Where to charge a Lebara mobile sim near Marseille airport?

We plan on spending a couple of weeks in Provence this October, and will be landing in Marseille airport.

We're looking for a local mobile sim to purchase, and since we don't have a European debit card, it seems Lebara <http://www.lebara.fr/boutique/internet> is our best option.

However, apparently we can't order a pre-paid Lebara sim card, and we need to fill it up at some convenience store.

Does anyone know where we can do this, in the vicinity of Marseille's AIRPORT?

(We don't plan to go into Marseille itself).

Thanks!

P.S. If anyone has a different recommendation for a local mobile operator offering sims with web surf plan at reasonable prices, I would love to hear :) .

If you have a Lebara SIM, you can recharge it either on line or at any magazine store, tabac, grocery store, Monoprix, Auchan, Carrefour, Darty or at many cafés.

Try LeFrench mobile. That's what we use and you can recharge it online or on the phone. We ordered ours from the USA and got it in the mail. You do have to make the first call in France to start the service. After that you can use it nearly anyplace and you can keep your number for 1.40 Euro a month. We've had ours for a few years. http://www.lefrenchmobile.com/

If you want a SIM card at the airport, get an Orange card. It's cheap and can be recharged online, on the phone or at most grocery stores and tabacs. We used to use them but you can't keep your number unless you use it every six months. We always used a standard credit card (no chip; no debit) to get it. You could pay cash. It's only 10 euros for the card and some time. There will be an Orange store at the airport.

Enjoy your trip.
