Barbados Prepaid SIM Card

Sunbathing on the beach in Barbados, you meet the girl of your dreams and decide to get married there and then.

But first, she insists you have to call her parents back home and ask for permission…

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

The SIM Card for Barbados includes:

  • 20 BDS ($10 USD) starter airtime credit
  • A local cell phone number in Barbados
  • FREE incoming calls
  • Voicemail
  • SMS (text messaging)
  • E-Mail
  • GPRS
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your Barbados SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 900/1800 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.

  • Save up to 70% on international calls
  • Make calls from over 150 countries worldwide
  • No sign-up or monthly fees
  • Toll-free access numbers
