Pre-paid cards

Pre-paid card are allowing you to manage your “on demand” your telephone and internet consumption with a system of rechargeable card that you can charge with variable amount (credit). To charge your SIM card with credits you need to enter a code on your phone.

  • The advantages: no need to open a bank account
  • Disadvantage: more expensive that a plan
You can buy pre-paid card:
  • As a “Kit” : you will get a mobile phone, a SIM card and a credits charge
  • As a SIM card coming with a credits charge (if you already have a phone)
  • As a charge for your SIM card, that you can use “on demand”

Usually, a card by itself cost about 4 € at any operator. The amount of charge depends on your telephone consumption. All the main operators are offering pre-paid card. Here are a few options that could be interesting for a student who stays 3 to 6 months in France.
