Hey All,

I am reaching Zermatt from Italy and I was wondering if it will be possible to buy a sim card at Zermatt station or in the village.

Is it cheaper in the village compared to train station?

Also, what are my options when it comes to sim providers? Can I get links to webpages to get an understanding of sim plans etc.

Thanks!

Anna

Hi Wittyengs,

I'm sure there should be one or multiple stores offering SIM cards in Zermatt, but I don't have details. We do have an overview of Wifi hotspots and SIM cards at the page Anna linked to.

Die Post, Bahnhofstrasse 46 should be able to sell you a SIM.

For the best value data SIM you can’t go past shop.salt.ch/en/plans/prepay/

The actual offer may be hidden behind a 50% discount pop up which you have to dismiss to see the real deal. Hit the "X" at top right hand corner of the pop up.

It is not officially endorsed by MySwissAlps but I used this SIM when I visited in 2017 and 2019 and found it great value and excellent coverage.

CHF19.95 (when I used this SIM in 2017 it was only CHF10 but still great value) gets you 10 days unlimited high-speed data (assuming you use it only for data and not calls as well).

Swisscom offer a CHF2/day pre-paid deal but they have a limit of 10Gb/month and speeds are limited to 10Mbps download and 2Mbps upload which is probably OK if you primarily want to use the SBB mobile app. But don’t go trying to stream Netflix HD on that!

If you want unlimited calls and data the Sunrise have a pretty compelling deal (www.sunrise.ch/medias/sys_master/Factsheets/Factsheets/hef/hc7/8974911078430/B03-Factsheet-Sunrise-Prepaid-Unlimited-EN.pdf).

Make sure your phone is not locked to your home provider. If it is then the Traveller's WiFi is the go. See www.myswissalps.com/simcard.
