SIM card purchase at MAD (Madrid airport)?

Jump to last reply

I will be arriving in Madrid after an Iberia flight from NYC. For the very first time, I am bringing my (new) unlocked cell phone, and will need to purchase a SIM card. I am a total novice, never having done this before, and actually never (gasp!) having used a cell phone in Europe before.

What is the most convenient place to do this at the airport?

Is there anything I need to know before buying the card? (In case it is pertinent, I expect that my use of the phone will be very limited..during a two-week-plus visit to Spain, I expect to use it only to book restaurant reservations, call for directions, and any unforeseen emergencies during the few days that I will have a rental car...).
