I'm hoping someone can help me, we're travelling to Europe soon and I'll need a phone while over there, I'd ideally not like to use my phone provider as roaming charges are extortionate. Can anyone suggest a sim provider that works across uk, France & Italy?
I'm not worried about topping it up, I'll put 50 £ when we get there to cover us, but is there a pre paid provider that will work across those three countries??
Thanks in advance for your help!!
(I asked SIL & she said 'just use Skype' , that's not an option for us 😊)

The post office sells one that is reasonably priced for calls and SMS. I just got it for my parents, we loaded $100 onto it and can be used for data roaming too

We bought one over there. Just go in to a phone shop and ask for the one with the cheapest rates to Australia. We could call home for 6 pence a minute from the UK

I might check out the post office one, otherwise we have time in London first so. I'll buy one as soon as we get there

There's one called travelsim that I used and had coverage in all countries we went to. I think that might be the post office one.

There are Vodafone stores there. We bought a prepaid sim in Italy with 30euro credit and it lasted us 4 weeks. We got a plan with cheap international calls and pretty much no other inclusions. Just pop into a phone store over there.
