This travel SIM card from Canadian startup KnowRoaming is designed to make it so that you never have to know the woes of expensive roaming charges ever again. If you're someone who absolutely must have your phone on you when globetrotting, normally you're forced to either purchase a local SIM card or get yourself on an international phone plan to avoid racking up exorbitant costs. However, KnowRoaming provides travelers with a third option that makes international travel even more hassle-free.

KnowRoaming's solution takes the form of a small sticker that goes on top of your existing SIM card, so that when you arrive in a place where you don't have cell coverage, you're able to tap into KnowRoaming's app and choose a desired network.
