2 Best Prepaid SIM Cards in Liechtenstein: Buying Guide

Liechtenstein – known for being a ski destination, its landscapes & castles.

It is also known for being such a small country that many travelers have not realized they drove in and out of the country already.

So, what can you do in Liechtenstein?

Well, not much compared to its neighbors, but it still has a few landmarks and attractions.

There are a few castles to witness, like the Vaduz Castle.

Let's not forget about the amazing hiking trails, like Augstenberg and Falknis.

And, of course, the many ski parks.

For a small country, Liechtenstein has quite some things to offer.

What you should be avoiding is getting an expensive international roaming bill because you forgot to turn off data roaming in Liechtenstein.

Roaming can be expensive, which is why I recommend local SIM cards, like a Liechtensteiner one, so that you can enjoy local rates.

The country has one mobile operator – FL1, but it does not offer prepaid services.

Switzerland was kind enough to link Liechtenstein's mobile phone system to its own.

Therefore, most Swiss mobile operators also work in Liechtenstein, including many Swiss Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs).

So, how much does a SIM card cost in Liechtenstein (but actually in Switzerland)?

You can get a Liechtensteiner (Swiss) SIM card for 10 CHF (11 USD) from Salt Mobile and 19.90 CHF (21.70 USD) from Swisscom in their stores. SIM cards are also sold at Zurich Airport (ZRH – in Switzerland).

Special note for those from Ukraine: be sure to ask about special benefits for Ukrainians. Many mobile operators around Europe have waived fees for you or introduced exclusive plans, including free calls back to Ukraine. Слава Україні! 🇺🇦

Normally, I would recommend getting a SIM card from a neighboring country because of free European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) roaming.

Unlike its neighbor Switzerland, Liechtenstein is part of the EU/EEA, meaning you can roam for free in the country if you have an EU/EEA SIM card.

But be careful – your phone needs to connect to the Liechtenstein network of, for example, Swisscom or Salt Mobile instead of the Swiss one.

Else… well… you will get a surprise roaming bill.

But after reading this guide, you will not make this mistake 😁.

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Liechtenstein. Let's do this.

Can You Buy a SIM Card in Liechtenstein?

Anyone 16 years or older living in or visiting Liechtenstein can buy a Liechtensteiner (Swiss) SIM card from Swisscom, Salt Mobile & many MVNO with no restrictions.

You do have to comply with the SIM card registration regulations.

Moreover, you need a phone that supports the frequencies used in the country (preferably all of them to have the most optimal experience while in Liechtenstein (and Switzerland)).

Furthermore, you need to have a SIM-lock-free device.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Liechtenstein?

You can get a Liechtensteiner (Swiss) SIM card in Swisscom and Salt Mobile stores (in Switzerland). They are also available at Zurich Airport (ZRH).

You can expect to pay the following for Liechtensteiner SIM cards:

  • Swisscom: 19.90 CHF
  • Salt Mobile “Liechtenstein” (Switzerland): 10 CHF
  • MVNOs (like Lycamobile “Liechtenstein” (Switzerland)): being added later

For up-to-date CHF:your currency (let's say EUR) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

TIP: Check out my SIM card prices lookup tool for a detailed overview of SIM card starter pack benefits (for Liechtensteiner SIM cards and SIM cards worldwide).

Can You Use Your Phone in Liechtenstein?

Liechtenstein (and Switzerland) uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in Liechtenstein. If your phone has a SIM card slot, then it supports GSMA (99% of the phones do support GSM nowadays).

Traditional European frequencies are used in Liechtenstein, which are mostly used in ITU Regions 1 and 3 (Africa, Asia (including the Middle East), Europe & Oceania).

The Americas (North-, Central– & South America + the Caribbean – ITU Region 2) use American frequencies, which differ from the European ones.

ITU Regions Map

If you bought your phone in Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania (ITU regions 1 and 3), you should not experience any issues with using your phone in Liechtenstein.

