Looking at what you can get on SIM only with giffgaff this May, our best-rated deal would be their 1‑month plan below, which comes with 25GB data, plus unlimited minutes and texts for £15 a month:

Compared to giffgaff's other deals, this comes out among the best. But it's worth knowing you can get a lower price elsewhere, even on other providers that use the O2 network. Here are other networks you can beat it on:

For people who don't need that much data, we'd say this is one of giffgaff's best deals on SIM only this month too. It's a 1‑month plan, comes with 20GB data, unlimited minutes and texts for £12 a month:

It might be one of giffgaff's best deals on SIM only but you can get a lower price for a similar plan on other providers, even ones that use the O2 network. See the networks with cheaper plans here:

If that'd be too much data for you, have a look at giffgaff's 15GB SIM below at £10 a month, as it's another good deal. It's on a 1‑month plan and comes with 15GB data, unlimited minutes and texts:

There are other networks charging less for a SIM with 15GB data or more but this is the best current option with a provider that uses O2. Here's which other networks can beat it:

What we think about giffgaffRead our full review

As we show in our full review of giffgaff, we like that you get full access to O2’s network, including 5G, for a much lower price than being on O2 directly. You also get a decent free WiFi hotspot scheme.

giffgaff market their SIM only deals (their “goodybags”) as monthly bundles of minutes, texts and data with no contracts. Compare their plans here to find the best possible deal.

Their best value plans are their mid-range data deals. For these they work out as one of the cheapest providers on the O2 network (alongside Sky Mobile and Tesco Mobile).

giffgaff are pretty much a no-frills network. They do offer £5 free credit on your first £10 top up and if you get a friend to join giffgaff both you and your friend will get £5 free credit. They also offer inclusive EU roaming as standard.

Your giffgaff SIM will be delivered within 2 working days, and you can get it delivered to the EU within 3-5 working days or even to anywhere else in the world around 5+ days after ordering. They don’t offer eSIMs (see the networks that do).

It’s your right as a customer to get your SIM refunded within the first 14 days of receiving it. But you’ll only get back what you haven’t used, so if you used up a little bit of data you won’t get a full refund. Here’s how you do it.

Since you’re paying for your minutes, texts and data up front then you won’t have to pass a credit check for their SIM only plans. You’ll just have to give them some details so they know who you are.

If you want to switch to giffgaff from another network while keeping your old number you can do so by requesting a PAC from your old provider to give to giffgaff. You can read their instructions on how this works here.
