forgotten about. The phone is loaded with custom maps as well as apps for the Metro and RER trains. Ben even included an external battery in case your phone runs out of juice. Theres data and GPS on the phone so you are never lost. And if you get lost anyways you can always call Ben or Nina and they will guide you. I would have given the service a 10 star rating if I could. Any first time visitor to Paris MUST get the Insidr phone. Thank you Ben and your team!"
CANDICE & HEMANI, NEW ZEALAND, MARCH 2016
"What an adventurous three days spent in the city of love. We truly lived and enjoyed every single minute we had here. Thank you #INSIDRPARIS for the smartphone guide to get around and to plan our days. Marc, Nina and Ben are the best!! The only way to enjoy and see Paris worry free!! Highly recommended for any tourist.
So long Paris.... See you soon!!"
RASHEEDA, USA, MARCH 2016
"I absolutely love INSIDR! They deliver and pickup the phone so rest assured. It's not just a phone because Insidr helps you navigate around Paris recommending various restaurants, shops, and things to do! I highly recommend Insidr Paris for your next trip you won't be disappointed."
FREDRIKA, SWEDEN, MARCH 2016
"We found a few of our most memorable foodie experiences through INSDR when in Paris. This great service supplied us with constant wifi and insider tips we never would have found out on our own! Sadly, we didn't have time to try all the features. Next time ... RECOMMENDED!"
