Why get a Balkans SlM card?
Some of the Balkans countries aren’t part of the EU so really high roaming costs can occur. Therefore, they usually do.
Forget about roaming costs, forget about the hours spent desperately looking for free Wi-Fi connections, forget about buying local SIM’s…
This SIM card includes:
- Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Moldova, Romania, Slovenia
- 4G or 3G usage depends on the capability of the network operators in each country.
No registration is required. No contract. Pay as you go Prepaid SIM.
Consequently this SIM card is ideal for travellers who travel multiple European countries in a trip.
The 11 countries lying on the Balkan Peninsula are called the Balkan states or in short, just the Balkans.
What Are the Western Balkans?
There is a regional term often used when talking about the Balkan Peninsula and this is the Western Balkans. The name “Western Balkans” describes the countries on the western edge of the region, along the Adriatic coast. The Western Balkans include Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.
Home to some 17 million people, all of the Western Balkans countries except for Albania were once part of former Yugoslavia before it fractured.
From 1 July, citizens and businesses in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia will pay less while using their mobile phones when they are roaming within the region. Most importantly
- Consumers will see a substantial reduction of their roaming charges within the region.
- Calls will be coming up to eight times cheaper and costs for data dropping on average from €3/MB to €0.20/MB.
In conclusion, the new regional roaming agreement is a first step towards the introduction of “roam like at home” within the region, with further reductions of roaming charges expected as of 1 January 2020.
