3 Best Prepaid SIM Cards in Montenegro: Buying Guide


Montenegro – literally meaning Black Mountain, is one of the (Western) Balkan nations in Europe.

Formerly part of Yugoslavia, Montenegro has a rich history like most former Yugoslav countries. It is also a very mountainous country, which is one reason why the country is named after a Mountain (Mount Lovćen).

From the Medieval old town in Kotor to beaches and casinos in Sveti Stefan, there is no reason to be bored when in Montenegro – it should not be possible. And you probably want to share your travel experience online.

And it is your right to show off on social media (that is what it is for, right?). However, you should know that international roaming can be expensive. If you do not watch out, you could go back home and face a roaming bill in the hundreds or thousands.

That is why you are better off buying local prepaid SIM cards to enjoy local rates and avoid (excessive) international roaming rates. Luckily, SIM cards are pretty cheap in Montenegro, and so is mobile data.

But what does cheap mean?

You can get a regular Montenegrin SIM card for 5 EUR (6.10 USD) from Crnogorski Telekom (Telekom Montenegro), Telenor & m:tel. During tourist seasons, the operators sell tourist SIM cards with 500 GB of data for as low as 10 EUR. 1 GB valid for 7 days will cost you at least 2.90 EUR (3.50 USD).

I am not sure if you can actually exhaust your 500 GB data allowance (if you can, I am proud of you!), but those are some exciting prospects. With cheap SIM cards and low data rates, you can share all you want without worrying about data costs.

But before you get yourself a Montenegrin SIM card, there are quite some things to be of aware about SIM cards in Montenegro. So…

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Croatia. Let's get started, shall we?

Can You Buy a SIM Card in Montenegro?

Anyone living or visiting Montenegro can buy a Montenegrin SIM card without restrictions.

Montenegrin SIM cards have to be registered as per the SIM card registration laws. Moreover, you need a phone that supports the frequencies used in Montenegro (even if you intend on roaming in Montenegro). Lastly, your phone needs to be SIM-lock-free (unlocked) if you want to use a local SIM card.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Montenegro?

You can get a Montenegrin SIM card in the official stores of Chrogorski Telekom (Telekom Montenegro), Telenor & m:tel or from authorized dealers. It is also possible to get a SIM card at Podgorica Airport/Aerodrom Podgorica & Tivat Airport/Aerodrom Tivat.

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

  • Crnogorski Telekom (Telekom Montenegro): 5 EUR (regular) & 9.90 EUR (data-only)
  • Telenor Montenegro: 5 EUR (regular) & 9.99 EUR (data-only)
  • m:tel Montenegro: 5 EUR (regular) & 10 EUR (data-only)

The following operators also have SIM cards targeting tourists:

  • Crnogorski Telekom (Telekom Montenegro): 10 EUR & 15 EUR
  • Telenor Montenegro: 10 EUR & 15 EUR
  • m:tel Montenegro: 10 EUR & 15 EUR

Can You Use Your Phone in Montenegro?

Montenegro uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in Montenegro. 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 Montenegro, which are mostly used in ITU Regions 1 & 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.

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

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 Montenegro 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 Montenegro (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE.

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Montenegro

Montenegro has three mobile network operators:

  • Crnogorski Telekom (Telekom Montenegro)
  • Telenor Montenegro
  • m:tel Montenegro

The following frequencies are used in Montenegro:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Montenegro, check out this pageOpens in a new tab. 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.

5G in Montenegro

5G is not available in Montenegro as of 2021. However, the national regulator (Agencija za elektronske komunikacije i poštansku djelatnost – EKIP) is considering to call the 5G actionOpens in a new tab. in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Once the auction has concluded, the operators can start rolling out 5G in 2022.

Best SIM Card in Montenegro

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Montenegro, I recommend going with Crnogorski Telekom. It has the best coverage and the fastest speeds in the country. Moreover, they offer a wide variety of plans.

SIM Card Registration in Montenegro

SIM card registration, with the use of your passport information, is mandatory in Montenegro. This will be done at the point of purchase.

Do note that although European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) -issued IDs are valid travel documents for travel in Montenegro, some travelers have reported that some shops require your passport to register your SIM card and refuse EU/EEA-issued IDs.

EU Roaming in Montenegro

Note that Montenegro is not part of the European Union (EU) nor European Economic Area (EEA), meaning that EU roaming regulations do not apply in Montenegro. As a result, you should not expect to roam for free if you have an EU/EEA SIM card while traveling in Montenegro.

Although some European operators may offer free (data) roaming while in Montenegro, most operators do not. Make sure to explore your roaming options before you roam.

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

Roaming in the EU with Montenegro SIM Cards

Montenegro is not part of the European Union (EU) nor the European Economic Area (EEA). Therefore, the EU roaming regulations do not apply to Montenegrin SIM cards. As a result, you should expect to roam for free in the EU/EEA with Montenegrin SIM cards.

However, Montenegro is a Candidate CountryOpens in a new tab. for joining the EU. The country also wants to join the EU/EEA common roaming zoneOpens in a new tab. in the near future. To do so, Montenegro and other Western Balkan countries have decided to cap roaming ratesOpens in a new tab. between July 2019 and July 2021. They will entirely scrap roaming rates within the region on the 1st of July 2021. This is because it is apparently a prerequisiteOpens in a new tab. to join the EU/EEA common roaming zone.

West Balkan Roaming

Those with SIM cards from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, North Macedonia, and Serbia can roam at reduced rates in Montenegro, and those with Montenegrin SIM cards can do the same in the aforementioned countries as part of the Roam Like At Home Plus (RLAH+) scheme agreed to by the six countries since July 2019.

Western Balkans Countries

Starting from the 1st of July 2019, roaming rates in Western Balkan states have gone down by up to 99%. From the 1st of July 2021, international roaming fees will be abolishedOpens in a new tab. in the West Balkans.

Montenegro Speeds, Internet Prices & Insights

Flag of Montenegro

Mobile data is cheap in Europe, especially Eastern Europe. This also applies to Montenegro.

But how cheap is cheap?

The average price for 1 GB of data in Montenegro is 2.12 USD, a bit less than the European average of 2.50 USD. The world average is 4.07 USD.

Cable.co.uk split Europe into three territories: Western Europe, Eastern Europe, and the Baltics. The Eastern European average cost of 1 GB of data, using Cable.co.uk's definition, is 2.25 USD.

.

Now that we know that mobile data is indeed affordable, how fast is mobile data in Montenegro?

Montenegro's average mobile download speed is around 46 Mbps.

.

In short, you should have a relatively fast and affordable network experience while in Montenegro.

Currency in Montenegro

Euro Bills (5, 10, 20, 50, 100 & 200 Euro)
PawełMMOpens in a new tab., CC BY-SA 3.0Opens in a new tab., via Wikimedia Commons

Montenegro uses the Euro with the symbol EUR (which will be used throughout this guide). However, prices are often listed as just . For example, 25 EUR = €25/25 €. For reference, below are some exchange rates between EUR and USD (US Dollars):

  • 1 EUR = 1.20 USD
  • 10 EUR = 12.15 USD
  • 100 EUR = 121.55 USD

For up-to-date EUR:USD exchange rates, search EUR to USD on Google, or replace USD with the currency you use.

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!

Other Ways to Stay Connected When Traveling in Montenegro

The cheapest way to get online in Montenegro is to get a SIM card from one of the three mobile operators. 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.

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 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 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.
