I will land at Amsterdam airport on 8th November. Are there shops selling prepaid SIM cards there? How much time does it take for a SIM to get activated? Any recommendations? I would like a plan with about 100MB data usage and 1 hour each of local and international calls.

I landed at Schiphol yesterday evening (around 21:00). I saw a Lebara stand in the plaza hall where you can get free sim and activate it. You can find the prices here. I used for a while Lebara mobile and quality of calls was reasonable.

  • yup, and there are a few more shops selling cellphones and cards in the area, including past arrivals in the mall.

  • Is that 4G or 3G? I couldn't find that on their website. Nov 3, 2014 at 12:13
  • I just asked support and they told that it is 3G connection Nov 3, 2014 at 16:50
  • I just bought a Lebara SIM for 30 euro, consisting of 15 euro airtime and 1G data. The Lebara stand is at arrivals 3 in the Schiphol plaza, at the Body Shop (shop 13). Sep 13, 2015 at 9:53
