Our Inmarsat iSatPhone 2 satellite phone rentals are ideal for use anywhere on land, with the exception of the polar regions and mountainous terrain very far away from the equator.

Your rental starts on the day you receive your rental satellite phone, and you can specify the date on which you wish to receive it during the checkout process on our website. We will send the satellite phone to you at the start of the rental period, and you simply phone our couriers to come and collect it from you at the end of your rental period- prepaid return waybills provided.

How to Use iSatPhone 2

SOS Button

If you have rented your iSatPhone 2 and you want to be able to make use of the SOS button on your phone, you will need to contact GEOS and buy travel insurance and or search and rescue insurance prior to your travels. You will be required to register your rental phone with GEOS prior to departure, and you will also need to deregister it from GEOS after your return. There is a USD50 handling fee for us to handle deregistration on your behalf.

Simply register your phone at and you can travel with the peace of mind of knowing that when you press that SOS button, the guys at GEOS will know you’re in trouble. During registration you will inform GEOS of who your emergency contacts are, so that when you press the SOS button they know which relatives, friends, or colleagues to notify that you’re in trouble.

If you intend to be able to make use of the SOS button in an emergency it is imperative that you test it before your departure from civilisation to make sure that it functions correctly and that you are satisfied that it is working OK. Please note that, the standard service from GEOS does not include any search and rescue (SAR) services. Should you want search and rescue you can sign up for that as an optional extra, at a nominal fee. See the GEOS website for details.
