Where are you going exactly? The best option is to buy a simcard in the first country, and freely roam without fees in other countries.

If you're starting in the UK Three Mobile pre-paid are hard to beat for value and you can use it across Europe, as well as many other popular destinations across the world.

SIM Options dot com are great. Always get a 4G Data with Calls SIM card or 3G Data only SIM card for Europe. Value money wise too.

I've used simcorner in the past and have found them to be of decent value. I think they run off the 3 network.

Has anyone tried Lebara? I have a UK one that I would like to use in Europe.

I just visited Ireland and the UK from Canada. EIR in Ireland have a 20 Euro prepay plan for 15GB data that includes 5.5 GB data anywhere in the EU plus unlimited calls, requiring topup after 40 days, or when allowance is used up if sooner. I mail-ordered the SIM before going. They usually wouldn't send it overseas but I like to think that my home address on Dublin St helped. But I am sure that there are lots of good deals from other suppliers in EU countries. The EU regulations which eliminated extortionate roaming pricing have helped greatly.

Have you considered the Vodafone Australia $5 roaming - uses your same SIM and plan just adds $5 for the actual days you use calls/data or text - you would need to check the countries you a re visiting etc.

This is far and away the simplest option if you are a Vodafone customer already.

Hi i used there 5 roaming in 2016 and i ended up with a 300 dollar bill after 9 weeks. It was handy atvthe time because we drove throughout Europe. We are goingvagain in August but will purchase a sim when we land in Frankfurt. One sim does all countries now, but depending on where you are going will depend on the providers. Eg Vodafone in Germany and 3mobile in France or UK etc.

I've spent a while researching for my impending RTW trip & have decided on GiffGaff UK SIM (posted to Aus address) & the AusPost Travel SIM $25 for emergencies/very short stays or until I buy a local SIM.

UK O2 one month pre-paid was only 15 quid, plenty calls/txt/data, worked fine in Europe once I realised I had to release it from the UK network. All the phone companies do similar deals.
