Are you planning a vacation trip to Spain? Make sure you choose a prepaid internet to use the network unlimited and not overpay.
Spain It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. Holidays in the Canary Islands or Mallorca or visiting the continental part of the country attract more tourists from Poland every year. As you travel, you have probably already realized that access to the Internet is almost essential at any time. Do you want to immediately show an interesting photo on Facebook, order a taxi through the program, or maybe you have to go astray and create a new route map? Each of these activities requires the Internetand using our home card and the services of a Polish operator can be quite expensive.
Therefore, it is worth studying the offer before you leave and buy it immediately after your arrival prepaid SIM card at the local operator. This will allow us to use the Internet without compromising our budget and avoid potential coverage issues.
Spain is a member of the European Union. This means that you can use the service with a Polish SIM card walk like at home. As of June 15, 2017, all calls and SMS messages in the European Union are counted as domestic calls and messages. Probably each of us has a special internet package that we can use.
However, if we decide on a “safe” solution and decide to buy it local SIM card with data package? At the larger airports and train stations in Madrid and Barcelona, of course, we will find many stands offering ready-made cards, but in such places the prices can be extremely high. Therefore, it is worth taking a short walk to the service point of one of the operators or look for an electronics store. In Spain, every SIM card must be registeredtherefore it will be necessary presentation of passport when you buy.
Spain’s largest mobile network operators
There are four major mobile service providers in Spain:
Vodafone has its own offer Three variants of prepaid cards with prices starting from 10 euros. are valid for 28 days. We buy the cheapest option 300 minute calls national and international and 12 GB data transfer. For 20 euros we get unlimited calls and 35 GB of internet. As part of each option, we will use roaming.
We also found information about the Vodafone offer for tourists, but the operator’s website in Spain is only available in Castilian and Catalan, and we could not find any information about the special offer for tourists.
Prepaid cards are offered Movistar also valid for 28 days. Considering only the available gigabytes of data, Movistar’s offer is more profitable. For 20 euros we will get 75 GB of data transfer, but the number of minutes available for use will be reduced to only 150. By paying 10 euros, we will get 21 GB of internet, but only 40 minutes of talk.
The cheapest cards offered by Orange are now available 9.95 euros. We will receive within this amount 10 GB internet. The most expensive prepaid card costs 19.95 euros and will be available as part of this procurement 35 GB data. It is worth paying attention to Orange offers unlimited minutes and roaming in each of the available options.
Fortunately, the main page where we can get the card is in English.
Yoiqo is the smallest of the presented mobile operators. When deciding on their card, you should keep in mind that although we should not have a problem with coverage in large cities, we may encounter communication problems during a long journey away from civilization.
Their offer also seems the least profitable. For less than 10 euros, we get only 6 GB of internet and 200 minutes of calls. By paying 20 euros, we will get unlimited calls, but we will have only 16 GB of transfer, which, in the vernacular, will not break you.
Summary – Which offer to choose?
What should you think about the most when choosing an offer? If we are only interested in data transmission, this is an offer Movistar It will be perfect, even if it costs you a very limited number of minutes. Even if you choose the cheapest cards from Orange or Vodafone, we have the best options.. It is also worth noting that these two suppliers will provide us with coverage throughout the country.
I did not find any offers for tourists on the official websites of suppliers, but only Orange has an English language website.
