For travelers who can’t stand to be out of touch while out of town, here’s one easy tip for saving money abroad: Ditch your pricey U.S.-based BlackBerry (or other homegrown smartphone) and pick up a local cell phone instead. EL AL Israel Airlines cuts out the middleman with its most recent promotion, which gives 1,000 vouchers for free Motorola phones to passengers flying round-trip to Israel from all EL AL U.S. cities (except Los Angeles). Winners receive digital vouchers with tickets on a first-come, first-served basis, and flights must depart from the U.S. by Wednesday, June 30. Win the device and score 60 minutes of outgoing local calls once you touch down in Israel, free incoming calls from anywhere in the world, and a complimentary charger. The best part: EL AL delivers the phone straight to your destination, no rental fees or obligation to buy extra minutes apply, and the phone is yours to keep.
