Which Croatia mobile operator you would recommend to others?

Croatia, as member of EU, implement “roam like at home” rules which mean that when you use your mobile phone while travelling outside your home country in any EU country you don’t have to pay any additional roaming charges.

You benefit from these rules when calling (to mobile and fixed phones), sending text messages (SMS) and using data services while abroad. These rules also apply when receiving calls or texts while roaming even if the person you are calling is using a different service provider.

You pay exactly the same price for using these services when travelling in the EU as you would if you were at home.

Mobile users must be aware that outside EU countries, on the ships, cruisers, planes etc. there are still roaming charges and they can be very high.

We can help you to avoid them and find the best solutions for your Croatia or any other country roaming needs. Get your Alert now.

it is capped, so always ask when buying a sim card. Free EU roaming means
 the sim card you buy in Paris or Cannes can also be used in Madrid, 
Prague or even Oslo. Free EU roaming on Croatia SIM cards is great for 
those that arrive in Croatia and travel to more countries in Europe on 
the same trip.
