If you plan on visiting Holland any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Holland 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 Holland is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Holland cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Holland cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the Hollish themselves use – the local Hollish 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, voicemail, data capabilities, 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 Holland is affordable for all. Access to customer service from your Holland 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 Holland SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 900 and 1800 frequencies. 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

To add airtime to your balance, you will need to purchase recharge cards, also called airtime vouchers. These vouchers are available at most convenience stores, tabac shops and petrol stations throughout Holland. They may be purchased at face value in denominations of 10 EUR or 20 EUR.

To charge the Netherlands SIM card with a recharge card simply:

  • Rub off the gray protective layer
  • A 14 digit number (voucher code) will be revealed
  • Dial 1224
  • Follow the instructions to load your voucher

Remember not to purchase another Holland SIM chip when your airtime is depleted.

Service Life

Each top-up extends the validity of the SIM card for 12 months from the date of the top-up. If you do not recharge your SIM card within that 12 month period, the Holland SIM card and phone number will expire and any remaining airtime will be forfeit.
