Data for your phone

Getting a pre-paid data is convenient when you arrive in Iceland

  • At the airport: ELKO in the Duty-free store or 10/11 convenience store after you clear customs.
  • In Reykjavik, you get them at various places such as gas stations, convenience stores, tourist shops, booking agencies and much more. What to get? Scroll down.

We will assume that you only need data since EU ruling on roaming charges make calls from overseas much cheaper, and getting a new number just for your holiday is unpractical. You can get prepaid data at various places around Iceland, the first stop is Elko in the Duty-Free store, or at the 10/11 convenience store after you clear customs at the Airport.

In Reykjavík, you can buy these prepaid data cards all over the place, gas stations, convenience stores, tourist shops and booking agencies.
