I'm going to Alpe d'Huez via bus from GNB (Alpes–Isère Airport‏).

Would I be able to buy a SIM card with about 2 GB of data at the airport?

If not, where can I buy one at Alpe d'Huez?

    I'm not leaving this as an answer as I'm not certain, but I flew through Grenoble airport a few weeks ago and it was a tiny airport, I didn't notice a place to buy a SIM but I wasn't looking. I'd be surprised if one exists as there weren't many shops at the airport.

GNB has a newsagent (RELAY) that just might be able to help. However it might be worth checking first, the company can be contacted via Facebook.

A more promising alternative seems to be ALPEDHUEZNET which can be bought on line.


As pnuts said, you should try the RELAY at Grenoble airport.

If there's no SIM card there, try the bureaux de tabac in l'Alpe d'Huez. You should find a SIM card there.

  • If I understood correctly, "bureaux de tabac" only opens between 1/7-28/8 (2 months), so it's not relevant for tomorrow, right? Commented Jan 7, 2017 at 16:20

    @EranBetzalel I'm answering a bit late but: 1/ they'll probably be closed on Sunday, regardless of the date 2/ I emailed them and the dates on the website are confusing: they actually close one month during the spring and one month during summer
