Telephone

Albania's country phone code is 355. Mobile coverage is excellent, though it's limited in very remote areas (though most places have some form of connection including Theth).

Mobile Phones

Albania has good mobile coverage though it can be spotty in mountain areas. Local SIM cards can be used in European and Australian phones. Other phones must be set to roaming to work – be wary of roaming charges

More Information

It’s very straightforward to buy a SIM card with mobile data from any mobile phone/internet provider. Prepaid SIM cards cost around 500 lekë and include credit. Special two-week 'tourist' packages are available. These include phone calls, text messages and internet data.
