I'm going to visit Amsterdam end of the June for 5 days. I have managed to find out Libra Mobile and Lyca Mobile has the cheapest Mobile Data offering.

  • What is the best option to have for mobile data?

  • Can I buy it at AMS airport?

  • What are the documents needed?

  • I have mobile phone (iPhone SE Unlocked) from Sri Lanka and will it work with Netherland 4G bands?

  • What phone do you use?

Here are my a bit opinionated answers:

  • Libra or Lyca doesn't matter (prices https://www.bellen.com/vergelijken/prepaid, price will go up if you want 4G speed)
  • You can just pick up sim card from any gsm shops for free, but at the airport, you might pay for that
  • No documents needed
  • It will work without any problem unless your phone is locked to the provider

    If you arrive during day or early evening, look into the shops at the outside of the airport area but within the same complex. Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport) has a fair shopping mall for local use at the airport.

    Lyca and/or Lebara will require settings, I am familiar with the ones in the UK: Lebara need and APN to work, Lyca might work out of the box on 3G but APN settings are need to connect to 4G
