Buying a Travel SIM Card

Your plan for the overseas trip is made, flights and hotels are booked and you’re almost ready to go. But don’t forget to think about how you’re going to stay connected with your family and friends during the trip. We all love to stay in contact with each other and share happy moments. And at its best, in real time.

Instead of paying your home operator a fortune for data roaming you should buy a Travel SIM card. A Travel SIM card is nothing else than an affordable way to have internet access whenever you need it. You don’t need to chase doggy WiFi hotspots in a café or rely on the slow WiFi hotspot at the hotel (which might even be more costly if it isn’t for free).

Travel SIM as an excellent alternative

With a Travel SIM you have internet access at your fingertips. You can either use your smartphone or plug the Travel SIM into a mobile hotspot, so called MiFi. Both options have their advantages.

But which Travel SIM should you buy? What needs to be considered? Well there are a few criteria. First of all, you should immediately be able to understand the offer. If it is too complex, you will risk paying too much or spending too much time while trying to find out. Then obviously, the price plays an important role. However, the coverage is important as well, meaning where the service is available.

And of course, convenience plays an important role. Can you buy additional data packages easily or is it difficult? Ideally, you can buy additional volumes with one click over an App.

As you need to plug in the Travel SIM into a device, you should also ensure that the required form factors are supported. Basically, there are three form factors on the market today:

  • 2FF 25mm x 15mm x 0.76mm – called Mini SIM
  • 3FF 15mm x 12mm x 0.76mm – called Micro SIM
  • 4FF 12.3mm × 8.8mm × 0.67mm – called Nano SIM

Most smartphones use the Nano SIM card (iPhones) or the Micro SIM cards (many Android devices).

Ensure that there’s support available as well. In case you have a problem or question, you would like to be sure to get your issues addressed.

And at last but not least, consider where you’re able to buy the SIM card. Most conveniently, the SIM card is available on the internet. Buying from a trusted store is certainly a good sign as well. However, watch out for delivery charges. Many offers come with very attractive prices but demand high delivery costs.
