The data package is valid for 30 days.

The Voice & Data SIM card can be used in a dongle, iPad/tablet, MiFi router or used for tethering with laptop. Keep in mind that, in order to activate the data bundle, you will first need to insert the SIM card in an unlocked mobile phone.

Data SIM card for Mexico

The Data SIM card is pre-loaded with 1 GB data, ready to use. No activation of the data plan is needed, so it's ideal for use in a dongle/router/tablet/iPad/modem. The data plan is valid for 30 days.

Regardless of which SIM you select, you can say goodbye to arbitrary per MB fees while traveling!

How long does 1GB data last?

That's a tough question to answer! It depends on how you usually use data, but for most of our customers, 1GB is more than enough.

Typically 1GB data lasts for:
4000 emails (no attachments), plus 500 emails with attachments, plus 3000 web pages, plus 200 photos to social media sites, plus 250 hours of Google Navigation usage.

Calls between two travelers in Mexico using HolidayPhone

The cost for calls between two travelers using HolidayPhone is the same rate as a local call within Mexico. If you're traveling in a party, we strongly recommend that you order HolidayPhone SIMs for everyone, so that you can call each other at excellent low rates while on your trip. Simply dial the local Mexican mobile phone number provided with the new SIM.

Easy Top Up options available

Voice+Data card SIM

The prepaid Mexico SIM card has an initial call balance of 200 pesos for outgoing calls or internet usage.

You can choose to add extra credit on your new SIM if needed when you place your order. We'll take care of topping up the card for you prior to your departure.

Top Up vouchers can also be bought in kiosks and supermarkets across Mexico, as our SIMs are provided by one of the leading operators.

The SIM card is valid 90 days from the most recent top up, so it will be valid indefinitely, as long as you top up at least once every 90 days.

Data SIM card

The Data SIM card is ready for use as soon as you arrive in Mexico. It contains 1GB data pre-loaded, which is valid for 30 days from your date of departure.

Calling the US from Mexico

When calling the US using your Mexican HolidayPhone SIM card, just dial +1 followed by the US phone number. For example: 212-333-4444 becomes +12123334444.

Receiving calls in Mexico

You receive calls dialed to your US phone number just as usual - all calls are seamlessly forwarded from the US to your Mexican SIM card, without any international roaming charges.

Locals in Mexico or travel companions who also use HolidayPhone can reach you easily just by dialing your new Mexican cellphone number. There is no cost for receiving calls dialed directly to your new number.

What if the call forwarding time runs out?

The HolidayPhone package includes 1 hour of calls forwarded from the US. If you need more call forwarding, you can easily add extra hours at a low cost when placing your order, or when you're already at your destination.

When your call forwarding time is consumed, the call forwarding feature will simply stop working. You will never be charged extra fees for the service.

In comparison, it often costs $1-$5 per minute to receive calls while roaming with a US carrier abroad, so by using HolidayPhone, you can save up to $300 on receiving 1 hour of calls on your American phone number while traveling.

Choose between Micro, Nano or Standard sized SIM

When ordering, be sure to choose the correct size and get a Micro, Nano or Standard sized SIM card.
- Standard size is used in older phones.
- Micro size is used in iPhone 4/4S and newer phone models.
- Nano size is only used in iPhone 5/5S/5C and iPad Mini.

If you are unsure about what size you'll need, just measure your current SIM card.

No obligations. No hassle. Direct dial local SIMs.

All HolidayPhone SIMs are local prepaid SIM cards which means that we can offer much lower rates, compared to using an "international SIM card".

There are no obligations, no contract and no subscription. We never charge any fees retrospectively.

If your destination country requires SIM card registration, we process your registration with the carrier on your behalf ahead of your arrival, so you don't have to worry about it. All HolidayPhone SIM cards are ready for use when you arrive at your destination.

Compare our offer with competitors

HolidayPhone offers a solution that is cheap and easy to use. If you're comparing our service with other providers, make sure to check:

Do you get your US calls forwarded for free, or will you be unreachable on your usual number while abroad?

Is mobile Internet / data included, or available at a reasonable price?

Is the SIM card activated and registered for you, or will you have to go through that hassle yourself upon arrival?

And lastly - compare rates. Our rates for calls, texts and internet are among the cheapest available in our destination countries.
