This sim was so worth the money! It made my travel so smooth and hassle-free as there was no need to change sims country to country. The staff were also super helpful, quick to respond whenever I had a question

Explorer Travel SIM Card | 71 Countries | Data-Only | 12GB | 365 Days

Very disappointing. After good experiences with the US SimsDirect card, I thought that spending $80 on a never-expiring card would be a great deal. I’ve been in Hanoi for 2 days and the card is absolutely useless. It shows connection to VietnaMobile but I can’t use it for data, Google maps or anything.

SIM in Nordic countries

Worked really well in UK, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Purchased 2 x 3 recharge vouchers in London so was able to continue to use the same number for 10 weeks. Never ran out out of data even when using as GPS to get us out of some fairly difficult driving situations!

  • What was the highlight of your trip? Our highlight of a 1 month trip in Croatia was meeting family foir the first time.

No worries connection overseas

On arrival in Croatia we simply followed the simple instructions and inserted the Sim Card. Everything worked perfectly and we particularly liked the 24 hr connection to the internet and use of google maps for navigation. Thoroughly recommend for all travellers.

Great sim

The Sim worked well and was easy to use. I used it in 2 countries and it was fine in both. While in Spain, a couple of times i had to turn it off and on again when we had trecked through remote mountain areas with no reception but when I did, it was fine again.

What if I need help?

Our SIMs generally have no issues, however, nothing is a guarantee. Sometimes SIMs have technical issues that need troubleshooting.


If you land and your SIM does not work as expected then you need to follow these steps:


Step 1. Ensure you have followed all steps in your SIMs digital PDF guide.


Step 2. Reach out to us for support via Facebook live chat or email us at hello@simsdirect.com.au. We are active between 10am - 6pm AEDT.


Step 3. If our technical support cannot resolve your issue you will be entitled to our Money Back Guarantee and we will help you find a local option for the rest of your trip.

 

 

How can I make calls & texts?

This SIM does not come with calls or texts. However, you can use your data to make calls and texts.


We highly recommend using data applications as a smart alternative.


If you are wanting to call internationally:


We recommend using Skype. You can purchase credit and use it to make international calls to any number in the world at very affordable rates that are much cheaper than international call rates. $10 will get you roughly 250 minutes worth of international calls.


It's just like using your mobile but it uses internet data to make the call. Very handy! Works for landlines and mobile numbers.


If you are wanting to call and text mobile numbers internationally for free.


We recommend using any of the following free apps.


Whatsapp

Facebook Messenger

Google Hangouts

Viber

Skype


All of these apps are handy to use while travelling.

How do I check my balance?

You can keep track of your usage by registering a ‘My3’ account with ThreeUK.
Instructions are included in your PDF guide

No recharges?

This SIM can only be recharged in the UK or with a UK credit card.


If you need more data or a longer duration you will need to purchase multiple SIM cards and swap them out as you go.


If you want more than 1 SIM card you can checkout with the code: MULTISIM10 for 10% off your order.


How do I find my new number?

Your new UK mobile number is printed on the back of the SIM packaging.

Is this enough data for me?

12GB of data over 365 days is suitable for google maps and general web browsing.


If you are planning on streaming videos frequently, downloading large files or using social media then you may want to grab a second SIM card for more data.
