The best local SIM cards in Europe Donald Strachan replies If you only want to make a few calls and send the odd text, it is usually not worth changing your UK SIM. For example, O2’s standard rates are 24p per minute to call, and 7p to text if you use your phone in France. That’s cheaper than many domestic networks. In Italy, TIM (tim.it) and Vodafone (vodafone.it) offer the best coverage. Vodafone (vodafone.es) has the SMART 12 package, with 1 Gb of internet, 60 texts and an hour of talktime. In France data is much cheaper with a prepaid SIM (a carte prépayée sans engagement). Turkey is outside the regulated EU zone. Pretty much anywhere, a new local SIM costs only nominal fee, and comes with a small amount of call credit pre-loaded onto the card. Note that if you have a contract with Three in the UK (three.co.uk), you can make calls and send texts to UK numbers, and use your data allowance, at no extra roaming cost.

But most of the time, those flyers serve as nothing more than reading material for people waiting to get into a bathroom or on a bus.
