Data SIM Card for Europe
Our Data SIM Card for Europe is the perfect solution for travelers who are traveling to one or more European countries. The SIM card is plug and play and offers 12GB of data service at 4G speeds for up to 30 days. If your trip is longer than 30 days or, in the unlikely event that you need more than 12 GB, you will need an additional SIM card. This data SIM card is a 3-1 SIM card format meaning, it will fit in any unlocked phone or tablet. Please note that you cannot tether with this particular SIM card nor can you use it in a wireless hotspot.
There are no contracts to sign or monthly bills to pay and not difficult plans to understand. Simply insert it into your unlocked device and you are ready to go virtually wherever you go in Europe. As the SIM is plug and play, there is no configuration or activation procedure to follow. Once you start using the data SIM card, you will have 30 days of usage or 12GB of data, whichever comes first.
Using your own, dedicated data service is much more secure than using Wi Fi. Many hackers target tourists when traveling so that they can access vital information such as online bank passwords. In fact, 90% of all security breaches occur in hotels and tourist destinations.
Roaming with US or Canadian providers is either painfully slow or very expensive and often, you do not even know how much you are paying until you get your cell phone bill. Our SIM card is pay as you go so you can control the costs and will never get a phone bill from your current carrier.

How It Works
Place an order online or through one of our specialists. Please be sure that your smartphone or tablet is unlocked and that it does accept a SIM card. Tip: if you order 2 weeks or more prior to your departure, Cellular Abroad offers free ground shipping.
2) Insert the SIM into your tablet or smartphone upon arrival in Europe
Make sure your cell phone is unlocked (not applicable for tablets). The SIM card is plug and play and will give you 12GB for 30 days. You will receive a text message that will confirm activation along with a link for checking your usage and balance. If you need more than 30 days of data, you will need to purchase a secondary data SIM card. Please note that if you insert the SIM card in the United States, it may activate your 30 day plan.
Turn on your device to access the internet. As long as there is 4G coverage in the countries where service is available, you will be able to access the internet.
Data SIM Card FAQs
Why do I need a data SIM card?
If you need a convenient, secure and affordable way to have data connectivity for your smartphone or tablet, a Cellular Abroad data SIM card is the easiest way to do so and is also much less expensive than roaming with Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T or other carriers. In addition, since the service is pay as you go, you do not risk incurring a huge roaming bill.
Why don't I just use wifi?
WiFi is typically slow, never secure and seldom convenient. If you rely on apps such as Google Maps, it is not feasible to track down a Wi Fi connection. When you are on the go is typically when you need to access data the most and if there is one thing that can spoil a trip is not having immediate access to the internet, particularly when you are trying to research a restaurant or buy museum tickets online.
Can I get a standard, micro or a nano SIM card?
Yes. The SIM card is 3-1 meaning that you can snap out the size that you need. Please make sure what size you need to snap out for your device prior to snapping out the SIM card or you may have to purchase a SIM card adapter to resize it to the proper size.
How to I activate my SIM?
Put it in your device. It's that simple!
Can I add additional credit?
Unless you have a UK SIM card, you cannot add additional data credit to this SIM card.
Does the credit expire?
The data credit is good for 30 days from the day of activation.
How much data do I get and will it be enough?
You get 12GB of data which is plenty for 99% of all travelers.
How far in advance should I order?
You can order a data SIM card at any time prior to your departure or even during your trip. However, if you order it 2 weeks or more before your trip, you can take advantage of the free shipping.
