Buying a SIM card in Gibraltar

Tourists may not need an extra SIM card for this small territory, because Spanish antennas cover a major part of it and EEA SIM cards (including Spanish ones) roam in Gibraltar without a surcharge. But in some densely built-up areas of the town area and on the southern tip of the rock 3G/4G coverage is not reached from Spain. Although roaming with a Spanish SIM card is not surcharged, it is either at reduced bandwidth or takes up to an hour or longer to connect. So if you stay for longer, you may think of buying a local SIM card. Traveling to Gibraltar?

Although Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory and part of the EU by virtue of the UK’s EU membership, it’s not part of the UK. That’s why Gibraltarian networks’ rules and policies differ from those of UK networks, in particular in respect of validity.

There are several mobile operators in Gibraltar, including Gibtelecom, Vodafone, and CTS Mobile.

Sim cards can be purchased from the mobile operators’ retail stores, as well as from some electronics and convenience stores. There are also options to purchase sim cards online and have them delivered to your location. The average price of a SIM card in Gibraltar is around £10-£20 (GBP).

When purchasing a SIM card, it is recommended to avoid buying an expensive one at the airport or in the last minute, as prices tend to be higher and you may be limited in your options.  Travel to Gibraltar?

Gibraltar is still part of the EU as British overseas territory, where from 2017 new international roaming rules have been enforced. In most European countries you can now ‘roam like at home’ at domestic rates rather than excessive roaming rates.

Gibraltar has implemented the new rules and will enforce them as long Gibraltar remains part of the EU. But some policies may be reversed after a departure by Gibraltar from the EU.

Following a referendum in favour of leaving the EU held in 2016, the UK gave two years’ notice for itself and Gibraltar to leave the EU in March 2019. This date was postponed twice until 31st October 2019 with an option to leave sooner if the withdrawal agreement is approved by the UK’s parliament.

There are around 100 hotels in Gibraltar, ranging from budget-friendly options to luxury resorts. The average price for a hotel room in Gibraltar is around £80-£150 (GBP) per night, depending on the location, type of room, and time of year.

Gibraltar International Airport is the only airport in Gibraltar and operates flights to a number of destinations in Europe, including the United Kingdom, Spain, and Portugal. There are several airlines that operate flights to and from Gibraltar, including British Airways, EasyJet, and Ryanair.
