Pay as you go UK SIM card

If you purchase one of our 1st Contact Relocation Packages, you will receive a UK SIM card delivered directly to your address.

Prepaid options are the most popular for our clients as it means that you pay only when you use your mobile phone, so there’s no need to worry about contractual obligations, having a good credit score or going over your budget. Peak hours and off-peak hours have varying tariffs, so use your phone wisely and try to buy “bolt-on” packages like data bundles and call discount packages.

The packages and data for your phone can be bought online, from a mobile phone or directly from the service providers stores.

Contract mobile services

Once you open a bank account in the UK and build a credit rating, you will be able to take out a mobile phone contract.

A contract will allow you to select a service to suit your personal needs, with the bonus of a free mobile phone. You will have a direct debit set up against your bank account, which will be billed on a monthly basis. Consider setting a limit on your contract to avoid an unexpected bill at the end of the month.
