Unlimited Data in Paris

Unlimited Data in Paris

No doubt you have trawled the internet searching for data options in Paris that isn’t going to break the bank.

Join the club.

I have tried just about everything under the sun.

Including a month in Paris without mobile data, restricting me to free wi-fi and I was not a happy traveller.

Another time, frustrated, I loaded up my phone with €50.00 of data and decided to hang the expense only to discover two days later I had ran out of credit.

That was until I discovered Insidr.  Well to be honest they found me and offered a free trial.

With the promise of a bright shiny new LG smart phone, loaded with not only the usual apps but also their own, unlimited data, hot-spot capabilities and even free delivery.

Sceptical but intrigued, I agreed to give it a test run.

Sounds too good to be true?  Nope, it is the real deal!

With so many unfavourable options out there all designed to relieve us of our hard earned cash, leaving behind many disgruntled travellers, I am surprised someone didn’t come up with this simple yet clever concept earlier.


Let me take you through it and give you a little insight into the team behind this brainchild.

using your mobile phone in paris


Widely travelled Parisians and brother and sister team Ben and Nina saw a gaping hole, whereby unsuspecting tourists to Paris were being unnecessarily fleeced and taken advantage of simply because they wanted connectivity to add to their Parisian holiday experience.

Whether it be the exorbitant rates charged for mobile and data usage or for many, especially Americans, unable to unlock their phones.  Therefore in late 2015 Insidr was born, with some pleasant added surprises.


(I hope they don’t mind me adding this photo I snapped of them when I returned the device but their enthusiasm and genuine endeavour to help tourists enjoy Paris is infectious)


Apart from the usual apps also included but not limited to is; WhatsApp, Google Maps, City Mapper, G7 English Speaking Taxi Service and their own specially designed applications with the tourist in mind.

Their recommended cafés, restaurants, bars etc which can be searched by areas are second to none that only a local would know about, including tips on the best way to avoid lines and the lesser known entrances into museums and what we all really want:

  • LG smartphone in a soft pouch (which can be blue-toothed to your own device)

  • Unlimited calls

  • Unlimited 4G data

  • Wifi Hotspot

  • Insured Against Theft & Damage Included

And a very special and unique feature that I love, The Paris Angels.

If you encounter a problem, need someone to book a restaurant for you, need a nightspot recommendation for example or some general advice, you can contact one of their many ‘Paris Angels’ via WhatsApp and an Angel will promptly respond to your request.

And all of this will be presented to you together with instruction booklets, postcards a charger etc., in a stylish box that would rival Apple’s packaging.

That’s it, as soon as you arrive in Paris, you are connected.


Although Insidr offered me their device for a one week free trial, which turned into three weeks, it was merely to test how user friendly it was for a non Parisian but I have to admit, I didn’t want to return it.

No wonder they take a deposit to ensure its return.

Apart from the free use for three weeks, I am not affiliated with them in any way, or receive any kick back or gifts.

I am simply so excited to finally find a way to have unlimited data when I visit Paris without it costing me an arm and a leg and thought you may find it useful too.

    Adele Thank you for your help in understanding the Paris Metro. I can get lost easily in my own city of Perth Australia so I amazed myself getting around Paris thanks to your easy to follow information. Also the scams info was reassuring. Thanks again.

      Hi Nigel
      you are not alone there, I get lost too. I am so glad you found it useful and thanks so much for leaving a comment, getting lost is not fun and yes, the scams are good to be aware of so you can avoid them. thanks again.

    Thank you, Adele, for the Insidr.Paris information.  My carrier, Verizon, has exorbitant fees for traveling abroad; then, the service often fails–right when I’m lost or late for a tour.  I calculated the cost of Insidr for my next visit and it will be a third of what I paid last September to Verizon.  The additional features look excellent, too. 

    I’ve spent my whole morning enjoying your tips and insights here at Paris Adele.  Love it!  Many thanks!

      Hello Deborah
      thank you so much for taking the time to leave this thoughtful message, very kind of you and so glad you discovered Insidr. As you would have read, it took a lot of time, effort and money before I discovered them too but their service is second to none and yes the other apps and their support is fabulous. I wouldn’t go to Paris without using them now. I have been a happy customer for quite a few years.

      I am so glad that you have enjoyed reading my blog. I am not sure if you follow me on facebook but I post daily photos and tips on there too.

      Happy travels et merci

    Dear Adele:
    I can’t find that Insidr.Paris cellphone & data offer. I browsed around on the website but I can’t find it. By the way, the Insidr.Paris, using your link opens in the Korean language. (It looks like Korean to me.) Can you help, please?

    I just began looking at your website and it looks fabulous. Merci Beaucoup.
