Copenhagen Airport

The airport in Copenhagen is rather small and not really a big hub for traveling in Europe, though there are still a bunch of direct intercontinental flights arriving from North America, Middle East and Asia. There is only one Arrival Hall which makes thing easier! The arrival hall is located in Terminal 3.

As soon as you walk out of arrivals you basically find yourself in the heart of Copenhagen Airport and shops and public transport are right there.

When you have read my article about buying a sim card in Denmark in 2022 you already know that none of the 4 mobile internet operators in Denmark are actually selling prepaid sim cards for tourists. Yep that is right! Not a single mobile internet provider has prepaid packages for sale.

Denmark is the first country where I found out that the market for prepaid sim cards is that complicated. Therefore you won't find a store             n of the mobile internet operators But don't worry there are still some options.

There are 3 places to buy a sim card for Denmark at Copenhagen Airport: WH Smith shop and the 7-Eleven in the arrivals hall and a sim card vending machine at the baggage claim hall.

There are no mobile phone shops at Copenhagen airport. You can’t really expect any service from the above convenient stores and of course neither from the sim card vending machine. 

Good thing at least is that people in Denmark speak very good English and are very friendly and helpful. Staff at these convenience stores are no experts in sim cards, so difficult questions like if sim cards include EU roaming, etc could not be answered. When traveling onwards in Europe, Denmark sim cards are a no-go. Check my list of the best sim cards for traveling in Europe in 2022.

Sim card vending machine in baggage hall

Even before you collect your luggage you can already buy a sim card for traveling in Europe. The sim card vending machines at Copenhagen Airport sells Lebara and Lycamobile sim cards. There is obviously no service at all and when buying these Denmark sim cards at Copenhagen Airport.

You will need to activate the sim card yourself and find a shop where you can top up as the sim cards come without anything. The sim cards costs between $5 and $8. Top up can be done at most 7-Elevens and convenience stores. All too complicated, NOT recommended.

The 7-Eleven shop is on your way to Terminal 2, so as soon as you walk out of arrivals turn left and keep on walking until you pass the Information desk and then it will be on your left hand side, just 1-minute walk.

At 7-Eleven Copenhagen Airport they only sell one sim card for tourists in Denmark: Lebara sim card - 49 Krones ($7,50).

The Lebara sim card comes with 10 Krones credit just for calling. Which basically means you will have to buy extra bundles for data separately. These are the bundles you can buy on top up with and you can buy them directly from the 7-Eleven cashier. Lebara operates on the Telia and Telenor networks in Denmark.

The LEBARA 10 TIMER 60GB for 99 Krones ($15) sounds like a great deal. That means 2GB per day and 10 hours of calling for $15. Great if you stay just in Denmark, but…

All the Lebara Denmark data bundles are ONLY valid in Denmark and NOT in the rest of the EU! This totally sucks if you are on a Euro trip and therefore I would NOT recommend buying a Lebara sim card in Denmark for your trip to Europe.

Oister sim card at the WH Smith shop

The WH Smith shop at Copenhagen Airport is easy to find as it is right in front of you when you walk out of arrivals and across from the DSB ticket machines where you buy your train ticket to get to Copenhagen city center.

At the WH Smith Copenhagen Airport they only sell the Oister sim card. I had never heard of this brand, neither when I researched the best Denmark sim card. It works exactly the same as the Lebara sim card they sell at the 7-Eleven, but cheaper! The Oister sim card operates on the network of Three mobile network.

The Oister sim card at Copenhagen Airport cost 49 Krones ($7,50) and comes with 50 Krones credit. This credit stands for 100MB data or 100 minutes calling time. Obviously not enough and therefore I went online to their website and figured it out for you. I used Google translate as their website is in Danish only. This is what I found.

For 89 Krones ($13) you can get 25GB data in Denmark, 5GB data in Europe and 5 hours calling time. Check out the latest offers for Denmark sim cards on the Oister website.

Best Denmark sim card at Copenhagen Airport

Looking at the above it is an easy conclusion that Oister is the best sim card for Denmark at Copenhagen Airport in 2022!

You can buy the Oister sim card in the WH Smith shop located right in front of you when you walk out into the arrivals hall.

The Oister sim card you can use all over Europe and the Lebara packages are only valid in Denmark. I am not sure how long you are intended to stay in Denmark, but it is a really small country.
