In MyLebara you can see when you can renew your subscription. You can do that immediately online. You can renew up to 4 months before your 2-year subscription expires. You can also switch from a monthly rolling subscription to a 24-month subscription. In both cases, you get the first 2 months of Sim Only for free. Of course, you can also renew at one of our retail outlets.


Do you want to cancel your Sim Only subscription and transfer your number to another provider? If so, then you do not need to cancel your subscription. Simply ask your new provider to transfer your number. They will take care of the rest.

Cancel without keeping your number

If you want to cancel your Sim Only subscription without transferring your number to another provider, you can take care of this yourself in MyLebara. Your SIM card and phone number will then automatically be switched back to Lebara Prepaid. After that, you can top up credit any time, if you wish.


You will pay a buy-out amount if you cancel your Sim Only subscription before your contract has expired. This includes the amount you owe for the remaining months of your contract, as well as monthly costs and any unpaid bills that you still owe. Contact our customer service to organise this.

Have you (almost) used all your bundle? You can easily buy new data bundles and extra minutes online or using the app.

If you have used all your bundle, you will be charged at the out-of-bundle rate for any services you use. This rate is 9 cents per minute (calling), 12 cents per text message and 1 cent per MB of data. You will be charged at this rate until you reach an out-of-bundle limit of 10 euros. After you reach this 10 euro limit, you can no longer call, send text messages or use data. Of course, you can still receive incoming calls and text messages.

We always send you a text message to inform you when you have used 80% and 100% of your minutes, texts or data bundle.

Inside the EU (plus Switzerland and the United Kingdom), you do not pay any extra costs for calling and sending text messages to other EU countries or using mobile internet. We always send you a text message to inform you when you have used 80% and 100% of your minutes, texts or data bundle. Have you used all your bundle? If so, then the out-of-bundle rate will apply to any services you use. You will be charged at this rate until you reach an out-of-bundle limit of 10 euros. After you reach this 10 euro limit, you can no longer call, send text messages or use data. Of course, you can still receive incoming calls and text messages.

Outside the EU, other rates apply. You can find these here.


Your invoice is paid through automated billing (direct debit). The amount is deducted from your bank account around the 23rd of each month. You can always view your invoices in MyLebara.

On your first bill, you may be charged more than the amount you pay for your standard monthly plan. This is because at Lebara you always pay one month in advance. If you've started your plan midway through the month, you'll see a full monthly amount (plus activation costs) charged to your bank account. Don’t worry though: on your next bill, we’ll calculate the days in which your plan was not yet activated and subtract them from the second invoice amount.
