If you plan on visiting Hungary any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Hungary 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 Hungary is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Hungary cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Hungary cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the Hungarians themselves use—the local Hungarian 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 likewise enjoy the benefit of SMS text messaging, e-mail services, voicemail, and 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 Hungary is affordable for all. Access to customer service from your Hungary 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 Hungary SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 900 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.

Adding Airtime

Your Hungary SIM card will include an initial airtime balance to start you off, however to credit your Hungary SIM card with additional airtime, you will need to purchase recharge vouchers. These scratch cards may be purchased in 3600 HUF, 7200 HUF and 14,400 HUF denominations and are available at most convenience stores, tabac shops and petrol stations throughout Hungary.

Praktikum recharge vouchers are available at face value, so a 3600 HUF airtime voucher will cost you 3600 HUF and subsequently credit your Hungary SIM card that respective amount. To add the airtime voucher simply:

  • Rub off the grey protective layer
  • You will see the 14 digit code number
  • Call the Pannon number 171 from your own mobile phone
  • Follow the automated voice prompts


  • From the keypad of your mobile phone enter: *121*14-digit-recharge-code#

As soon as your balance hits 360 HUF ($1.65 USD), a text message will be sent to you as a reminder that your SIM card balance will soon run out. You will also hear a short warning tone during your conversation, depending on the type and setting of your phone. As soon as the balance on your SIM card is spent, the actual phone connection will be cut off and you will only be able to call 171.

Remember you do not need to purchase another Hungary SIM card when your airtime balance is depleted; you only need a recharge voucher!

Service Life

Your Hungary SIM card is valid for one year after the last recharge. If you fail to add airtime to your balance within a year, your SIM card and its respective phone number will be recycled and any remaining airtime will be forfeit. If you have a remaining balance and recharge your SIM within the 12 month period, the remaining balance will be added to the amount of the airtime recharge.
