Why Rent?


People come to us for a reason – they cannot rely on traditional methods of communication in the location they are travelling to. It is essential that you equip yourself with an alternative means of communication to ensure your safety in remote areas and we have the knowledge to advise you on the most appropriate device for your requirements.


Our rental service makes satellite communications affordable ensuring no large upfront investment in equipment – in fact 90% of our rental products do not even require a deposit. We find that many of our business customers prefer to rent equipment making it easier to apply costings to specific projects and avoiding administration of fixed assets and the depreciation they incur.

Increase Engagement

Quite often devices are rented for expeditions or charity challenges where participants want to raise awareness of their journey – our devices are perfect for increasing engagement with satellite tracking devices providing shareable live tracking and satellite data hotspots allowing you to update social media and send low res images.

Easy Rental Process

We make renting your satellite communications equipment as easy as possible:

  • Free next day delivery and collections
  • No requirement to purchase airtime
  • All the accessories you need are included in the price
  • Just 7 day minimum term
  • Online booking

Our Rental Range

We have adapted our rental product range significantly in the past decade to meet customer needs. We now rent a variety of devices that are lightweight and easy to transport making them perfect for field use or projects on remote job sites where traditional communications are not available:

  • Satellite Phones
  • Satellite Trackers
  • Satellite Internet & WiFi Devices
  • SOS Beacons including PLBs and AIS Devices
  • Two-Way Radios

We are constantly evaluating and upgrading our range to meet our customers’ need. One of our newest additions to the rental range was the ICOM IC-SAT100 Push-To-Talk radio which works via Iridium’s global satellite network to provide resilient voice communications. A rugged and dependable product with many great features, it can be used for emergency purposes or recreational activities to give the user confidence that help will always be available even in the most remote locations.

Our Company’s History
