You've finally landed in Bali after an 18 hour flight from New York City and all you really want is to relax by the beach in the swanky vacation rental you secured online. But wait, before you can kick back you have to text the rental company so they can deliver your keys. Texting, not a problem right? Think again! International texting isn't cheap and high roaming charges will skyrocket your monthly bill... not exactly what you want to find in your mailbox after a week of R and R. So what are you to do?
