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. about 10 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. about 10 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. about 10 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. about 10 years ago
