All HolidayPhone prepaid SIM cards for Spain are pre-activated for 3G Internet access.
A 550MB bundle of data usage in 3G speed (30 days validity) costs just €5 (£4.40) and is easily activated by sending a text message. The fee is deducted from the balance of the SIM. If you need more than 550MB you can activate another 550MB/€5 bundle.
When 5MB of your allowance remains, you get a text that the bundle is almost consumed, so that you can activate another one - if you like.

Say goodbye to arbitrary per MB fees when travelling!
How long does 1GB data last?
This is a tough question to answer because it depends on how you use it, but for most of our customers, 1GB data is more than enough.
Typically 1GB data lasts for:
4000 emails (no attachments), plus 500 emails with attachments, plus 3000 web pages, plus 200 photos to social media sites, plus 250 hours of Google Navigation usage.
Calls between two travellers in Spain using HolidayPhone
For each €5 voucher you add to your call balance, you get 90 minutes of calls to travel companions also using a HolidayPhone SIM card. If you talk for more than the free minutes, the rate for exceeding time equals that of local calls as stated above. If you are travelling in a party, we recommend that you order HolidayPhone for all travellers, so that you can make cheap calls between each other on your trip. To achieve this, just dial the local Spanish mobile phone number provided with the Spain SIM card.
If the call balance runs out
Our Spain SIM cards is delivered pre-topped up with €5 (£4.40) call balance, which covers for 90 minutes of talk time to the UK. If you need additional top up such as for internet bundles or local calls in Spain, you can buy top-up vouchers online through us or directly from the operator online. You can also buy these in kiosks and supermarkets across Spain.
With the €5 vouchers you can buy from us, you also receive a €2.50 bonus, so that the total amount topped up is €7.50 for each. You also receive a bonus of 90 minutes of calls to travel companions and 50MB free internet access. If you add 3x€5 vouchers you receive a total of €22.50 (3*€7.50). The bonus top up credit can only be used for calls.
The Spain Pay As You Go SIM card is valid for 120 days after the most recent top up.
Calling UK from Spain
When calling home using your HolidayPhone SIM card, just dial +44 without the leading zero of the area code. For example: 07511 223344 becomes +44 7511 223344.
A 90 minutes bundle of calls to the UK can be activated through a quick text for €5. The cost for the bundle is deducted from the call balance.
The bundle is valid for 10 days from activation, and there is no call connection fee when using a call bundle.
For calls to the UK outside the call bundle, the rate is €0.11/min plus a call connection fee of €0.29 per call.
Receive calls in Spain
You receive inbound calls dialled to your British mobile phone numberjust as usual as all calls are seamlessly forwarded from UK to your Spanish SIM card without any international roaming charges.
A Spanish mobile phone number is included, that can be used when people within Spain or travel companions using HolidayPhone, want to call you. There is no cost for receiving unlimited calls dialled directly to your Spanish number.
What if the call forwarding time runs out?
The HolidayPhone package includes 1 hour of free diverted calls from the UK, but you can easily add more forwarding time at a low cost when ordering your HolidayPhone package.
In case all your call forwarding time is consumed, the call forwarding feature will stop working, so you don't have to worry about us charging you any fees in arrears.
In comparision, it often costs £0.50-£3.00 per minute to receive calls roaming using a UK operator abroad, so by using HolidayPhone, you save £30-£180 for receiving 1 hour of calls on your British mobile phone number abroad.
Nationwide coverage in Spain
The mobile phone operator in Spain uses the Orange network which is one of the biggest network in Spain. Coverage includes all of Spain including for instance Mallorca, Ibiza, Tenerife and Canary Islands.