If you purchased your phone in the Americas (ITU Region 2) and have a low/medium-end device (without Tri-Band or Quad-Band) support, then there is a possibility you cannot use your phone when in Liechtenstein or can only use slower networks (3G or 2G).

If you have a medium/high-end device with Tri-Band or Quad-Band support, you can use your phone in Liechtenstein (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE and 5G NR.

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein has two mobile operators and various Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs – being added later – all from Switzerland) offering prepaid services:

The following frequencies are used in Liechtenstein:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz (Swisscom has no 2G network anymore)
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 700 MHz (Band 28), 800 MHz (Band 20), 900 MHz (Band 8), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28), 2100 MHz (n1) & 3500 MHz (n78)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Liechtenstein, check out this page by Will My Phone Work (may be outdated or inaccurate at times).

Again, make sure your phone is unlocked. Otherwise, you will not be able to use any SIM card except the one from your home operator (meaning you have to roam internationally or buy another unlocked phone that does support the frequencies listed above).

If you want to learn how international roaming works, this guide explains it in-depth. If you wonder why it is often so expensive to roam, this article explains the hidden reason they do not want you to know.

VoLTE & VoWiFi in Liechtenstein

Both VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G) – also known as HD Voice) and VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi – also known as WiFi calling) are available in Liechtenstein. All Liechtensteiner (Swiss) mobile operators offer both services.

5G NR in Liechtenstein

Commercial 5G NR has been available in Liechtenstein (Switzerland) since March 2019. It is available on the Swisscom and Salt Mobile networks. Swisscom prepaid customers can use 5G NR if they buy a booster for 5 CHF). Salt Mobile does not offer 5G NR to prepaid customers yet – the same counts for the MVNOs.

Best SIM Card in Liechtenstein

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Liechtenstein, I recommend going with Swisscom. It is, overall, the best mobile operator in Switzerland (and Liechtenstein, for that matter) with the best coverage and speeds in Liechtenstein for literal years.

Best eSIM in Liechtenstein

Unfortunately, none of the mobile operators offer eSIM to prepaid customers in Liechtenstein (and Switzerland) yet.

However, you can get the Liechtenstein (Lie Mobile) eSIM from Airalo.

You have these three options:

Or you can get Liechtenstein eSIMs from Nomad.

Liechtenstein eSIMs Nomad

Use code ADU123 for the best deals available when getting Nomad eSIMs (on the site or their apps).

For Airalo eSIMs, the links above will automatically get you the Phone Travel Wiz exclusive offers available – a code is not necessary.

With these eSIMs, you can skip Liechtenstein's SIM card registration scheme entirely and use it immediately upon arriving in Liechtenstein!

TIP: Check out my eSIM lookup tool for an overview of local mobile operators offering eSIMs to prepaid customers and travel eSIMs I use and love (for eSIMs in Liechtenstein and eSIMs worldwide).

If you plan on visiting other neighboring European nations, consider the Eurolink eSIM (six variants: 1 GB/7 days, 3 GB/30 days, 5 GB/30 days, 10 GB/30 days, 50 GB/90 days & 100 GB/180 days) in Liechtenstein and these other countries:

With the Eurolink eSIM, you can save a lot of money by skipping the initial SIM card costs per country you visit – averaging 6 USD/country in Europe!

Not staying in just Europe? Get the Discover Global eSIM with 1 GB of data (7 days – multiple top-ups available) for Liechtenstein and these other countries:

Best International/Travel SIM Card for Liechtenstein

If you want to buy the best international/travel SIM card for Liechtenstein, I recommend going with SimCorner's Europe SIM cards that covers Europe (mainly the European Union) and parts Asia, Central America & South America – all in one SIM card.

SIM Card Registration in Liechtenstein

SIM card registration with your passport information is required in Liechtenstein. It will be done at the point of purchase.

