Red face What to do with the vodafone sim card - 30-01-2012, 22:21

Fellow travelers,

I recently went to portugal to ring in the new year. I bought a vodafone sim card to stay in touch with fam and friends. I don't know what is vodafone policy, unfortunately the booklet that was provided to me at the vodafone store in Terminal 1 of the airport is all in portuguese. On my departure date, the vodafone store at the airport was closed as it was 4am. Now I'm stuck with a sim card that has 22 euros left of credit.

My question is, can I return the sim card to vodafone to get the 22 euros back? If not, what can I do with this sim card to get those 22 euros?

Any information and suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Thank you kindly.

SweetYam

In germany you can get any german prepaid SIM payed out. I dont know how it is in Portugal.
One option would be to sell it to someone who still can use it.

I think you will find the best that Voda can manage is to transfer the money to another Voda Portugal card, or - possibly - allow you to transfer the credit to another Voda group card account (e.g. Vodafone UK).

TBH I would stick it on eBay and sell it to another traveller visiting that country.

THis strategy works for me with rarely visited countries...
