Calls between two travelers in Turkey using our prepaid SIM Card
Calls between travelers using our SIM are charged at the same rate as a local call in Turkey. If you are traveling in a party, we recommend that you order a Prepaid SIM card for all travelers, so that you can call each other for free (up to 250 minutes) while on your trip. Simply dial the local Turkish mobile phone number provided with the new SIM Card.
As a comparison, it could cost you up to €5/minute to make calls between two foreign mobile phones if you don't use a local SIM card in Turkey. The international roaming charges at both ends mean that the caller and receiver both end up paying astronomical charges for the call. It only takes a couple of minutes to regain the cost of your order if you're both using Pay As You Go SIM Cards for Turkey!
SIM Card validity
The prepaid SIM card for Turkey is valid for 6 months after the most recent top up.
If you plan to stay in Turkey for a longer period, it may be required after about 10 days that the
phone is registered
for continued usage in Turkey.
This procedure can be done in any Avea service center store.
Call balance and topping up
There is no initial call balance on our Turkish SIM card.
We recommend that you buy some additional top up credit with your order if you also
need call internationally or purchase addtional data bundles.
If you need additional top up while in Turkey, you can buy top-up vouchers in kiosks and supermarkets across Turkey.
Make international calls from Turkey
To make international calls using the Turkish SIM card, just dial the number in standard international format starting with a + sign followed by the international country code and phone number without the leading zero in the area code.
Example: To call the Australian (country code 61)
mobile number 0411 222 333 you dial +61 411 222 333
Receive calls in Turkey
You receive inbound calls on your Pay As You Go SIM Card for Turkey just as usual - free of charge!
