Germany Prepaid SIM Card

Your itinerary for Germany looks like this: spend a few days in Berlin, drink lots of beer, go to Cologne, drink more beer, wear Lederhosen in Munich, visit the birthplace of Arnold Scwharzenegger and drink a beer in his honour.

To your great surprise and dismay, you discover from a German friend that Arnie was born in Austria, nor Germany.

You make an abusive phone call back home to the man who told you that Arnie was born in Germany.

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Germany 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 Germany 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

Travel to Germany and stay in touch with a German prepaid SIM card and an international cell phone. It is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while overseas. All incoming calls while you travel through Germany are FREE, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone like you do at home. And unlike home, your Germany SIM chip is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Germany includes:

  • ($15.00 USD) starter airtime credit
  • After first minute calls are billed at 10 second intervals
  • Calls within Germany as low as US $0.07/min.
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check
  • Free inbound calls / Free Voicemail

Please Note: Your Germany 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.

Germany Calling Card

  • 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...
