Tim SIM card at Milan Airport

Do any of the current stores at airport sell the prepaid TIM SIM card?

If there is no store for this in airport, where can I buy this?

Thanks!!

Hi saurabhbatra

in Milan there are 3 airports!

There is a TIM shop at Linate airport at the national departure (1st floor).

According to Malpensa website there is a TIM shop in the check in area. Go to: www.milanomalpensa1.eu/en/en-media/en-news…

Please note: SIM registration is required by the Italian government prior to service activation. This can be done using your passport when purchasing a SIM card.

This is a good article you might find useful smh.com.au/travel/…ixzz1sA7Cbzhl

Thanks Carmen. Just a quick follow up:

Will I be able to access this when I arrive or only at departure as I depart the next day from terminal 2 and this seems to be in the check in area of terminal 1 and any chance of confirming the opening hours of this shops.

Hi saurabhbatra

I don't remember if there is a TIM shop at Malpensa Terminal 2. Terminal 2 is totally distant from Terminal 1. The are connected by a transfer bus.

By the way I still don't understand why you need a TIM card when you are leaving...

I need it because I come back in three days and stay for 8 more days.

Actually what I want to know is that if I arrive at terminal 1 can I access this shop at the time of arrival.

Hi saurabhbatra

yes you can access to this shop at your arrival at terminal 1.

Ask to the other shops staff where it is.

Have a nice trip!

I am traveling to the Milan Malpensa airport and I want to get a SIM card there, which provides me with telephone, text and 4G internet service. I will be in Italy for 2 weeks. Can I get a temporary SIM card at the airport? Does SIM allow me to use my mobile as a hot spot, so I can use my tablet in the car? What is the cost?

Thanks in advance for any assistance given me!

yes you can get a temporary SIM card at the airport.

it's not the SIM to allow to use the mobile as a hot spot, but the mobile features themselves.

costs depends on the operators you choose.
