Simply enter in your postcode or browse their interactive map to find out which networks cover you.
giffgaff doesn’t offer any contracts, so you’re free to go whenever you choose. They offer SIM only deals where you can choose your monthly giffgaff package or ‘goodybag’ which contain different amounts of data, minutes and texts or they also offer a pay as you go SIM plan.
Each goodybag ranges in size and you can swap them each month or set it to automatically renew at the end of each month. You can also cancel your goodybag at anytime.
If you have any further queries about which mobile plan is right for you visit the giffgaff website for further information.

After this you can top up online using your credit/debit card or you can purchase a top-up voucher from any shop supporting giffgaff or o2. Charges will apply if you run over the allocated amount of data, calls and texts in your SIM plan.

*speed restrictions apply after 6B of data usage.
The amount of data you require depends on how much internet you will be using on your mobile each month.
It is difficult to determine an exact correlation between data and internet usage but approximately 1GB would allow you to view either around 3000 web pages, 10 000 emails or spend 4 hours streaming videos.
Giffgaff does not offer any add on services, however if you require more minutes or data you can buy a new goodybag or you can start your next goodybag early. You can only purchase a goodybag early when you have less than 5 minutes or 5MB’s left in your current goodybag.
