Using you mobile phone in Keukenhof. Stay connected!
Arriving in Amsterdam from the USA, Africa, Asia, South America and other overseas places you can, in most cases, use your own cell phone. In hotels and restaurants you will have easy access to WIFI and there will be no additional costs for using data there. Keep in mind however, that you will have to pay extra charges for your regular incoming and outgoing phone calls. Besides, when sightseeing the city or visiting sites like Keukenhof, which is located outside of the city, in most places there will be no access to WIFI. When using your own smart phone with the subscription from your home country you will be confronted with high roaming charges. Because of the roaming charges your data and phone calls can get high. Common tasks such as checking your email, browsing the internet and using apps can get expensive. The solution is to buy a sim card in the Netherlands.
Using your phone with a Dutch prepaid sim card in the Netherlands
The easiest way to avoid high charges when using your own mobile phone during your visit to Holland is to buy a local prepaid sim card. A local sim card grants you access to the network of the local provider and enables you to use your mobile phone at attractive local data rates. With the Dutch sim card installed in your phone you can make phone calls and use any app or feature on your phone that uses data like WhatsApp, email, Face Time or navigation. Incoming calls are free of charge. Keep in mind that with a new card you will also receive a new local phone number. Make sure to share it with the people you want to contact while you’re in the Netherlands.
