Austria Prepaid SIM Card

You took a wrong turn somewhere and ended up in the village of Thal.

Munching down a wiener schnitzel, you suddenly stumble upon the birthplace of the Californian Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger!

Better call your proud Republican Californian uncle to let him know.

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Austria or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Austria SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.

What our partner Telestial says

A prepaid Austria SIM card with an international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while in Austria. All incoming calls while in Austria are FREE, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Austria like you do at home. And unlike home, your Austria SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Austria includes:

  • 20 EUR ($24 USD) starter airtime credit
  • A local cell phone number in Austria
  • FREE Incoming Calls
  • Voicemail
  • SMS (text messaging)
  • Email
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your Austria SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 1800 compatible international cell phone. If you do not have your own international cell phone, Telestial has several compatible models available for your review and consideration.

Global SIM Cards

Both Telestial and ekit offer a range of region specific and global SIM cards. Starting at just US$ 9 (with credit included!), these cards represent good value for travellers interested in having only one SIM card and phone number to cover multiple countries, whilst keeping roaming charges in check.

Austria Calling Card

For those not interested in travelling with a mobile, calling cards are a great way to call home cheaply. Consider these benefits:

  • Save up to 70% on international calls
  • Make calls from over 150 countries worldwide
  • No sign-up or monthly fees
  • Toll-free access numbers
  • Pay in advance or pay later
  • And much more...
