Learn about SIMs and Ongoing Costs

Free GPS Tracker SIM with Cheap Ongoing Costs

Our GPS Trackers require SIM cards because they function like small mobile phones - able to receive and send texts (e.g. locations) and allow for two-way calling. You'll look after your SIM credit yourself by logging into your own online account.

No Hidden Costs, Fees or Subscriptions

You don't pay any more fees or subscription costs to us once you have purchased your GPS Tracker! You will just pay for your own SIM usage (the rates are outlined below).

Typical Usage = £1-5 per month

If you use about 5-10 texts (whether locations or alerts) a week, you'll only spend about £2 per month. It shouldn't cost more than £5 - we recommend starting with Pay As You Go credit, see how your usage goes in the first month, then switch to the £5 Goodybag if you need to.

Texting or Calling the GPS Tracker

When you text for a location reply, or call the device, it will be at standard rates from your mobile. Its not a premium rate or anything like that! Its just like texting/phoning a friend.

Please remember that the SIM network (GiffGaff, or whoever you happen to use) is a third party company completely separate from us.

If you have any specific issues about your SIM card that are related to the network (e.g. credit, payment, lost or damaged SIMs, lost account information) then you should get in touch directly with the SIM company.
