What Every Traveller Should know about a Global SIM Card

If you are planning an overseas trip or traveling more than a few days, there are several things you will have to consider. One of those important items that should be put on your ‘to do’ list is deciding on how to handle excessive mobile phone costs, when you make or receive calls, send texts or use a lot of data.


No-one wants to return home from a relaxing holiday to find a whopping bill waiting for them at home. The ideal solution to this problem would be to invest in an International SIM card or a local SIM card and top up with pay-as-you-go credit.



To select the best SIM card for travel you have to take certain things into consideration, such as:

•       What countries provide you with free incoming calls

•       What added benefits the travel SIM card provides

•       If it offers a coverage just in Europe, or a group of countries or worldwide

•       Whether you can use the SIM in various devices

•       Whether rates vary across different countries for calls, data and SMS or if the SIM are             for calls only or for SMS messages and data roaming
