Lycamobile AloTurka Plans

If you’re looking to use your mobile phone in Turkey this summer, or if you’d like to make low-cost international calls to phone numbers in Turkey (+90), Lycamobile UK now offers a range of AloTurka plans that start from only £15 per month.

The AloTurka plans are available on a Pay As You Go basis with no contract and no credit check required. You’ll also get an inclusive allowance of roaming data to use in Turkey & the EU.

The following table shows the AloTurka plans from Lycamobile:

All of the AloTurka plans are a one-off purchase and last for up to 30 days. When you order your plan, you’ll be able to choose between a physical SIM card and eSIM.

  • If you choose a physical SIM card, this will need to be sent out to you through the post. You can expect it to take up to 5 working days for your SIM card to arrive, though it will normally arrive faster than that. You can use a physical SIM card inside any unlocked mobile phone.
  • If you choose an eSIM, this will issued to you straight away by email. You can therefore start to use the eSIM straight away. In addition, you’ll be able to use the eSIM to activate the dual-SIM function on your phone. This means the Lycamobile AloTurka eSIM can work alongside your existing SIM card at the same time. If you choose this option, you’ll need an eSIM-compatible phone.

Depending on the plan you choose, there’s a limit on how much data you’re able to use abroad in Turkey & the EU. This limit is 5GB on the £15 AloTurka S plan, 10GB on the £20 AloTurka M plan, and 15GB on the £25 AloTurka L plan.

The average UK smartphone user consumes about 4.5GB data per month (Ofcom, 2021). This equates to approximately 1GB of data per week. For this reason, the AloTurka S plan should be suitable for most users as you can use up to 5GB of data per month in Turkey & the EU.

If you do use up your entire data roaming allowance, you can add an extra 7GB of roaming data for £10 (AloTurka data add-on S) or an extra 15GB of roaming data for £15 (AloTurka data add-on M). Both of these add-ons are available as a one-off purchase and will require you to have an existing AloTurka plan.

Alternatives to AloTurka

On most UK mobile networks, you’ll pay in the region of £6 per day to use your mobile phone in Turkey. For this reason, it can be advantageous getting an AloTurka SIM card from Lycamobile to save money on your trip abroad to Turkey.

An alternative option could be to buy a local SIM card on arrival in Turkey. Prices vary based on the store you visit and sometimes based on negotiation, but you’ll normally get a larger allowance of data on a local SIM (often 20GB data or more). You’ll also get a local phone number in Turkey (+90), though you’ll need to register your SIM card with the Turkish authorities before you’re able to use it.

Another option is to get a data-only eSIM from Airalo (Merhaba). For instance, you’ll pay US$8 (approximately £6.40) for 3GB data on Airalo. However, you’ll need to use your normal SIM card for calling and texting (for which international roaming rates will apply).

If you’re using a Lycamobile AloTurka SIM card, you’ll get 99% population coverage in the UK. This is provided by O2’s 4G and 5G networks.

To double-check the coverage in your area, enter your postcode on Lycamobile’s online coverage map:

You’ll get access to 4G coverage when you’re travelling abroad in Turkey & the EU. This is provided by Lycamobile’s partner networks abroad.
