Getting a mobile phone or Dutch SIM card

ESN Rotterdam has free SIM cards that you can collect from its office. The SIM card provider is Lebara, which has cheap rates for calling other people with a Lebara SIM card.

If you’d like to buy a mobile phone or get a SIM card from a different provider, you can go to one of the other providers’ shops in Rotterdam city centre. The best-known Dutch providers are KPN, Vodafone, T-mobile, Telfort, Ben and Tele2.

Of course you could also order a mobile phone or SIM card online, but as most websites are in Dutch, we advise you to ask ESN Rotterdam to help you with this.
