Planing a trip to Greece: How to get a Prepaid SIM Card with Internet

| Travel guides | 3 seen

I traveled to Greece for about 2 weeks in June 2017, our final destination was island of Crete. One of the reasons I was looking for prepaid sim card in Greece is simple - for navigation (Google maps helps a lot).

From my previous experience with dealing with different sim cards in multiple European countries I already knew, it shouldn't be a problem to get one in Greece.

Planing a Trip to Spain: How to Get a Prepaid SIM Card in Spain

I planned to purchase whatever operators SIm card with broad coverage at Athens airport. Unfortunately when there I forgot to do that, and bought one after a couple of hours near Acropolis metro station from a guy selling Vodafone Sim Cards (just for the information, there was another guy selling WIND sim-cards)

I paid EUR 15 and got sim card (actually two, though never used second one) with 10GB internet limit on it. For a savvy tech guy like me 10GB is not much, but as I was on vacation and only reason I was looking for a sim card with internet was just for navigation 10GB is more than enough. Most hotels in Greece offers high speed Wi-Fi.

The SIM card guy from Vodafone took a picture with his phone of my passport, set up an agreement and less than in 15 minutes I was all setup. 

Now, the first stress test for mobile internet in Greece I set in Crete, during my stay there I cannot complain about coverage at all, as most of the times it was a 4G internet. 

I really like the fact that Vodafone Greece can be topped up using Paypal from a single either mobile webpage or application.
