40% off - All Travel SIMs from $17.40 + Free Shipping - Stock Clearance/Hibernation Sale @ SimsDirect Sydney

Hi Ozbargain!

I’m Aidan from SimsDirect & wanted to let you know we’re having a 40% off stock clearance sale.
We’ve grown to appreciate the OZB community so much that I wanted to have full transparency about where we’re at, and why this sale is happening.
As you’re all I’m sure aware, the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been sending the world into a bit of a weird time.

Other than the obvious medical impact the virus is having, the travel industry has been decimated, unfortunately taking us along with it.

We’re a small startup, and with the sharp decline in SIM sales since the outbreak, we’ve had to make some really tough decisions and have no choice but to let our amazing team go.

Mac, Supriti and I will be moving out of our office space and trying to stay afloat until the current situation dissipates.

We don’t intend to go out of business; we’re gonna do everything in our power to stick around and keep doing what we’re doing, we are just going to have to bunker down for the next 6-12 months, until things pick up again.

We understand that everyone has had to cancel their travel plans this year (we did too) and it doesn't make sense to buy a travel SIM without flights booked. However, we're hoping that some of you guys are still keen to travel when covid-19 blows over and can help us out by buying your SIM now.

If, for whatever reason you don't travel - you are always welcome to return your SIMs for your money back.

Or - if you guys have been following us for a while, or would like to support us during this tough time, buying a 20% off gift card (that never expires!) would really go a long way in helping us. 👍

[We don’t expect anything guys, but we’re quite frankly in a vulnerable situation and any help is highly appreciated 😊].

Our hearts go out to everyone who’s being impacted by this, because it’s certainly not just us!
Stay healthy, everyone, and look after each other.

Much love ❤,

The Deal

40% off all stock! Until stock lasts.

Discount automatically applied at checkout.

    Used two sim cards for a recent Japan trip. Worked great and all out of the box. Just some websites assuming my home currency is HK$ was somewhat awkward at times.

    Good luck to you guys. Such a sympathetic company :)


      Hey Huuuugo,

      Glad to hear it worked well for you and thanks for the support!

    Purchased from these guys and the Sim cards didn't work as expected.
    Tried to share my experience via reviews on their site. Disappointingly, they didn't publish my review.

    Thought it was so underhanded that I saved my review to my email and vowed to warm fellow OzBargainers.

    Here's my original review:
    Travelled in Canada (BC, Alberta, and Saskatchewan). The SIMs were ok some of the time, but there were many, many times when there was simply no connection. There would be 4 bars, but no data. It happened across both my phone and my partner's phone, so it wasn't a hardware issue. Friends we were with would have full data coverage, so it's unlikely that it was a network issue. Only after reconnecting (by turning on airplane mode and turning it back off multiple times) would we get a signal. It was so bad that we have a completely unused SIM because we couldn't get a connection enough of the time to go through the 3gbs of data (and we were over in Canada for over 4 weeks).

    Gave this 2 stars since it did work some of the time, but it was about a 50/50 proposition.

      Hey L1ndros88,

      I'm really sorry to hear that your SIM experience was not helpful for your trip :(

      Sometimes there are technical issues with SIMs that are outside of our control and could be caused from a number of things. We find that most people don't have any issues at all but every now and then some people get unlucky.

      In your case you are entitled to a 100% refund on your purchase, so please email [email protected] and we can get that sorted for you!

      Nothing is worse than having sh!tty reception, It is extremely frustrating and I am so sorry that you had to go through that.

      RE: Your review. I'll take a look to see whats happened to it, please email me your email address (to [email protected]) that you used to make your purchase so I can search for it.

      If there is anything else I can do to help, please feel free to let me know.



    Does the Europe sim have unlimited calls to Australia?


      No calls to Australia are included


    Hi Aidan and team

    With these 2 products, please confirm expiry date as the website refer them as expiring at the end of 2020.

    Japan 15 Day Travel SIM( 6GB (4G LTE) Data-Only $27 31/03/2021
    China 30 Day Travel SIM( 6GB (4G LTE) Data-Only $24 31/03/2021

    Many thanks for your help.


      Hey hknomansland,

      Both expire 31/03/2021 :)



    Have used their sims a few times and always worked well. Have bought 2 Europe ones for our next “Italian” sojourn?? When ever that may be.
    Cheers guys
    Stay safe.
    See you on the other side



      Thanks GUTSA!

      You too :)



    Hi just want to double confirm…for the New Zealand SIM Cards it says 'never expires'. Does this mean there is no need to activate before a certain date and the SIM could be activated any time and once activated it is valid for 30 days?

    Also calls and texts include the calls and texts to Australia as well?

    What is the provider 2 degree supported by (Two major telecoms are Voda & Spark over there?) and how is the signal strength in regional north island?

    Thank you~


      Hi hermm,

      Correct, you can hold onto it until you travel, indefinitely.

      Once you pop it into your phone the 30 days will start.

      There is 200 minutes of calls to Oz numbers and 2degrees is supported by Vodafone. You can check coverage here

      Let me know if you have any further questions :)



    also wanted to share my experiences with these guy, nothing but excellent service. the sim cards have all been hassle free. its easy to give a positive experience when things all go according to plan. But when things dont go well, the service is exceptional. i still highly recommend these guys.

    im also going to grab some vouchers as i would hate to see a company like this disappear


    Hi Team,

    I received my travel sim cards today thank you.

    One of the sim cards (South East Asia 12 Day Travel SIM EXP 31/03/2021) actually has an expiry date on the sim card listed as activate by 31/12/2020. I was planning to use this card on my South East Asia trip in January 2021. This expiry date is prior to the one advertised, are you aware if this would still work or have i been given the incorrect sim?

    Thanks for any assistance team.



    What's the likelihood of the USA sim being cheaper in the future?

    Looking to buy a gift card.
