I know there are plenty of threads out there about this, but they are a tad dated, suited to the situation and such.

So im off to aus (middle of brisbane) for 3 days in just over a month for a family wedding, I will obviously be wanting to use my phone over there likely faar more heavily than i normally do here.
I had originally assumed 5$ a day deal went over to prepay, but actually reading into it that isnt the case!

As its only 3 days, obviously picking up another sim wouldnt work to be very effective plus messing around with nanosims is an absolute pain!

Currently im simply on the prepay plans with the rollover and such, it does all i need with the roll-over minutes, data etc and comes in cheaper than on account plans anyway. Short of a "tablet" plan, on account really isnt suited to me.

Quick look at roaming costs, Particularly data, and i am not exactly keen! however if popping into a store and seeing if they can offer some sort of a deal on account, Ild certainly consider doing so and paying a bit more.. (im certainly not after a phone! im still one that outright buys phones..)

As for the suggestion of considering other providers options, Due to my rural location Vodafone work out to be the best option for me.
