If you plan on visiting Germany any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Germany SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.

The prepaid SIM card for Germany is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Germany cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Germany cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the Germans themselves use—the local German cell phone system. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll enjoy making calls within Germany for as low as $0.41 US per minute and receiving FREE incoming calls. The prepaid feature gives you complete control over your costs, and with our low domestic and international calling rates, having a cell phone in Germany is affordable for all. You’ll save even more with the 10 second billing intervals that apply after the first minute of every call. Access to customer service from your Germany cellular phone is available 24 hour a day, so you’ll always have assistance with any unexpected issues or questions about your calls. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.

Your Germany SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 1800 frequency. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.
