Lebara - OUR PICK!

Lebara offers a very sweet deal in terms of a SIM card with good coverage.

They currently offer this package with the following reviews:

  • 100 hours and 100 GB a month for only 99 DKK/month
  • 4,4 stars on Trustpilot with 1000+ reviews

You are able to call 60 countries, so there is a great likelihood that you can call or Facetime your mom regularly, for many hours, and at a low cost.

They also offer cheaper packages, though with lower amounts of hours and data. Their current cheapest offer is 2 GB data and 2 hours for 20 DKK/month.

You should always have an active subscription on one of their packages. If you don't, your data use will drain your credit fast, and if you are using automatic credit refills on your card, you will pay a lot of unnecessary fees! Thus, pay attention when you set up your subscription!

Lebara is without a doubt the option with the best value for money, for internationals staying in Denmark during their studies.

It is, however, important to mention that Lebara's coverage is not working in Slovakia and Czech Republic. In that case, you might want to pick out another option, from our list.

Conclusion

Lebara seems like quite a good option when you are looking for the cheapest SIM card in Denmark, that can also bring you value in the long term.

You can find their SIM cards in most shops and kiosks, and their SIM card packages are among the cheapest in Denmark.

We hope that the above options helped you a bit when choosing a new phone service provider here in Denmark.
