How to get a local SIM card in Turkey?


Turkey has one of the best telecommunications infrastructures and services in the world.

The most popular company with more than 30 million users is Turkcell. The company has a package offering 40 GB of Internet, 200-minute calls in all directions and unlimited messaging via WhatsApp available for 30 days. This also includes discounts at some restaurants and travel guide apps useful when visiting museums. Check out their website for store details and campaigns.

Another equally popular operator in Turkey, Vodafone, is also known in many countries. Vodafone offers a prepaid SIM card with the option of an exclusive package containing 20 GB of internet, 750 minutes of calls and 1000 SMS valid for 28 days. You can get the package at international airports in the country or at the nearest Vodafone stores.

The third popular service provider is Turk Telekom, but it has poor coverage outside the main cities. There are several different tariffs at different prices, valid for 30 days. More information is available on their website.

Internet speeds in major cities such as Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara differ from those in the country as a whole. When traveling to rural areas, you should check the signal coverage beforehand. If necessary, change service providers.
