SIM Cards in Serbia: The Best Prepaid Plans | 2024 Guide

Serbia – known for its culture, tasty cuisine, and nightlife.

Just like other Western Balkans nations, Serbia is rich in history.

From the Tesla Museum in Belgrade to the Niš Fortress in Niš.

Perhaps you are more into nature and would rather see the mountain and parks in Tara.

Or if you are a party-goer, you may just want to stay in Belgrade and live every night like it is your last one – just make sure they are not literally your last night.

As you can see, there is no reason to be bored. You better make your friends jealous by sharing your Serbia experiences online.

The thing is, international roaming can be expensive. Serbia is an inexpensive travel destination, so it would be a shame to make your trip expensive because you felt the need to roam.

Luckily, you do not have to. You can get a local SIM card, like a Serbian one, and enjoy local rates. This method is almost always cheaper than international roaming.

And the best part – SIM cards are inexpensive in Serbia.

You can get a Serbian SIM card for 300 RSD (2.75 USD) from MTS and A1 in their stores or from resellers, like convenience stores and kiosks. SIM cards are also sold at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport (BEG).

Super cheap, right!? That is one of the pros of visiting the Balkan states – it is so cheap compared to Western Europe. Or even worse – Northern Europe.

But the four mobile operators have much more to offer, which I will tell you all about in this guide.

To make your SIM card selection even better, I will also give you some golden nuggets nobody else talks about.

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

What is the Best SIM Card in Serbia?

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Serbia, I recommend going with Yettel (formerly Telenor) or A1. Both mobile operators have the best coverage throughout the country. A1 has the fastest speeds. Consider MTS for generous allowances with its tourist SIM cards.

So, who are all these mobile operators and what options are available for you?

Serbia has three mobile operators offering prepaid services easily accessible to tourists:

  • MTS Serbia (Srbija)
  • Yettel Serbia (Srbija – formerly Telenor Serbia/Srbija)
  • A1 Serbia (Srbija)

Where Can You Buy a Serbian SIM Card (+Costs)?

You can get a Serbian SIM card in MTS, Yettel (formerly Telenor), A1 stores. Resellers, like post offices, newsstands & grocery stores, also sell SIM cards. Some Serbian airports sell (tourist) SIM cards (at inflated prices).

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

  • MTS Serbia: 300 RSD
  • Yettel Serbia (formerly Telenor Serbia): 400 RSD & 600 RSD
  • A1 Serbia: 400 RSD

The following Serbian mobile operators also have SIM cards targeting tourists:

  • MTS Serbia: 600 RSD (Turist Net) & 1800 RSD (Super Turist SIM)
  • Yettel Serbia (formerly Telenor Serbia): 545 RSD
  • A1 Serbia: 400 RSD (Hello Stranger)

Note that SIM cards can be more expensive than those listed above when purchased at an airport.

  • 1 RSD = 0.090 USD
  • 10 RSD = 0.90 USD
  • 100 RSD = 0.90 USD
  • 1000 RSD = 9.15 USD
  • 10 000 RSD = 91.40 USD

(Travel) eSIMs for Serbia

In recent years, (travel) eSIMs have become extremely popular.

Especially after Apple made iPhones (14- & 15 series) sold in the United States eSIM-only, forcing its users to use eSIMs – even when abroad.

As a result, the adoption of eSIM technology by mobile operators worldwide rose impressively quickly.

Currently, Yettel (formerly Telenor) and Globatel offer eSIMs to prepaid customers.

But if you purchase an eSIM from any of these mobile operators, you must comply with Serbia's SIM card registration regulations.

Suppose you do not wish to do so for privacy reasons (for example) or want to be connected immediately without paying for an overpriced SIM card (or eSIM) sold at a Serbian airport. In that case, you may consider getting a travel eSIM for Serbia.

In my Serbia eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide (even in Serbia).

