What if I need help?


These SIMs have a high success rate with connecting immediately. However, there is always the possibility of technical issues.

How do I make international calls?


This SIM does not come with international calls. Only calls to UK & European numbers are included in the 3000 minutes/texts. However, you can receive international calls for free.

We highly recommend using data applications as a smart alternative. This may be confusing at first but is definitely the most cost-effective way to travel connected as you are avoiding expensive international call rates.

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 message mobile numbers internationally for free.

We recommend using any of the following free apps.


Facebook Messenger

Google Hangouts



All of these apps are handy to use while travelling. However, you will need to have your friends and family saved as contacts. It is good to add contacts on these apps before you fly.

If you wish to have standard international calls:

You can purchase additional credit with and use the additional credit for international calls. * This is not an efficient way of calling internationally. As international calls will cost you on average 1.40 pound/minute.

This is only advised if you wish to have an emergency backup to call friends/family from home.

Normally I buy a sim when I get to a country but I am so glad I pre-bought the South America sim. Multiple people I spoke to were jealous of my deal! The coverage was great but most importantly there was no better local option. I can say 100% if you are going to Central America get this sim, the local sims are only 4gb and double the price
