Are you a cross-border commuter living in France, Belgium or Germany and working in Luxembourg? Then you're probably wondering whether you should take out a mobile package in the Grand Duchy. If so, which one should you choose? All the answers are in this article!
At Switchr we know the subject well. We moved to Luxembourg a few years ago. Due to the high prices of mobile packages in Luxembourg, we initially opted to keep our foreign package.
But we soon realised thathaving a Luxembourg number is a real assetfor several reasons...
If you work in the Grand Duchy, you are likely to use your personal phone to make some business calls. In principle, this is not a problem, as you probably have a package that includes unlimited calls throughout Europe.
Except that, as in any country, Luxembourgers are wary of foreign telephone numbers. And when you want to do business, you need the person you are talking to to answer the phone.
If you want to improve your image with professionals, we advise you to take a Luxembourg mobile package.
In Luxembourg, a large part of life is spent with colleagues. 47% of the population is expatriate This means that you build your social network at work. That's probably why there are so many bars and after parties in the Grand Duchy!
Although some kiosks offering free public WiFi are installed in the city, it's still better to have Internet access on your mobile wherever you are.
If you go out a lot, like to show videos to your colleagues or listen to music on your way home: we advise you to take a package in the Grand Duchy. If not, then yes: keep your French, Belgian or German number 😊.
When you are looking for a flat or a job, you will quickly notice that demand is very high in Luxembourg. You need something to set you apart from the competition.
For all these reasons, we advise you to opt for a Luxembourg phone number. But not at any price!
In Luxembourg, there are a handful of operators and great disparities in prices between mobile packages. You can find packages for €10 or €20, and others that cost up to €100 per month. It's best to compare offers before choosing the right one!
There are several €0 mobile packages (although the price is misleading, as you will pay for your consumption). In short, you will have a SIM card, a number...and that's it! You can be called for free from Europe, but you will be charged for every call you make. The same goes for mobile data.
How difficult it is to control your expenses with such offers, especially when you are a cross-border commuter and travelling between two countries, we do not recommend these packages.
Some offers include unlimited calls to Luxembourg, Europe, the USA and China. They also include a very large volume of data abroad (from 60 GB to 100 GB per month, or even unlimited in certain areas!). Most of these packages also include numerous options (unlimited access to the national press, subscriptions to certain streaming platforms, etc.).
These offers are generally expensive, but some suppliers stand out with very attractive offers. We advise you to consult the tab "International" of this comparative table to see our selection of the best offers at the moment.
The best value for money offers usually include :
These mobile packages cost 40 € to 50 € per month. For this price, you will have a Luxembourg number, and you will be able to make calls and watch videos in Luxembourg without worries.
If you don't have unlimited data, be sure to turn off 4G or 5G when you get home, and switch your phone to home WiFi!
