Off to Poland? You've probably got a to-do list that you're checking off leading up to your travels, but one of the things that you'll want to make sure you have done is an international SIM card for your travel. This will save you hundreds, if not thousands in out-of-country roaming charges. Not only that, but it'll make sure you have fast, 4G LTE speeds while you're in Poland, too.
Not sure what to pick up for your travels in Poland? Here are five of our favorite choices:
Orange's own Holiday SIM comes up first on our countdown, and is one of the best choices that you can use for your time in the country of Poland The SIM card will bring you reliable and quick 4G LTE data in Poland, and anywhere else you want to go in Europe. On top of that, data is extremely affordable, much more so than in, say, the United States or Canada.
Additionally, 10GB of data, two hours of talk time, and then another 1,000 SMS messages to use in addition to your data is included with your package. In addition, the SIM is supposed to last 14 days, but you can add additional days, buy more data, or more text and talk time as needed.
UK Europe ThreeUK SIM Card
ThreeUK actually offers a SIM card that has a lot of similarities to the Orange Holiday SIM. It gives you a whole 12GB of data to use, and then 3000 minutes in talk time and 3000 messages. With all of that talk and text time in addition to data, you won't have to rely on social platforms like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger for calling and text features. And when you're getting low, ThreeUK makes it easy to top off when you need more.
It's worth noting that ThreeUK only lets you use this SIM card in phone. Additionally, you can't use the data for video streaming, nor tethering or hotspot features.
Mobal Europe Plus SIM
Up second, we have the Mobal Europe Plus SIM. With your purchased SIM card, you get a free 1GB of data,, but after that's used up, you'll have to pay for each 1GB you want to use. Data, talk and text are all purchased separately, with the latter two sitting at 30¢ per minute.Rates are cheaper when calling to Canada or the US, but for the most part, you're going to see that 30 cent per minute price.
The downside is that Mobal has a pretty unique payment setup -- your credit or debit card is attached directly to your SIM card, and is automatically billed at the ending of the period for what you used. That can add up to be pretty expensive the way the price breakdown is, but still cheaper than roaming.
Internet with legs Trio
ThreeUK has another SIM card worth checking out. Unlike the previous ThreeUK card, the Internet with legs Trio doesn't haveany calling or text features here. That's because it's a data-only SIM, requiring you to rely on platforms like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp to communicate with friends and family members.
The SIM card only works on unlocked GSM phones as well. However, you do get a whole 3GB of data to use while in Poland, and you can top off your data as needed.
Keepgo Global Lifetime SIM Card
Keepgo is up next, offering up their Global Lifetime SIM card for travel. It's pretty similar to the Mobal, is still yet a much better option than out of country roaming charges. The payment method and price breakdown is a whole lot better, however. The SIM card comes with 1GB of data right out of the gate, but then you pay per 1GB afterwards.
There are plenty of different options for international travel, but these five are some of the best that you can buy today for traveling to Poland. They'll provide you with plenty of speed, with most working at 4G LTE speeds. However, the Orange Holiday SIM is our favorite, offering you talk, text, and data. That means you don't have to rely on Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or another for your communication, and can use your phone's basic Phone and Messaging functions.
