Rental costs (example calculation)

Fictional rental of an Iridium 9555 satellite phone for your Adventure vacation in Alaska:

You fly to Fairbanks (Alaska) on 11.05. and return on 01.06. You want to have the phone with you as early as 09.05. so that you can test it at your leisure - which we highly recommend. The satellite phone arrives back at our place on 03.06.

The rental period is therefore 09.05. to 03.06. = 26 days.
Rental price 26 days á 6.50 Euro/day = 169.00 Euro (plus shipping)

Personal use: You call home 4 times for 4.5 minutes each time. Whether landline or mobile network makes no difference to the price. Furthermore, you send a short text message as an e-mail on each of 5 days. According to the connection prices, this results in:

18 minutes = 32.40 Euro
5 e-mails = 3.50 Euro

Price to reassure your loved ones at home: 204.90 Euro
