Our data-only SIM plans
Plans packed with just data to help you get connected.
Data on the go
Our flexible monthly plans give you the freedom to change your plan month to month. Cancel anytime online. You’re in control.
Our data-only plans include 4G at no extra cost. Enjoy faster downloads, quicker browsing and less time buffering.
Why choose data-only SIM plans?
Our gigabags are SIM-only 4G mobile data plans designed specifically for your dongle, iPad or tablet SIM. These marvellous mobile data plans keep you connected to the Internet while on the move, and give you the flexibility to tether to other devices.
Our gigabags are designed to be used if you have a iPad, tablet or dongle that requires a SIM but you don’t currently have a provider for mobile Internet. With a giffgaff SIM in your device you can enjoy our 4G mobile data plans. And because they’re SIM-only data deals, you can change them each month if you want to and not a contract in sight. Nice one.

Members will need to add top up credit if they need to make call and send texts.
Yes. Members can use their current smart device and will be using 3G data service instead of 4G.
Don’t worry if you’ve used up all your data before your plan expires. You can start using your next gigabag with a new allowance.
If you've used up all your data before your plan expires, a rate of 2p per MB for data will apply. That’s if you choose not to purchase your next gigabag early.
Great news. Tethering is permitted on all our plans that have a limited service.

This bit's important...
The cost of calling numbers starting 084, 087, 09 or 118 is made up of two parts: an 'Access Charge' and a 'Service Charge'. The Access Charge Is set by giffgaff and is 25p per minute (with a minimum 1 minute charge). The Service Charge is set by the company you are calling. These two parts are combined to give the total call cost. More info
Free to giffgaff:
You need to top up at least every 3 months to receive free giffgaff to giffgaff calls if you don't other UK rates will apply as above. The free giffgaff to giffgaff calls last for 60 minutes per call, so you need to hang up and re-dial if you want to keep talking, without being charged.
We also believe that a free number should be just that, so all 0800, 0808 & 0500 numbers really are free.
Unless otherwise stated, call prices include VAT, are quoted by the minute and are charged in one second increment after the first minute. A one minute minimum call charge applies unless otherwise stated. Calls to 055, 056, 070 and 076 numbers are charged in one minute increments.
Extent of United Kingdom:
The prices on this page apply within Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Different rates apply for calls, texts and MMS from the UK to Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and other international destinations. For those rates click here.
