Click on the country name below to find SIM cards, rates, service life, coverage area and/or to purchase. If you are traveling to a destination that is not listed below be advised that every country on the continent of Europe has at least one GSM carrier and prepaid SIM card product.
Prepaid SIM cards can typically be purchased from US $17 to US $79 and nearly every time include free incoming calls originating from anywhere in the world. With international roaming rates, from Nextel and other domestic carriers, that start at $0.99 and quickly approach $3, a prepaid SIM card is a very attractive alternative. A cell phone rental offers similar service as international roaming but with higher airtime rates and the addition of a $99/week handset rental charge. When you compare the airtime rates at US $60+/hour, a prepaid SIM card is clearly a bargain that often pays for itself after just 30 minutes of use.
Roaming SIM cards are an excellent choice for travelers planning to visit multiple countries. Roaming SIM cards offer the simplicity of having a single SIM card and phone number that works in a large number of countries around the world.