Buying an eSIM for Serbia Guide (logos of Holafly, Nomad, Eurolink, Discover+, Serbia Mobile, Alosim & Airalo)

Surprisingly, travel eSIMs can be cheaper than a Serbian SIM card or eSIM in specific scenarios.

Moreover, Europe-wide and global eSIM options are also available at competitive prices (without having to deal with expensive international roaming rates).

In this Serbia SIM card buying guide (the one you are reading), I will stick to the local SIM cards and eSIM, but you can read my Serbia eSIM buying guide for more information about travel eSIMs covering the country.

But here is a quick overview already + applicable discount codes if you are interested in purchasing a travel eSIM for Serbia:

Here are some discount codes to sweeten the deal:

  • Airalo: NEWMAY15 for 15% off (if you have never bought an Airalo eSIM before). Otherwise, AIRALOMAY10 for 10% off (for existing users) – only the first 3000 users can redeem either discount code)
  • Alosim: PTW for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Holafly: PHONETRAVELWIZ for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Nomad: ADU123 for 3 USD off (on your first-ever Nomad order only)

Once again, check out my Serbia eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.

Buying an eSIM for Serbia Guide (logos of Holafly, Nomad, Eurolink, Discover+, Serbia Mobile, Alosim & Airalo)

The eSIM guide is as comprehensive as this SIM card buying guide, but it solely focuses on travel eSIMs (while the guide you are reading focuses on local SIM cards and eSIMs for prepaid users (where applicable).

MTS Serbia (Srbija/Србија) by Telekom Srbija is the largest mobile operator in Serbia.

It used to be the best option. However, its competitors have caught up on coverage and speed.

It still does have a wide range of plans to choose from.

Telekom Srbija is also active in Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Montenegro as m:tel.

MTS uses the following frequencies:

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

While MTS does have eSIMs, they are (currently) not offered to prepaid customers.

You can consider getting a travel eSIM for Serbia, which can, in specific scenarios, be cheaper than getting a SIM card from MTS.

Especially if you get a Europe-wide eSIM (for when you visit at least two or more supported European countries) or a global eSIM (for frequent travelers visiting multiple continents).

In my Serbia eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

But I will introduce them here quickly:

  • Airalo: Serbia Mobile (Serbia only), Eurolink (39 countries in Europe) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Serbia & Europe (32 countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Serbia – all variants in both options include unlimited data + up to 120 Europe-wide calls – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Serbia, Europe (30 or 35 countries, depending on the variant) & Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

Once again, check out my Serbia eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.

Yettel Logo

Yettel Serbia, just Yettel and formerly Telenor, is the second-largest mobile operator in Serbia.

In March 2022, the PPF Group that owned the Telenor brand in Bulgaria, Hungary & Serbia decided to change the brand name to Yettel.

Yettel uses the following frequencies:

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

Yettel SIM cards may also sold at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport (BEG).

When Yettel was still Telenor, it used to sell SIM cards at the airport (at least, that was before the pandemic). I am not sure if this is still the case. Let me know.

It is also possible to get a Yettel eSIM for the same price as a regular SIM card.

You may want to get a travel eSIM for Serbia, which can be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Yettel (in some cases).

Especially when getting a Europe-wide eSIM if you do not stay in just Serbia or a global eSIM valid for up to a year if you want one eSIM to work practically worldwide.

My Serbia eSIM buying guide analyzes various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

Here is a quick introduction to them:

  • Airalo: Serbia Mobile (Serbia only), Eurolink (39 countries in Europe) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + call and text feature) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Serbia & Europe (32 countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Serbia – these eSIMs have unlimited data + calling feature – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Serbia, Europe (up to 35 countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

Especially if you get a Europe-wide eSIM or a global eSIM.

I discuss various eSIM options of eSIM providers for Serbia in my Serbia eSIM buying guide, which are:

  • Airalo: Serbia Mobile (Serbia only), Eurolink (39 countries in Europe) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + minutes and SMS) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
