From all the options giffgaff have got available this February on SIM only, we think this £10 18‑month deal is their best. For your £10 a month, you get 25GB data alongside unlimited minutes and texts:

There are other networks charging less for a SIM with 25GB data or more but this is the best current option with a provider that uses O2. Here are other networks you can beat it on:

For people who don't need that much data, we think this 2GB is one of the best SIM only plans on giffgaff too. It's on a 1‑month deal, comes with unlimited minutes and texts - all for £6 a month:

It can actually be beaten on price if you don't need your SIM to be with a provider that uses the O2. If you do need that, it is the cheapest SIM with 2GB data or more. See the networks with cheaper plans here:

For more data, we also think this £8 giffgaff SIM is one of their best options. It comes with 6GB data, unlimited minutes and texts on a 18‑month deal:

If you're open to joining other networks than giffgaff, you can actually get a similar deal for less, even with providers whose SIMs also use the O2 network. Here's which other networks can beat it:

In our full review of giffgaff we said we like that they offer full access to O2’s 5G/4G/3G/2G network at much lower costs than joining O2 directly. They also have a nice free WiFi hotspot scheme on top of that.

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.

giffgaff still offer inclusive EU roaming on all plans at no extra cost. And you can get £5 free credit on your first £10 top up or bring a friend onto giffgaff to both get £5 free credit.

You’ll receive your SIM package within 2 working days. And you can even have it delivered in the EU within 3-5 days and beyond the EU around 5+ days after you order. giffgaff don’t offer eSIMs (these networks do).

If you’re not happy with your SIM you can return it to get a refund within 14 days. But you only get a refund on what you haven’t used, so you won’t get a full refund if you used some data (read more here).

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’ll have to request a PAC from your old provider to give to giffgaff. You can read their instructions on how this works here.
