11 Best Prepaid SIM Cards in the Netherlands (NL): Buying Guide

The Netherlands – also referred to as Holland or by many as just Amsterdam, is known for its windmills, tulips & a certain green thing that is kinda legal there.

The country is also known for the vast number of cyclists, cheeses & beers.

There are complete Netherlands-dedicated blogs out there because there is so much to do in the country.

While I am Dutch myself and could have started such a blog myself… I am more interested in the world… especially SIM cards 🤓.

But I can assure you there is no reason to be bored in the Netherlands.

What certainly will not bore you is you dealing with an expensive international roaming bill because you forgot to turn data roaming off.

International roaming can be expensive, which is why I always recommend local SIM cards, like a Dutch one, so that you can enjoy local rates.

So, how much do SIM cards cost in the Netherlands?

You can get a Dutch SIM card for 4.99 EUR (5.30 USD) from KPN, between 5 EUR and 30 EUR (31.60 USD) from Vodafone & 10 EUR (10.50 USD) from T-Mobile in their stores and from resellers, like convenience stores and grocery stores. The MVNOs (AH Mobiel, ALDI Talk, Jumbo Mobiel, Kruidvat Mobiel, Lebara, L-Mobi Mobile, Lycamobile & Ortel Mobile) sell SIM cards between 5 EUR and 288 EUR (303 USD). SIM cards are also sold at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS) and Eindhoven Airport (EIN).

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! 🇺🇦

Worry not, the 288 EUR SIM card includes a plan valid for two years.

Imagine if that was the cost of only the SIM card 🤪.

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

Anyone living in or visiting the Netherlands can buy a Dutch SIM card from T-Mobile, KPN, Vodafone, AH Mobiel, ALDI Talk, Jumbo Mobiel, Kruidvat Mobiel, Lebara, L-Mobi Mobile, Lycamobile & Ortel Mobile with no restrictions.

Your phone has to support the frequencies used in the Netherlands.

Furthermore, your phone needs to be unlocked (SIM-lock free) to use a Dutch SIM card.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in the Netherlands?

You can get a Dutch SIM card in T-Mobile, KPN & Vodafone stores. Resellers, like post offices, newsstands & grocery stores, also sell SIM cards (especially for the MVNOs). They are also sold at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS) & Eindhoven Airport (EIN).

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

Can You Use Your Phone in the Netherlands?

The Netherlands uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in the Netherlands. 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 the Netherlands, 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
By Maximilian Dörrbecker (Chumwa) – Own work, using this file by Denelson83, CC BY-SA 2.5

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 the Netherlands.

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 the Netherlands 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 the Netherlands (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE (and soon 5G NR).

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in the Netherlands

The Netherlands has three mobile operators and eight Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) offering prepaid services:

  • T-Mobile Netherlands
  • KPN
  • Vodafone Netherlands
  • AH Mobiel (KPN MVNO)
  • ALDI TALK Netherlands (KPN MVNO)
  • Jumbo Mobiel (KPN MVNO)
  • Kruidvat Mobiel (KPN MVNO)
  • Lebara Netherlands (KPN MVNO)
  • L-Mobi Mobile Netherlands (KPN MVNO)
  • Lycamobile Netherlands (KPN MVNO)
  • Ortel Mobile Netherlands (KPN MVNO)

The following frequencies are used in the Netherlands:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz (not for T-Mobile)
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz (not for KPN & Vodafone)
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 900 MHz (Band 8), 1500 MHz (Band 32), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1) & 2600 MHz (Band 7 & Band 38)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28), 1800 MHz (n3) & 2100 MHz (n1) – all not for prepaid (yet)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in the Netherlands, 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 the Netherlands

Both VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G) – also known as HD Voice) and VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi – also known as WiFi calling) are available in the Netherlands. However, not all mobile operators offer both services to prepaid customers.

This means that your phone does not have to downgrade to 2G or 3G when making a call in the Netherlands (unlike mobile operators that do not support VoLTE).