EU Roaming in Liechtenstein

European Union (EU) & European Economic Area (EEA)

Liechtenstein is part of the European Economic Area (EEA) but not part of the European Union (EU).

While the difference between the EU and EEA is not too relevant for this guide, you need to know is that since June 2017, those with EU/EEA SIM cards can roam for free in other EU/EEA nations, including Liechtenstein.

This means that, in the majority of cases, you do not need to purchase a Liechtensteiner SIM card if you already have an EU/EEA SIM card because you can roam without additional costs.

However, conditions do apply. Mobile operators in some countries may impose a roaming Fair Use Policy (FUP).

Be careful: Swisscom and Salt Mobile Switzerland are active in Liechtenstein and Switzerland – Switzerland is not in the EU/EEA. Select Liechtenstein Telecom when roaming in Liechtenstein.

If your phone does not accept Liechtenstein Telecom (no roaming agreement), connect to the correct Swisscom (FL) or Salt (Mobile FL) antennas.

In countries where local mobile data rates are extremely low (such as in the Baltics and Nordics), mobile operators may still charge you for roaming in the EU/EEA.

Be sure to head over to the international roaming page to learn whether your mobile operator offers free roaming while in Liechtenstein or if restrictions apply.

Roaming in the EU with Liechtensteiner SIM Cards

Liechtenstein (Switzerland) and the Liechtensteiner (Swiss) mobile operators have not adopted the roam like at home regulations because Switzerland is not in the EU/EEA.

As discussed earlier, Liechtenstein uses Switzerland‘s telecommunications system.

Liechtenstein Telecom and 7acht are local mobile operators, but they do not offer prepaid services in the country.

Liechtenstein is in the EEA, so why not buy a SIM card in Liechtenstein itself so that you can roam for free in Liechtenstein?

That is because all SIM cards sold in Liechtenstein, which are not many because they can mainly be bought in Switzerland only, are considered Swiss and do not have to adhere to EU roaming regulations.

Lycamobile Switzerland is, from what I know so far, the only Swiss Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) offering free data roaming in the EU/EEA – even if you buy its SIM card in Liechtenstein.

If you want to roam for free in the EU/EEA, go with Lycamobile Switzerland.

Else cross the Austria-Liechtenstein border and go from Schaan to Feldkirch (20 minutes by train and 35 minutes by train).

There, you can head to an A1 Austria, Drei (3) Austria, or Magenta Telekom store, get one of their SIM cards, and roam for free in other EU/EEA nations.

If that is worth the effort – you tell me. But it is an option.

In short – no free EU/EEA roaming with SIM cards bought in Liechtenstein or Switzerland, except for Lycamobile Switzerland.

Liechtenstein Mobile Internet Prices & Insights

Flag of Liechtenstein

The cost of mobile data has gone down significantly over the past few years.

The network quality has improved, you get faster speeds & the data allowances are more generous.

Are mobile data rates low in Liechtenstein?

The prices are not too bad.

The average price for 1 GB of data in Liechtenstein is 3.10 USD, around the European average of 2.50 USD. The world average is 4.07 USD.

So why did I add arrows to Switzerland too?

If you remember, the mobile phone systems of Liechtenstein are connected to Switzerland's.

And most Swiss mobile operators are active in Liechtenstein too.

However, Sunrise Switzerland and MVNOs using the Sunrise network do not.

Moreover, FL1, the local mobile operator, also exists, even though it does not offer prepaid services.

Hence, Liechtenstein's average is lower than Switzerland's.

Anyway, Cable.co.uk split Europe into three territories: Western Europe, Eastern Europe & the Baltics.

The Western European average cost of 1 GB of data, using Cable.co.uk's definition, is 2.66 USD, which is just slightly more than the overall European average.

In terms of network speeds in Liechtenstein, you should refer to Switzerland's.

But I can already tell you again that Swisscom “Liechtenstein” has the best 4G/LTE network in terms of overall performance and speed.

