Pay As You Go SIM cards pre-loaded with bundles
Pay As You Go SIM Cards offer great value without the need to commit to a lengthy contract. You can still enjoy great benefits with an add-on including 5G at no extra cost and free roaming in 71 worldwide countries.
Data packs offer you even better value on Pay As You Go, as they come pre-loaded with unlimited minutes and texts, along with an allowance of data that you can use for one calendar month. You’ll also be able to use your minutes, texts, and data abroad with Go Roam Around the World.
Yes, order a free SIM and you can then top-up and enjoy low Pay As You Go rates that don’t expire. Just 10p per minute, 10p per text and 5p per MB of data. You will be able to pay the same rates in the EU and other free roaming destinations as you do in the UK for data or for calling or texting the UK or Europe. But calls and texts to countries outside Europe (even if you’re in them) can often cost more.
Absolutely. The same data packs can be purchased by topping up an existing SIM, or you can just top-up with credit. Find out more on how to top-up.
Yes, if you buy a data pack you can use your minutes, texts, and data abroad in 71 destinations at no extra cost with Go Roam Around the World. The only limitation is you can use a maximum of 12GB of roaming data each month, and if you’re outside Europe then you’re also limited to 3000 minutes and texts back to the UK.
It's worth noting that from the 23rd of May 2022, Three is charging most customers to roam, but at the time of writing this won’t apply to Pay As You Go – so you’ll be able to continue using your allowances at no extra cost.
Tethering is allowed on Pay As You Go plans in the UK, or in a Go Roam in Europe destination. However, tethering is not allowed in Go Roam Around the World destinations.
Yes, a free SIM can be ordered here which can then be topped-up with credit or a bundle after it arrives.
