Prepaid mobile telephone and internet services

Be aware that Serbia is neither part of the EU, nor of the EEA, where since 2017 new international roaming rules have been enforced. So, roaming rates on European SIM cards are not capped or regulated in the country and can be much higher. Better buy a local SIM card instead.

 

There are three mobile operators in Serbia. They all offer SIM cards with prepaid internet, some of which are tailored specifically for tourists (lots of data, short stays). Coverage and speed are generally good throughout the country. Prepaid SIM cards for all mobile networks are available at many points of sale.
