Lebara Mobile 12 Month Plans
In the UK, Lebara Mobile now offers 12-month SIM-only plans, starting from £4.50 per month. You’ll benefit from a 10% discount compared to their normal one-month rolling plans, plus a fixed price for 12 months with no mid-term price rises.

The 12-month plans are available to both new and existing customers on the Lebara Mobile network.
Lebara Mobile Features
Save 10% On 12 Month Plans
When you sign up to a 12-month plan on Lebara Mobile, you’ll save an extra 10% compared to their normal one-month rolling plans. This means, for instance, the 5GB data plan is available for just £4.50 per month. This compares to a normal price of £5 per month if you were to choose a one-month rolling plan.
If you’re unsure how much data you need each month, you can still sign up to a 12-month plan on Lebara. This is because Lebara Mobile will allow you to switch to another 12-month plan if you like within the first 30 days (e.g. if you find you need more data or less data on your plan).
No Mid-Term Price Rises
Another benefit of signing up to a Lebara 12-month plan is their promise of “no mid-term price rises”. This means the price you pay and the allowances you receive are fixed for the 12-month period.
In contrast, most other mobile networks now have an annual price increase built in to their plan. This can be as much as CPI+3.9% (the rate of inflation plus an extra 3.9% each year). At present, this is forecast to give a price rise of around 7% early next year (this equivalent to an extra 70p/month on a £10 plan or an extra £1.40/month on a £20 plan).
No Credit Check
There’s no need to undergo a credit check when you sign up to a 12-month plan on Lebara. There’s also no need to set up a Direct Debit on your UK bank account – you simply provide them with your credit card, debit card or PayPal account details. Lebara will automatically take the payment for your plan at the start of each month from your saved card or PayPal account details.
As Lebara’s service works on a pre-paid basis, it isn’t possible to run up unexpected charges outside of your inclusive allowance. If you want to use your Lebara SIM card for additional calls or texts outside of your allowance, you can top-up your account with additional Pay As You Go credit.
4G & 5G Coverage From Vodafone
On Lebara Mobile, you’ll benefit from 4G and 5G coverage from Vodafone. This gives you 99% population coverage on 4G. You can also access 5G coverage in 100 UK towns & cities if you’re using a 5G-ready phone on Lebara.
Before you sign up for Lebara Mobile, it’s worth double-checking the coverage in your area. You can do this by entering your postcode on Vodafone’s online coverage map:

Inclusive International Minutes
You’ll get an inclusive allowance of international minutes included on your 12-month Lebara Mobile plan. This will be either 100 international minutes per month, 500 international minutes per month or unlimited international minutes depending on your plan.
The inclusive international minutes on your Lebara Mobile plan can be used for calling phone numbers in the following 41 destinations:
- Canada (landlines only)
- Czech Republic
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- Republic of Korea
- United States
If you’d like to call a phone number in any other country, you’ll pay Lebara Mobile’s international Pay As You Go rates.
Unlimited Data Plans
If you’re looking for an unlimited data plan, it’s possible to get this for £22.50 per month. This gives you unlimited UK data, unlimited UK minutes, unlimited UK texts and 100 international minutes.
If you regularly make international calls on your phone, you can upgrade this to a plan with unlimited international minutes for £27 per month.
According to Lebara Mobile, there are no fair usage policies or data caps for unlimited data usage in the UK. There is, however, a limit on how much data you’re able to use abroad at no extra cost when travelling in Europe (this is 14.1GB per month on the £22.50 plan and 16.9GB per month on the £27 plan). In addition, you can also roam at no extra cost when travelling In India, subject to a 10GB per month and 200 minutes fair use limit.
Keeping Your Phone Number
Start by ordering your new 12-month plan on the Lebara Mobile website. Once you’ve done that, you can request a PAC Code from your old network. You can get a PAC through your mobile network’s website or app, or by texting PAC to 65075.
Once your Lebara Mobile SIM card has arrived in the post, you can submit your PAC Code online through this form on Lebara’s website. This will schedule the transfer of your phone number (normally for the next working day). You’ll also get an extra 5GB of data as a one-off reward for doing this.
