Once in a life time you should have visited Russia. This huge country offers a lot to see. Starting from the big cities such as Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg to Volgograd the former Stalingrad. You might fancy a trip with the Trans-Siberian Express, the longest railway on earth? At last but not least, as a football fan you might want to attend the 2018 FIFA world cup in Russia. However, as you start giving thought to sharing your best Russian moments with your friends and family, the important questions pop up: Do I need a Russian SIM card to stay online or shall I use the roaming offer from my home operator?
These two options both have pros and cons. Basically, it’s very convenient to use your home operators offer. If you’re lucky, your home operator might even offer you a world cup roaming special. However, even in this case, it’s very likely that you’re going to overpay. So, the second option is buying a local SIM card in Russia but have you ever tried that? There’s the language barrier and the Cyrillic alphabet and the first thing you would have to do after arrival is look out for a shop where you could buy a local SIM card, get into the queue, sign up, and so on. Not very straightforward.
The alternative is a roaming or travel SIM card. These SIM cards usually work worldwide and offer you access to the mobile network to an attractive price. In addition, you can use them elsewhere as well. A few of them even come with a great convenience.
If you consider a roaming or travel SIM, please check a few criteria before you rush into buying the first one you see (see here for a complete list):
Easy to understand offer: Many offers seem to be attractive but turn out to be rather complex to understand. Be sure that the offer is transparent and doesn’t have any hidden traps.
Coverage: Nothing is more frustrating than finding out that the travel SIM card does not work at your preferred destination, in our case in Russia. You would be back to square one.
Supported SIM Form Factors: Ideally, the travel SIM supports the Mini, Micro and Nano format. This will ensure that you can plug it into any device.
Support: Available Support, which offers you help whenever you need it.
Therefore, Roaming or Travel SIM cards are an excellent alternative. These allow you to stay online during your venture in Russia. However, there are a lot of options, so choose wisely.
