Local, International & Travel SIM Card Reviews by Phone Travel Wiz

You have probably noticed that I am a big fan of local SIM cards.

Mostly because it is the cheapest method to stay connected when traveling.

Especially because international roaming can be crazy expensive.

I have written many SIM card buying guides for Phone Travel Wiz.

But you may have been wondering how I conclude which local SIM card is the best?

Well, I test all the mobile operators in a country (where possible – some countries limit the number SIM cards (tourists) can have).

Or I ask my friend or contacts to do small tests for me (and they do – gotta love friends like that!).

But I still prefer to do the extensive testing myself.

So on this page, you can get to all the SIM card reviews I have written.

It mainly includes local SIM cards, but I also try out international and travel SIM cards.

You will only find SIM card reviews from countries I have visited since 2020.

Mostly because I did not start Phone Travel Wiz until late-2019 😎.

Now that many countries have reopened, or are reopening, expect many more reviews to come in the years to come!
