I've just come back from travelling Europe, and the best option may be to just purchase a prepay SIM in each country. That depends on how long she will be spending in each country, if it's only a few days in each then it wouldn't be worthwhile.

Mobile data was cheap in Europe, and ridiculously cheap in the UK.

Really depends on quantity of data. Roaming I can burn 500MB a day easy as if I have no access to any other connectivity.

Recently in Fiji we averaged 100MB a day on our phones just across twitter + facebook etc with posting photos.

I've read through the comments here and I'm going to try change my plan on attack a little... I'm looking at getting a PAYGO SIM from what of the countries she is visiting, then using their roaming data charges from there. This may be a more effective way to get data while over there.


I'll let you know what I find... but keep posting - all of this helps! Thanks!
