Recently there was an article relating to a worker who lost his life walking to search for help after his vehicle became bogged in outback Western Australia. An incident such as this is avoidable in a few ways:
Outback Australia is a tough, brutal and unforgiving environment. There are many unsealed, sparsely utilised through roads that can catch out the unsuspecting or even experienced traveler when something goes wrong. A tyre blowout or getting your vehicle bogged could be the beginning of a serious incident. With access to a personnel tracker or a satellite phone its easy to get yourself help by calling emergency departments or pushing a panic alert. If you are heading out to the outback, whether its for business or just an outback adventure, its worth the piece of mind to hire a satellite phone. We offer both short term and long term rental options, or purchase a satellite phone outright and take advantage of a plan that suits your needs.
We can also deliver rental phones via courier if you are not based in Perth.
