international SIM cards

for cutting mobile phone costs abroad

We all need and want to be able to use our mobile phones when we travel abroad, but you may have already experienced the nasty shock when the bill comes in when we get back home again! And, of course, it's all too easy to get carried away when we're on holiday and want to share our fun with our friends and family. And, certainly if you want to keep up with business, it's very difficult to avoid using your mobile phone abroad when you need to keep on top of things.

How much does the SIM card cost?

sim4travel cards cost just £29.95, which includes £3 of credit. They then simply work like any other pay as you go card, but with call and text rates hugely less than you would pay using your UK SIM card abroad. To calculate likely savings, go on the sim4travel phoning abroad calculator and the sim4travel overseas mobile rates pages. You'll be amazed at how much money you will save!

Where will the SIM card work? How easy is to use?

sim4travel cards work in over 115 countries worldwide.

Using sim4travel

Simply swap your normal UK SIM card for your sim4travel card and your phone is ready to go. It is a good idea to make sure that your contacts are stored on your phone, they will then be available when you use your sim4travel card. But don’t forget you will need to include the international dialling code 0044 in front of all UK numbers, and remove the initial zero. So 0208 456 1234 becomes 0044 208 456 1234.

What about text messaging with an international SIM card?

It couldn't be easier! Just use text messaging just as if you were in the UK.
