Anguilla is a British overseas territory in the Caribbean, lying east of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and directly north of Saint Martin. It’s very popular with tourists looking to explore the Caribbean and to relax under the sun. Using your phone there can work out to be quite costly, so to keep expenses down why not switch to a local SIM card to take advantage of better plans, deals and tariffs? Anguilla has a prepaid SIM card deal for travellers, and you can get 1GB for as little as XCD31 (£9.80). So, whether you’re planning a quick break, an extended trip or an exploration, check out the best SIM card options available on finder.com/uk.

This English-speaking island is a British colony, and there are two main telco operators: Flow and Digicel. Both operators have been tried and tested by both locals and international travelers, and can be trusted. Operators go through a strict approval process before being allowed to operate in the country and each competes with the other to offer the best deals. The island has good network coverage in the main populated areas and a healthy overall speed. Passports must be shown to purchase the SIM cards. We’ve highlighted the best deals below.
Flow is the main provider and Digicel follows closely behind, so each has about a 50% market share. Both providers offer services on 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE platforms. The best coverage is in the main towns and cities, and service in other areas might be unreliable, whatever network provider you use. There are several plans available that include data and reasonably-priced international calls, and they are probably cheaper than using your home phone. Below, we have listed the two providers available in Anguilla and the best deals they offer during your stay.
Flow is the main provider, and it has a wide reach across the island, although service can suffer once you hit the shore. Flow offers 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE services. Prepaid SIM cards can be purchased from official stores or approved resellers. Credit can also be picked up from the same retailers. If you wish to use a 4G service then make sure you ask for that specific SIM card. Prepaid SIM cards can be purchased for XCD25 and passports must be shown to purchase the SIMs.
Credit can be purchased in varying amounts between XCD5 and XCD200, from supermarkets, gas stations and official stores. Top-ups are valid for 90 days. Dial *120#. to check your balance.
The standard default data rate is charged at XCD0.41 perMB. The following data packs can also be added by dialling the appropriate number in the right-hand column.

Digicel is the second largest provider on the island. Service is good but can suffer once you hit the coast. It offers 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE services. Prepaid SIM cards can be purchased from official stores or approved resellers. Credit can also be picked up from the same retailers. If you wish to use a 4G service then make sure you ask for that specific SIM card from the retailer. Prepaid SIM cards can be purchased for XCD20 – XCD25. Passports must be shown to purchase the SIMs. Dial *120# to check your balance.
The following “4G” data plans can be added:
|75MB||Valid for 1 day||XCD4|
|250MB||Valid for 7 days||XCD15|
|1GB||Valid for 30 days||XCD30|
WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are available when you activate one of the above-mentioned plans.
Digicel also sells a “Roam Like You’re Home” option which can be purchased for XCD27, valid for 7 days. This service will allow customers to use Digicel services in the US, Canada and other Caribbean locations at no extra cost. Dial *153# and follow the instructions to activate. The standard default data rate is charged at XCD0.40 per MB while roaming.

While it’s well known for reviews, booking hotels, flights and holidays, TripAdvisor also has many user comments that can help guide you through which SIM cards have been tried and tested in Anguilla.
“We purchased one from Digicel and it was $10. You can purchase prepaid minutes at Digicel or buy the prepaid cards anywhere. They are sold all over the island.”
“It’s handy to have an Anguilla phone # to deal with the calls to people, restaurants, etc. on the island.”
“Do you make a lot of calls while on the island? If you don’t, just use your own phone, turn off the roaming and connect to Wi-Fi.”
Flow and Digicel require you to have a SIM-unlocked, GSM-compatible international phone. To double check you have this option, or whether it’s possible to unlock your device, contact your provider before you set off on your travels.
