Hello, I am going across Europe for around a week and a half, I will be going through France, Germany and Italy. I am looking for the best options to use my phone for the cheapest price. I would mainly like roaming data but unsure of how it works.

Many thanks :)

three depending how much data you need data reward might be better than 123.
123 first top up is £10 with 150mb free for 30 days.
data reward sim min top up £2 with 200mb free every 30 days.
both are 1p mb after that.

As previous posters: Three network. If £20 is within budget, topup £20 to a 3 PAYG SIM then use that £20 to buy the All-in-One 20 bundle giving you total 12GB data, 300mins, 3000texts to use in UK and the Feel-at-Home countries. Does not include any allowances for local-roaming calls / txts.

The only gotcha with Three - is how much patience you have with data. Whilst they do offer 'at home' data allowance - it is at a drastically reduced speed.

When I was travelling in the US late last year I struggled to get anywhere near 1mbps. They also hairpin it through the UK so they can traffic shape / throttle things.

That said, despite slowness it's acceptable for searching / catching up on social media / navigating. If you need something more than that I would recommend looking at another operator, or just purchasing a 'throwaway' SIM whilst you are in-country.
