Best Prepaid SIM Cards for Europe

About Prepaid SIM Cards for Europe

In order to use any new SIM card you have to have an unlocked phone. Depending where you live and what provide you have, your phone may be unlocked already, or you may just have to pay a fee to have it unlocked. 

Why Get a PrePaid SIM Card for Europe?

Nowadays we all rely on our mobile devices for everything we do. Getting a prepaid SIM card for Europe allows you to hit the ground running. 

Prepaid SIM Cards from Europe are much cheaper than using your provider's Roam Like Home plan. You can get this shipped to your home and insert them when you arrive in Europe. Once they are used for the first time is when the credit validity starts.

You set up your card APN settings before you go, and when you arrive switch your SIM card to your new European one and enjoy the benefits.

Credit Validity

What does Credit Validity mean?

Credit validity is for how long you credit is valid for. It starts from the first use of data, phone call or SMS text. This is not to be confused with SIM card validity.

Basically, the amount of data , phone calls and SMS texts you have as part of your plan, is there for the time listed in the credit validity. This is when you would have to top-up your plan.

For example with the Orange Smart Comfort S plan, you would have to top-up your plan after 14 days or if you run out of your 8 GB of data, call time or SMS.
