Mail & Phones

You can use your mobile phone if your provider has an international roaming agreement with one of four mobile phone networks in the Netherlands. Normally, if you’re abroad, you have to pay roaming charges on all incoming and outgoing calls, text messages, mms and internet. Depending on your phone usage, it’s well worth considering buying a local SIM card that you simply use in your own phone. A prepaid account starts from around €10. To purchase one you need to show your passport.
