Thailand Prepaid SIM Card

Your brother is a chef and told you to find him some great Thai recipes while you're there.

One night in a small restaurant, you taste the most exquisite curry you have ever eaten. You ask the waitress if the cook can give you a recipe, but she goes one step further and brings the cook out to tell you personally.

You call your brother and hand the cook your phone, and across thousands of miles the secrets of great cuisine are unravelled.

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

The SIM Card for Thailand includes:

  • $15.00 (Bht 600) starter airtime credit
  • FREE incoming calls
  • A local phone number while in Thailand
  • Voicemail
  • Per second billing
  • SMS (text messaging)
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your Thailand 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.

Thailand 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...
