Can I change my shipping address after placing an order?
If you need to change your shipping address, reach out to our customer support team as soon as possible. Just keep in mind that we can't guarantee changes to shipping addresses once an order has been placed.
How do I track my order?
Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a confirmation email with tracking information. You can use this information to track your package on the carrier's website.
Step 1. Land in one of the countries listed
What if I need help?
Our SIMs generally have no issues, however, nothing is a guarantee. Sometimes SIMs have technical issues that need troubleshooting.
If you land and your SIM does not work as expected then you need to follow these steps:
Step 1. Ensure you have followed all steps in your SIMs digital PDF guide.
Step 2. Reach out to us for support via Facebook live chat or email us at email@example.com
Step 3. If our technical support cannot resolve your issue you will be entitled to our Money Back Guarantee and we will help you find a local option for the rest of your trip.
How can I make calls & texts?
To dial a European number, simply dial: Country code -> Mobile number
For example: If you wanted to dial the UK number 0712345678;
You would dial +44712345678.
To find the right country code, simply Google: 'country codes'
You can keep track of your usage by registering a 'My3' account with ThreeUK. Instructions are included in your PDF guide.
This SIM can only be recharged in the UK or with a UK credit card.
If you need more data or a longer duration, you will need to purchase multiple SIM cards and swap them out as you go. If you want more than 1 SIM card, you can checkout with the code: MULTISIM10 for 10% off your order.
How do I find my new number?
You can find your mobile number when the SIM is inserted & active by going to your contacts and finding: My Number.
12GB of data over 30 days is HEAPS of data.
If you are planning on streaming videos frequently or downloading large files, then you may want to grab a second SIM card for more data.
Will my SIM work across all of Europe?
Our Europe SIMs work across 71 countries, which you can see listed here. Like your local SIM back home, the exact reach of the SIM depends on the local network coverage. We make sure we source our products from the biggest and best Telcos available to get you guys the best deals possible, but if you’re in a remote location, there might not be any nearby towers for reception.
If you’re concerned about not having reception in a particular location, it’s best to enquire with 3 UK about their exact reach.
Needless to say - the SIM will not work if you're in a country that isn't listed!
Can I use a UK SIM card in Europe?
Yes you can! Our SIM is from 3 UK, but allows you to roam freely between the 71 countries listed. This happens automatically as you cross over borders, and means you don't need to go through the hassle of buying new SIMs in each country.
With this SIM, if you're in the UK, you can text and call other UK numbers only.
If you’re in one of the other 70 European countries the SIM works in, you can text and make calls to any European or UK number - you'll just need to use the relevant country codes!
If someone calls you, they'll need to use the UK country code of +44.
Great SIM to be connected overseas
The SIM was great. I put the SIM in the phone as per instructions after landing in Rome and it worked straight away. I used it for navigating this wonderful city and it’s nooks and crannies, finding little treasures everywhere. Couldn’t do without it. Highly recommend SIMs Direct to anyone travelling overseas.
Best Bargain of the Holiday
Fantastic. Easy to activate. Easy movement country to country, UK to Italy to Spain to Gibraltar to Spain to Corsica (France). Definitely use a third time -China was first and equally positive experience
Saved us so many times!
My partner and I used a sim each for the 4 weeks we were away in Europe! We used to look for Wi-Fi when we traveled, never again! SimsDirect all the way moving forward. Nothing better than piece of mind in a foreign country. Thanks team.
Fantastic. I did my research, SimsDirect are by far the best value and service. Once I got on the plane, I inserted the new SIM card and when I got off the plane it was good to go, calls and Data, just like at home.. In the UK we were on the Three Network and it was flawless. It could not be easier.
Simple and convenient
I can’t stress how easy to use this was! I got off the plane in Greece, popped in my sim, did nothing for 30 mins, no details to enter or setup process, and was connected. I had data, texts and calls within Europe. I saved a webpage to show me where my usage was up to, I am in Europe for a month and so far it looks like 12GB is the perfect amount, I have been spamming family and friends on Instagram and using lots of google maps.
Great pics Akacia! I'm really glad we were able to help you start your holiday conveniently :) Reach out to us if you need anything else! - Aidan P.S These photos are going into the SimsDirect Facebook Group!