The following mobile operators offer VoLTE and VoWiFi to prepaid customers in the Netherlands:

  • T-Mobile Netherlands

The following mobile operators offer VoWiFi only to prepaid customers in the Netherlands:

  • Vodafone Netherlands

The following mobile operators do not offer VoLTE nor VoWiFi to prepaid customers in the Netherlands:

  • KPN
  • AH Mobiel (KPN MVNO)
  • ALDI TALK Netherlands (KPN MVNO)
  • Jumbo Mobiel (KPN MVNO)
  • Kruidvat Mobiel (KPN MVNO)
  • Lebara Netherlands (KPN MVNO)
  • L-Mobi Mobile Netherlands (KPN MVNO)
  • Lycamobile Netherlands (KPN MVNO)
  • Ortel Mobile Netherlands (KPN MVNO)

VoWiFi is, as the name implies, calling on a WiFi connection as opposed to on a cellular network.

5G NR in the Netherlands

Commercial 5G NR has been available in the Netherlands since June 2020. It is available on T-Mobile, KPB & Vodafone networks. However, prepaid customers, including all the MVNOs, cannot use 5G NR yet.

Best SIM Card in the Netherlands

If you want to buy the best SIM card in the Netherlands, I recommend going with T-Mobile or KPN. T-Mobile has a great network with capped prepaid speeds @ 100 Mbps. KPN has the best network, but it limits all prepaid speeds, including its MVNOs (all MVNOs are KPN MVNOs in the Netherlands), @ 25 Mbps.

Best eSIM in the Netherlands

Unfortunately, none of the mobile operators offer eSIMs to prepaid customers in the Netherlands (yet).

However, you can get travel eSIMs from Airalo, Holafly & Nomad.

Airalo has the Hè Hè eSIMs:

Holafly and Nomad also have eSIMs covering all of the European Union (and more).

SIM Card Registration in the Netherlands

SIM card registration using your passport information is not needed when buying a SIM card in the Netherlands.

However, do note that the mobile operators may encourage you to register your SIM by providing incentives, such as extra credit or data.

In this case, registration means creating an account with the operator and does not require your passport information.

EU Roaming in the Netherlands

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

The Netherlands is part of the European Union (EU).

Since June 2017, those with EU/EEA (European Economic Area) SIM cards can roam for free in other EU/EEA nations, including the Netherlands.

This means that, in the majority of cases, you do not need to purchase a Dutch 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).

In countries where local mobile data rates are extremely low (such as in the Baltics and the 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 the Netherlands or if restrictions apply.

Roaming in the EU with Dutch SIM Cards

The Netherlands and the Dutch mobile operators have largely adopted the roam like at home regulations principles early on.

However, some plans have an EU/EEA roaming cap.

Moreover, the standard Fair Use Policy applies where you should not be roaming over 50% of the time over a four-month period.

If you do so, EU roaming rates will apply. You are then better off buying local prepaid SIM cards in other EU nations.

Currency in the Netherlands

The Netherlands 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.

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

  • 1 EUR = 1.15 USD
  • 10 EUR = 10.75 USD
  • 100 EUR = 107.50 USD

For up-to-date EUR:your currency (let's say GBP – (British) Pound (Sterling)) 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).

KPN

KPN Netherlands Logo
© KPN

KPN is the second-largest mobile operator in the Netherlands.

As of 2021, KPN is the fastest (5G NR) mobile operator in the country.

And it is also the mobile operator with the best overall network.

While this is all good news, KPN throttles prepaid speeds to up to 25 Mbps – and that also applies to its KPN MVNOs.

And (un)fortunately, all MVNOs easily accessible to travelers are KPN MVNOs.

And I say up to – you will often have to deal with even slower speeds.

What is funny is that when you roam on the KPN network, like with the Hè Hè Airalo eSIM, you will get much faster speeds than with KPN prepaid.

Flexiroam in the Netherlands (KPN Network)

KPN uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz
  • 3G: N/A – shut down in March 2022
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1500 MHz (Band 32), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1) & 2600 MHz (Band 7 & Band 38)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28) & 2100 MHz (n1)
  • VoLTE: Yes (but not for prepaid)
  • VoWiFi: Yes (but not for prepaid)

Other Ways to Stay Connected When Traveling in the Netherlands

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

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 the Netherlands

Getting a SIM card from T-Mobile or KPN(‘s MVNOs) would do you well when considering a Dutch SIM card.
