    I bought my SIM card from

    They were very prompt in sending the card (only a few days via trackable shipping) and it’s very, very easy to use.

    Plus, it looks like they’re giving huge discounts plus start-up credit!

    They also have different plans to suit your needs.

    Hey all – I’m keen to get a SIM card from the contiki place that you used Alex… How do you recharge with credit when over in UK/Europe?? Do you just go to a store and buy more credit? are there many places to do this or only a few??
    Cheers, Jared

    Hey Jared,

    It was very easy to recharge with credit, and there’s no need to visit a store at all!

    You can recharge from the internet, via 24/7 customer service from your mobile (free), or by auto-recharge by registering your credit card.

    There’s different denominations you can choose from too.

    I recharged on the internet the whole time, and you can also manage your account and view details online as well, which I found to be very convenient.

    Hope this helps!
