These options are nice and easy, but the only thing to remember is, that with Oister you'll have to verify with MitID. And that is okay, if you are already settle in with CPR-nummer and all of that. But if you have just arrived, Lebara and LycaMobile might be the better option. LycaMobile you can even find in the airport.

Pre-paid Data SIM card

One last and very neat option is Airalo. This amazing app gives you the option of buying eSIMs for wherever you go - and also for Denmark.


You simply have to download the app, make sure you have a smartphone that is compatible for eSIM, and then chose the eSIM you want. For every country there are different packages.


It's an amazing app, very easy to use, and it's a good place to start when arriving in Denmark. You can always download the app, when connected to Wi-Fi lets say in the airport, and then you are good to go.

Lebara

Lebara offers fixed price on all their deal in terms of a SIM card with good coverage.

They currently offer this package with the following reviews:


  1. 100 hours and 100 GB a month for only 99 DKK/month

  2. 4,7 stars on Trustpilot with 4.600+ 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 5 GB data and 5hours for 19 DKK/month.


But have in mind that they have limited amount of hours you can call to another country. In most of their packages this is limited to 10 hours/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!

CBB

CBB is using the TT mobile network, which is Telenor and Telia and covers all of Denmark. Currently CBB offers this affordable package and has the following reviews:

Duka

Duka is, together with Alka Mobil, one of the newer players on this market. Their packages are in the medium range priced, but you’ll get good coverage, good amount of data and you’ll get one of the best customer services there is.


At the moment their new campaign includes:

Lycamobile

You might know Lycamobile as it is internationally established. Currently they offer this package and have the following reviews:


  1. Free call-time and 100 GB for 99 DKK/month

  2. 3,3 stars on Trustpilot with 1.200+ reviews


In some of their deals they even offer 10%-30% off for the first few months.

This is a decent deal considering that you can call +50 countries as well.

They have acceptable customer satisfaction. However, bear in mind that most of the negative reviews are from pre-paid SIM cards and people who are complaining about customer support.



Oister

Oister is very well known in Denmark and has existed for many years.

They are using the 3 mobile network, which is a more expensive option. Nevertheless, their offers are quite affordable and they have a good score on Trustpilot:


  1. Free call-time and 50 GB data for 99 DKK/Month

  2. 4.0 stars on Trustpilot based on 23.000+ reviews


Oister regularly has special discounts, excellent coverage and high customer satisfaction.

Currently you'll get this subscription for 29 DKK/month the first 2 months

What is a bit different with Oister, is that they can also offer you unlimited call-time and unlimited data for only 179 DKK/month. It is quite high for a phone subscription plan, but in case you do not haveWi-Fi at home, this could be a great option on how to save money. Just use your hotspot and you don't have to pay 300 DKK monthly for the internet!


Conclusion

AlkaMobil is our top recommendation to you. They keep everything simple, they offer great service, a good product and their existing customers are very happy about what they get. They have a subscription that suits more or less everyone, and at very affordable prices.


It's also worth mentioning that Lebara seems like quite a good option when you are looking for the very cheapest SIM card in Denmark, that can also bring you value in the long term. However, their plans do not come with 5G connectivity, but only 4G. This means that the internet is significantly slower and less stable.


But it is also 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.




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


NB: some information might be outdated. We do our best to keep everything up to date!
