We all know the story by now. You go abroad, you use your mobile, then you come home and collapse in shock when the bill arrives. If you’ve got an unlocked handset there are ways around the “roaming shock” by using roaming or travel SIM cards. There’s a few to choose from and now XXSIM has stepped forward with their prepaid GSM SIM card to keep your costs down whilst abroad.
Incoming calls are completely free in 120 countries and calls from places like Germany and the USA are as low as €0.35. It’ll also save you money on data roaming, just £1 per MB. We’ve just used their call calculator to show typical costs whilst on holiday in Spain..
You can order a SIM for €12, which is around £10.46. You then register it and load up some credit. A new number will then be given and you can use it worldwide.
We’d like to hear from you if you’ve used a “travel SIM” and your advice on the best ones.
