Couldnt have travelled without it!
My husband and I took my parents on a long dreamed of a road trip to the States. I ordered a SIM for each couple so we could find each other if we chose to do different things BUT what I failed to realize was how much data and how many calls one makes while on a driving holiday. The data alone powered my maps app which meant I didn't have to pay $18.99 per day for the GPS in the vehicle! So saved a bundle there. Peace of mind being able to call my parents at any time was also fabulous. Ringing ahead for accommodation and restaurants is just a given but when you travel to a different country - for a SIM to just work made me ecstatic!
Travel Sim card overseas
the best thing ever - my friend told me about this card as I had never heard about it before so I ordered and it worked a treat. as soon as I got off the plan popped in the sim card and instantly had access to everything I needed to stay in touch with family at home and my girlfriend also bought one so we could call each other and also use to call and make bookings at hotels as we were on a road trip through the USA.
Japan Travel Made Easy
The entire SIM card process was a breeze. All the steps--ordering, shipping, installing, and using--were trouble free. The unlimited data for Google Maps, Facebook and Instagram did the job and definitely made our Japan trip easy. Negotiating tiny streets and finding restaurants in Tokyo and Kyoto would have been impossible without Google Maps. This is a must have item for Japan travel.

Simple, peace of mind
I ordered a sim card for a trip to Europe so I could use GPS on my phone and stay connected when on the road. Once I landed in London I popped the card in and it worked straight away no issues. with 12Gb of data and plenty of calls and texts I was not worried about running out and it was one less thing to worry about sorting on arrival. I used this card in Portugal and Spain and the swap over between Countries was seamless
Great service great value, I will definitely use again in the future
Made our trip easy
It was wonderful to have the opportunity to stop on any street and use the phone to find our way in every city, to find information about things we need to know, to make a phone call to friends and businesses. It gave us a confidence and security in every place in USA and even on some islands when we stopped in ports during our cruise. I would highly recommend to every traveller to USA to have it.
I don't bother with hotel wifi anymore
I've bought a number of SIMs from SIM-corner and they're fantastic. I've opted for high-capacity cards with fast 4G connectivity. I use them for keeping in touch with the world (skyping family, tracking news etc), for uploading all my photos to the cloud as I go (since sooner or later your SD card will fail or get lost) and for finding my way around (ie GPS, googlemaps etc). When you look at what you pay for other parts of a trip (tickets, hotels, car-hire) - its such a small investment that can make an enormous difference if you need that c...onnectivity. And you will absolutely need it at some point. It just makes travelling so much easier and they're far cheaper than other ways of accessing data on the fly. I don't leave home without them.
No Problems - Outstanding
Had a two week trip the the US. Needed phone, text and data. I needed my phone to work everywhere and I needed data for pics, texts and most importantly to use my phone as my GPS while driving. The alternative was $280 worth of roaming from my Aussie provider. My SIM was a fraction of that. Installed instantly on arrival and worked faultlessly. No problems and that's outstanding.
I usually don't do reviews but this product deserves my review. Purchaed 2 Sims for use in England, Wales. France, Italy, Austria, Poland and Germany. Never a problem. What an excellent product. Don't think there was ever a moment (me google maps and the wife facebook) when we couldn't connect to the internet. Well done Sim Corner
Don't travel without it!
Travelling recently to Europe for a month and wanting to stay in touch with family and friends at home, sharing photos and facetiming, I was dreading the Roaming costs of my provider, expecting a bill of $1k at least. Finding these SIMS was heaven-sent, and I bought two at 20G - one for myself and one for hubbie. [I'd rather use my money having a good time and buying souvenirs and gifts.] Easy to set up, we used them for the trip, great access everywhere, no problems with facetiming home in all countries. Just brilliant, and all for one very low cost! Saved us so much money! About to fly to Thailand and already on the site seeking a Thai SIM to avoid roaming costs. If you're an Aussie, this is a must-buy before travelling.
remove the stress of the internet while overseas
Once I arrived in Poland i took out my existing Australian sim and inserted the Europe 12 Gig sim i had purchase from Sim Centre.
It worked beautifully. In conjunction with whatsapp i could phone anyone in Australia. I was able to use the internet and listen to the NRL grand final as well as the Sydney radio stations that i normally listen too.
I cant recommend it highly enough.
Questions & Answers
What do you do with the sim card when finish and can you transfer the data etc to my own number or my number to the sim card
Unfortunately, no you can't transfer unused data to you phone. I was aware the terms and conditions before I bought the SIM so there were no surprises. You can visit their website. It has all the information that may help you decide. The SIM that I bought was good for 30D and I was only in Europe for 15 days so I had more than enough data.
Exactly what Sarah said! If you get the 30 day card it will expire after 30 days and if you only travel for 2 weeks then you can’t use the remaining days in Australia. Still worth it though!
