To all you seasoned EU travellers out there, what do you suggest for a call/data package in the EU? Will try to use WiFi where possible but along with our Normandy blat will also be travelling around France to Germany, on family holidays later this year so was considering a pay monthly or PAYO sim for the EU. Any suggestions. A quick search seems to suggest O2 sounds good. 30 day monthly contract (£9.50 minimum topup) so only use it for a couple of months for the holidays, then £1.99 per day O2 travel blot on giving unlimited data when needed?

Any other recommendations?

I've used 02 with no problems. The;r prices seem fair.

Well after a bit of research I have ordered a Orange Spain "Mundo" Sim card. No monthly contract and 1 euro per day for 100mb. I believe it is intended for Spanish only customers but covers 36 countries and you can arrange for it to be shipped to the UK from some retailers. Hopefully on its way so I will let you know.....

Well my Orange Spain sim card has arrived. Understanding a bit of Spanish would certainly help but the card was pre-activated Ok. Managed to create an account on the Spanish website and setup the "Go Europe" tariff. All seems to be OK. Ready to test out now on our Normandy blatt.....

I bought a three pay as you go sim card for our 3 week trip with all you can eat data, 3000 texts and 3000 minutes. Worked a treat apart from when we got to Germany for some reason?!

With my Vodafone account I get my UK allowance for £3 per day when within Europe.
If I don't use the phone for a day, I pay nothing that day.

Works for me
