Best Lyca Mobile Deals

As a special offer for October 2023, Lyca Mobile is offering one-month rolling SIM-only plans from just 99p/month for the first 3 months.

All of their plans come with unlimited UK minutes and unlimited UK texts, along with an allowance of 4G & 5G data as follows:

for 3 months, then £4.75/month
for 3 months, then £5.90/month
for 3 months, then £8.50/month
for 3 months, then £6.50/month
for 6 months, then £10/month
for 6 months, then £20/month
for 6 months, then £25/month

The most suitable plan for you will depend on how much data you require:

  • If you’re a light user, you can get 3GB data for 99p or 5GB data for £1.29. Both of these plans offer exceptional value, with a discounted price for the first 3 months. You’ll also get unlimited UK minutes, unlimited UK texts and 50 international minutes included.
  • For most users, we’d recommend getting the 15GB data for £1.80 plan (this will cost £8.50 per month after the first 3 months). According to Ofcom (2021), the average UK mobile user consumes about 5.6GB data per month. Therefore, this should be ample for most users.
  • If you’re a heavy user, you can get 100GB data for £7. With this deal, you’ll benefit from a discounted price for the first 6 months (it’s then £20/month after the first 6 months). Alternatively, you can get unlimited data for £9.99 (£25/month after the first 6 months).

All of these Lyca Mobile SIM-only deals are available with no contract and no credit check. That means you can change or cancel your plan at any time.

Lyca Mobile Features

No Contract & No Credit Check

There’s no contract and no credit check on all of Lyca Mobile’s plans. In the same way you’d pay for other subscriptions such as Spotify and Netflix, you’ll just pay for one month’s usage at a time.

On Lyca Mobile, you also have the flexibility to change or cancel your plan at any time. For instance, you can downgrade to a cheaper plan to save money, or you can upgrade your plan to get more data.

As Lyca Mobile’s service works on a Pay As You Go basis, there’s also no chance of running up unexpected charges on your bill. This is because your monthly payment is capped by default. If you’d like to make any out-of-allowance calls on your SIM card, you’ll need to add some additional Pay As You Go credit to your account.

4G & 5G Coverage From EE

On Lyca Mobile, you’ll have access to 4G and 5G coverage from EE. This means you’ll have 99% UK population coverage on EE’s 4G network, as well as 5G coverage in more than 1,000 UK towns and cities (if you’re using a 5G-ready device).

If you’d like to check the coverage in your area before ordering a SIM card, you can do this by entering your postcode on Lyca Mobile’s online coverage map.

Lyca Mobile’s 5G network is compatible with both iPhone and Android devices. If you’re using an iPhone, you’ll need the iOS 16.4 update to use 5G on Lyca Mobile.

The 99p and £1.29 plans come with 50 international minutes per month. Most of the other plans come with 100 international minutes each month. Lyca Mobile also offers specialist international calling plans if you’re looking for a larger allowance of international minutes.

European Roaming

Many other UK mobile networks will now charge you up to £2.29 per day for using your mobile phone in Europe.

In contrast, Lyca Mobile continues to offer EU roaming at no extra cost on their plans. This includes your minutes and texts, along with the data on your plan subject to the following limits:

  • The 99p plan and £1.29 plan allow you to use up to 1GB data per month in the EU.
  • The £1.99 plan allows you to use up to 1.5GB data per month in the EU.
  • The £1.80 plan allows you to use up to 2GB data per month in the EU.
  • The £5 National Plus plan and £9.99 unlimited plan allow you to use up to 12GB data per month in the EU.
  • The £7 plan allows you to use up to 7GB data per month in the EU.

In addition to the free EU roaming that’s available on all Lyca Mobile plans, Lyca Mobile also offers a range of AloTurka plans that give you inclusive roaming in Turkey.


If you’re looking for a faster way to get connected, Lyca Mobile now offers eSIM capability on their plans.

With eSIM, there’s no need to wait for a physical SIM card to arrive in the post. Instead, you simply need to scan a QR code on your eSIM-ready phone. You’re then connected and you can start using your plan straight away, without the need for a physical SIM card inside your phone.

Lyca Mobile’s eSIM service is compatible with the iPhone 11, the Samsung Galaxy S20, the Google Pixel 3, and later devices. You can see a full list of compatible devices on the Lyca Mobile website. In addition, most eSIM-ready phones allow you to use dual-SIM with eSIM so you can have two phone numbers at the same time on your device (e.g. both your personal phone number and your work phone number).

Keeping Your Phone Number

If you’re switching from another UK mobile network, it’s a straightforward process to transfer your phone number to Lyca Mobile.

Start by ordering your new SIM-only plan from the Lyca Mobile website. For most people, we’d recommend the 15GB plan at £1.80 per month for 3 months. Alternatively, you can choose from a range of data allowances, from 3GB per month up to unlimited data.

Once you’ve ordered your new Lyca Mobile SIM card, you can get a PAC Code from your old mobile network. This is available through your mobile network’s website or app, or by texting PAC to 65075.

Once you’ve received and activated your new Lyca Mobile SIM card, you’ll be able to submit your PAC Code through this page on the Lyca Mobile website. Your phone number will then be moved over within 2 working days.

For a step-by-step guide on how to transfer your phone number to Lyca Mobile, please select your current mobile network from the drop down menu below:

  • Be very very very careful with this network. There is tons of small print regarding their offers.

    The other red flag is their customer service. It won’t be a case of IF when something goes wrong but WHEN. It took my wife 2 weeks of calls, being hung up on when the agent didn’t know what to do or the call was dragging on, emails back and forth before she could join the network.

    First they send out an email with a QR code to set up your esim. The first email never arrived. A follow up email is sent with a link containing instructions how to activate the esim. The link didn’t resolve.
    Due to all the issues my wife tried to order a physical SIM only to be told that because she attempted to set up an esim and set up an account on their website, she was no longer able to get most of their offers.
    The next thing to go wrong was the number port failed resulting in more calls to try and get it resolved.

    Between the downright incompetentence of this network, the completely useless customer service reps and the dodgy way their offers are worded (implys one thing but really means something else or the layout of their site makes it difficult to actually understand what they are offering) avoid this network at all costs.
