Re: Your mobileplan for travelling

We generally just pick up a SIM in the new country. Cheaper and simpler than trying to get a worldwide cell plan.

The only exception would be if you are bouncing around to a new country every few days (EU for this purpose would generally be considered one country as I believe they mandated coverage across all member states).

Other than the USA, which is a much bigger hassle, in most countries at the airport or any mobile shop, for $10-30, they will pop a new sim card with 10-50GB for the month in your phone and get you up and running within 10-15min.

If you need a permanent number, get an IP number (like Skype but many alternatives if you don't like them)

Re: Your mobileplan for travelling

Currently we have a sim from Kiss here in France and it gives us 150 Giga @ 4G of data for 25€ per month.

That very hard to beat.

You need your credit/debit card and your online pin to buy it.

I feel local Sim cards is a good way to connect.
Did the same in many European countries.
