TURKEY SIM CARD AND BEST PREPAID TURKEY TOURIST SIM CARD

TURKEY PREPAID SIM CARD BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about prepaid Turkey sim card, internet and data connection in Turkey is amazing and most of the places you will have 4G and I don’t even remember being offline while traveling in Turkey even in remote area. You will have to show your passport and register and there aren’t many options for tourist sim cards in Turkey.

We recommend you to get your sim card in the phone shops in Turkey since it’s cheaper than buying in the airport. If you want to connect online in a hurry it will be useful to leave the airport with your Turkey sim card to order Uber or checking maps to your next destination.

There are 3 phone operators in Turkey: Turkcell, Vodafone and Turk Telekom. The sim card packages for data in Turkey are cheap (mostly because Turkish Lira is going down lately) but you can not use outside the country in Europe.

Sometimes is hard to connect your laptop to the VPN and you have to be patient. If you go for a week you will find VPN with free trials. We used Atlas VPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark and Proton VPN. When connecting the VPN to your device will make it slower than usual.
