International roaming was going to be very expensive so I looked at my alternatives; I chose this SIM after reading many positive reviews and the fact that it had a built-in VPN (saving me time, money and one less step). I changed my SIM on the first day in China and it worked straight away. It was a data only SIM and found for my 28 days the 3GB lasted and I still had data remaining. The VPN meant I could use google internet and check my gmail and whatsapp. The fact that the SIM is data only was fine as nearly all of China and Tibet communicat...e via WeChat so i communicated this way throughout my holiday; via text as well as video calls, so not having a phone number was not an inconvenience. I had no issue with the card and would gladly recommend this SIM to anyone travelling to China.
Invaluable Product for Overseas Travel
The sim card was great, very easy to implement and use. Delivery on purchase was fast. Worked as soon as I put it in my phone. Made loads of WhatsApp calls back to Australia from both Greece and Germany. Was great for looking up hotels and restaurants also google maps when we got hopelessly lost. The bonus was it also worked in Singapore on the way home. Thoroughly recommend this product and will be buying again for next trip. Thanks SimsDirect
It was terrific. signal coverage was very good all over Scotland, city areas of Scandinavia and all over France.
It allowed me access to family at home which was very useful as we had a very unwell family member.
Very handy when booking accommodation and using Google maps etc.
Excellent value for money
Reliable Service and Easy SIM Setup
I ordered the Asia SIM Card 4GB Data-Only 15 Days SIM. It arrived quickly and setup was a breeze. I inserted it on my phone while waiting for my flight to depart from Melbourne. When I turned on my phone again upon arriving at my destination, it was already working!! Easy peasy! Same thing when I arrived in Taiwan the next day. Will definitely get another SIM from SIMSDirect for my next holidays.
Sims Direct are awesome
This was the best decision we ever made phone wise. We bought it before we left Australia. The sim worked immediately without any hassle at all. The data lasted us the 3 and a 1/2 weeks we were away. We would highly recommend this to anyone travelling and not wanting to pay huge Global Roaming charges. We still have data left and did not have to worry about how long it would last. LOVE IT thank you Sims Direct for making our holiday complete
Awesome product and amazing service
Bought a pair of sims for the US & Canada and worked like a charm. Had
a bit of technical issues during the trip but they were easily reachable and responsive despite the time difference.
Just bought a pair of sims for Europe for early next year as a testament on how we trust their excellent products and will continue to do so in our future international trips.
UK Holiday - London, Scotland & Ireland
Purchased 2 sims as we were away for more than 30 days. Both sims were easy to activate, within less than 5 mins of inserting into phone. Used extensively for google maps, travelled around 5k kms and had no problems with reception overall. Also able to use to make calls within UK & Ireland. Certainly made the holiday a lot less stressful, best thing I purchased.
Good price, quick delivery and easy to use!
This made life so easy. We purchased our sims before leaving Australia and had them ready to go as soon as we landed in NZ. The instructions were clear and simple and we had no issues with the sim/set up. The sims came in the post quickly which was awesome, and it was nice knowing we didn’t have to hunt around for a sim once we got to New Zealand.
Brilliant. Dont go overseas without one.
First time using a pre paid sim after using my normal providers travel pack. i was most impressed. It was so much cheaper than the travel pack and was more than enough for my needs while I was overseas. It was easy to use, reliable and came with easy to use instructions. I got I think either the 10 or 12GB sim card and had plenty left when I got home. I used it mainly for Google Maps and Translate but seeing I left my ipad at home I was using it quite a bit more than I thought. I will now always get a SimsDirect product when I go overseas. They are fantastic.
Perfect for our holiday! Was able to use immediately upon inserting - which made communication with home easy. Worked well during our Singapore stopover as well as in the UK/Europe. I bought 4 so that all our travelling party could keep in touch. Unfortunately one traveller had a ‘locked’ phone - so a good thing to check! Sims Direct provided excellent communication and service. Will certainly use again and thoroughly recommend.
How good were these SIMs!
We travelled in Bulgaria and Switzerland over a four week period and the SIMs for our two phones were just so convenient. We had an initial issue activating the SIM on one of our phones but after making an enquiry to SimsDirect and getting their practical advice we were able to get that phone up and running without further problems. As we were doing a cycling tour in these two countries it was especially helpful to have mobile data available while we were out on the backroads and byways throughout the day, particularly for using google maps and for locating nearby services that we needed. We would definitely use SimsDirect again for future trips.
Worked ok in Italy
Used exclusively in Italy - was pretty good for coverage in Rome - not too good in Florence or Venice and some smaller tourist towns in Cinque Terra and Amalfi. Regularly had to turn phone on and off again to get card to start working again. Overall - was convenient to order and easy to use - just dramas with reception via there partner Wind
SIM card arrived in the mail in plenty of time before we left. Easily installed. Clear instructions, no problems with phone calls. We had 12g for $50 UK sim. Used it for social media, maps, general internet searching for info in UK regarding tourist information. Would use it again and highly recommend
Questions & Answers
We are heading to Russia, Baltic’s and down through Vienna Dubrovnik and Turkey in late April. Do these work there? If I purchase now can I wait to activate them when we leave Sydney on 21/4/2020?
I will be travelling in the UK and Europe for two months starting in late May. For my phone I will need two 30 day SIM cards. From the information I assume this means I will be using two separate phone numbers. Is there any way of simplifying this process? Thanks, Viki
Hi, I can see the issue that you may be facing but I'm not sure of the answer. Best to contact Vanessa or Supriti who are the owners of this company. They were terrific when I first purchased the sim cards and again when I had a question while on holiday in NZ. I'm sure they will answer your question asap when you send an email to them. I found the following info in an email they sent to me:
How do I top-up if I run out of data or days?
Most of our SIMs cannot be topped up or extended. We'd recommend grabbing an extra SIM to make sure you're covered for your full trip!
Happy and safe travels!
