Remember that not all of Greece is as urbanized as the likes of Athens, Mykonos, and others. Part of what fascinates many people about this Mediterranean country is its natural beauty, after all. And if you're suddenly required to move here, there might still be a chance that you get transferred to a more or less rural town. So in any case, it's a smart move to invest in a Cosmote SIM card. Not only is this company one of the biggest mobile networks in Greece, but it also has the widest coverage, especially in the more remote areas
If you want to go for the network with the cheapest prices, however, there's Frog Mobile. Though its system works under that of Cosmote, it's become an entirely different company altogether. And their deals are very inviting, especially if you're on a strict budget. For example, you can get a package that's worth only €5.10 which will give you 5GB of internet data and free 60 minutes for calls & texts. Not bad, right? And since they're affiliated with Cosmote, you can expect their coverage to be nearly as vast and wide too, meaning you can still get signal even when you're in the mountains!
More often than not, investing in international mobile networks is a good idea. Fortunately, here in Greece, there are a tone of them you can join. Orange, in particular, remains a strong player in the telecommunications game even here in Greece. They offer really great packages, priced just right. Not as low as those in Frog Mobile though, but low enough that you won't have to shell out a ton of money to pay for your phone bills every month. At most, their highest-priced deal here is their Three Smart Gold Plan, which gives you 12GB internet data and unlimited calls & texts. It costs €40.00.
Vodafone is also another mobile network you've probably seen and heard of in other European countries. What's great about this company is that it's so big and well-known on the continent, you'll really feel its presence even in Greece. While other mobile networks barely have their own shops, you'll see a Vodafone branch or kiosk in many places in the country. Their prices are also not that bad. A prepaid deal from them that only costs €25.00 will already give you 12GB internet data and 100 minutes of calls & texts. It's a pretty sweet deal if you think about it!
Finally, there's Wind. Though a relatively young player in the game, it has certainly proven its worth as an effective and trustworthy mobile network here in Greece. Their prices are also stellar, mostly ranging from €5.00 to €15.00. Though do note that a good number of them don't include calling minutes. But at least, however, they contain data, which is often enough in this technological age! But perhaps the best deal you can get into with Wind is a €10.00 monthly plan that will give you 11GB internet data, 300 minutes of free calls, and 20 SMS messages.
If you're moving to a country like Greece, getting a local SIM card is no longer a luxury, it's a necessity. Luckily, there are a ton of great mobile networks here to choose from that offer great deals that will satisfy your needs and help you save money!
Once you've saved a ton of money form your local SIM card, it's time to invest in a new home here! Your best choice? A Greek luxury rental that's fully furnished and will definitely feel like home to you!