With reasonable to high SIM card prices, extensive nationwide coverage, incredible mobile download speeds, and high mobile data rates, you should have a smooth network experience in Liechtenstein.

Currency in Liechtenstein

10 Swiss Franc Bank Note
© Swiss National Bank/Schweizerische Nationalbank

Liechtenstein uses the Swiss Franc with the symbol CHF (which will be used throughout this guide).

However, prices are often listed as Fr. For example, 25 CHF = Fr. 25.

For reference, below are some exchange rates between CHF and USD (US Dollars):

  • 1 CHF = 1.10 USD
  • 10 CHF = 10.90 USD
  • 100 CHF = 108.80 USD

For up-to-date CHF:your currency (let's say Euro) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

If your credit/debit card charges you foreign exchange fees, get yourself a Wise Borderless Account and Debit Card.

Their fees are MUCH lower than banks, and credit card companies charge you (and Wise is transparent about their fees, unlike banks).

I have saved literal THOUSANDS of Euros, my main currency, when using Wise abroad when traveling compared to my debit and credit cards. Open a Wise account FREE!

Liechtensteiner Prepaid SIM Cards

  • Background information
  • Mobile coverage
  • SIM card types, prices & availability
  • Recharge / top-up information
  • Combo plans, data plans & special packs (such as social media packs)

With that being said, let’s see what Liechtenstein has to offer to us.


Swisscom “Liechtenstein”

Swisscom Liechtenstein & Switzerland Logo

Swisscom “Liechtenstein” is the largest mobile operator in Switzerland and also in Liechtenstein.

Hence, it is also the largest mobile operator in Liechtenstein.

It is a mostly state-owned company (51%) with the best overall performance in Switzerland.

And who says state-owned companies always have to be bad 🤪.

And in this case, it is a foreign state-owned company 🤯.

While Swisscom covers the whole of Liechtenstein, you may not get the (amazing) performance you would get in, let's say, Zurich.

Swisscom uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: N/A – shut down for 4G/LTE and 5G NR refarming
  • 3G: 900 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 700 MHz (Band 28), 800 MHz (Band 20), 900 MHz (Band 8), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28), 2100 MHz (n1) & 3500 MHz (n78)
  • VoLTE: Yes
  • VoWiFi: Yes

Other Ways to Stay Connected When Traveling in Liechtenstein

The cheapest way to get online in Liechtenstein is to get a SIM card from one of the mobile operators unless you have a EU/EEA SIM card and can roam for free in Liechtenstein.

However, local SIM cards are not your only method of staying online when abroad.

Below are some other options to consider.

International Roaming

Roaming is the most convenient way to stay connected.

You do not have to buy a new SIM card, and people at home can easily reach you on your current phone number.

However, roaming has many downsides as well. It can be insanely expensive.

Learn more about roaming.

International/Travel SIM Cards

International SIM cards or travel SIM cards are SIM cards made for travelers.

The rates charged are often lower than international roaming, but they are almost always higher than what local mobile operators will charge you.

Get to know more about international and travel SIM cards.

Mobile Hotspots (Pocket WIFI)

Mobile hotspots, or pocket WIFI, are small devices that connect to the local mobile operators of the country you are visiting.

Mobile hotspots are ideal for families or those traveling in a large group, as they allow you to connect multiple devices to one hotspot without the need of each traveler having to buy a SIM card.

You can either buy a mobile hotspot or rent one.

Free WIFI Networks

Nothing beats free, right? Paying nothing to stay connected may be the best option.

Until you remember that free hotspots are not available everywhere (especially when on the move) and that free connections are often extremely slow.

Just make sure to protect your internet traffic with a VPN when connected to open WIFI connections. It is worth it.


The Preferred Way to Stay Connected When Traveling in Liechtenstein

Getting a SIM card from Swisscom would do you well when considering a Liechtensteiner SIM card.
