SIM card in Sicily

Jump to last reply

We're going to be traveling around Sicily, and I'd like to get a local pre-paid SIM card. Does anyone know if there's a SIM kiosk at the airport? Or have experience getting a SIM in Palermo or Trapani that might be helpful?
Thanks!

    I see no one responded to your question, so I'll tell you the little I know.

    You didn't specify which airport you're flying into, so there's no way to answer that. However, I'd like to warn you not to buy a so-called "internationak SIM card" that is sold at kiosks in many airports, not just in Italy, but in other countries. These are almost always shockingly overpriced and often don't even work as advertised.

    You should get a SIM card from one of the Italian providers: TIM and Vodafone are the largest, with the best coverage country-wide. Both have packages for tourists that give you both talk time and a reasonable amount of data. (You also didn't say what you wanted to use the phone for.) These packages, including the cost of the SIM card, should cost about €30. TIM's package is called TIM Welcome, although they have a plan just now called TIM for Visitors, that has more data and fewer minutes of talk time. Vodafone's plan is called TIM Holiday. Both allow you to call your home country using the minutes included in the package. TIM's plan also allows you to call anywhere in Europe or the USA, as well as many other countries world-wide, using the plan minutes.
