Expat Mobile is the only Dutch telecom operator that makes it possible to order a mobile phone subscription before you enter the country. Thus you can start calling immediately after arrival in the Netherlands. No Dutch bank account is needed.
Minutes / Messaging for domestic and EU usage
The Expat Mobile GoDutch mobile phone subscriptions offer you 200, unlimited minutes and 100, 300 or 750 messages per month. You can use these to call / SMS in the Netherlands as well as in the EU.
Minutes / Messaging for international usage
Since you are an expat, on top of that you also get an additional 100, 300 or 750 minutes OR SMS every month. These are specifically to call /message home while in the Netherlands. This is one of the features that make expat mobile unique: calling abroad from the country the subscription originates is not a regulated tariff and therefore usually charges separately at a hefty tariff.
Data for domestic and EU usage
Also, you will get 1200, 6000 or 10000 MB 4G data traffic for usage in the Netherlands as well as in the EU. 1200 MB will suffice for web browsing, email and occasional video or audio streaming. For regular audio streaming we advice 6000 MB. For regular video streaming we advice 10000 MB.
For the Whole Family
Per Expat Mobile account you can get up to four SIM cards with unique mobile numbers for your family members. The SIM cards can be used for both voice and 4G data.
The contract duration is 3, 6, 12 or 24 months. However, we believe in flexibility: if you leave the Netherlands before your contract has ended, just send us a statement from your employer or other legal proof that you leave the country permanently and we will end your contract at the end of the month at no extra cost.
The Small Print
If you use extra minutes, messages or megabytes you pay 22 cents per minute, message or megabyte. We have summarised all tariffs for download/print into one sheet.
To confirm with EU legislation the Dutch data/voice/sms bundles can also be used in the EU. International calls originating in the Netherlands are exempt from this legislation.
A Fair Use Policy (FUP) applies to the voice traffic of certain subscriptions. The Fair Use Policy is part of our terms and conditions and means that voice, SMS and data usage may be up to 10 times the average usage of all our users. The Fair Use Policy is to ensure that all our customers can use our subscriptions in a normal way – it is a principle used by all Dutch providers, although they may not be as open about it as we are.
