I have a phone I plan to take with me but am interested in whether there are pre-paid SIM card options that are cheaper than international roaming? Mainly for me to call family in Australia and vice-versa.

    I always used www.brightroam.com and it seemed to be a little cheaper for the international sim cards. They always had what I needed and they have a rather large selection so hopefully you can find what you are looking for. over 7 years ago

    I'd suggest getting a sim in the country your going to spend the most time in. In my experience whenever you jump a border the rates go through the roof and it will probably cost you money to even recieve a call. Though Im sure there are sims out there that arent like that. If your going to spend most your time in Sweden then "Convik" is a good option, and if in Germany then "Blau" is good, thats about the length of my knowledge. Otherwise theres always good old skype. over 7 years ago

    In the UK Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile and 3 all have pre-paid or Pay As You Go sims for local calls but if you're travelling with a laptop then I'd say Skype would be your best bet for calling home. over 7 years ago

    I used O2 pre-paid in the UK and Germany. It was good but a few things didn't work quite right..

    1. I couldn't top up online because the UK require a residential address for credit card payments online and it is very strict! I had to top up in a store, which caught me out a few times with no credit.

    2. I then discovered while in Germany that I could not top-up my O2 UK card in the store as they have different systems. over 7 years ago
