Off to Spain on Tuesday. I'm on three so can use feel at home no problem. GF is on vodafone and their EU roaming option (£2.50 or so a day to use allowances abroad) is extortionate. Looked on the vodafone website and they mention LBO's and ARP's but give no details of any that vodafone work with, anyone got any ideas? She's got a fruit phone and it's not unlocked so putting a 3 payg sim in isn't really an option.

Cheers.

Tell her to put her phone on airplane mode and only connect to free wifi. She can ask you to send the odd text for her if it's an emergency.

I suggested that. God knows what she'll do without facebook for a couple days.

Yes I know my craic is obviously **** if she needs to go on facebook etc.

About the only option I can see is to tell her to get a portable Wifi device, what is known as a Mifi (however this late it's going to be a tall ask to find a decent deal). Then you should be able to use whatever SIM you can get that offers a good deal.

Alternatively you could just get an old phone that has a Wifi hotspot feature and put the relevant sim in that and then tether the two phones together but that has the downsides of;

- have to carry 2 phones
- 2nd phone will be hot all the time it's in use as a hotspot
- Some networks require you to pay to enable tethering
- The phone will eat power

Final option is you know leave it be and tell her she's left it too late and that she either pays the cost with her provider or lives without data on her phone and just using wifi hotspots. AKA like we did before phones!

Cheers for the suggestions. I've my old Doogee X5pro in the kitchen drawer. If you buy the All in One 10 (giving you 1GB data) can you use it straight away in a feel at home country? Can't find a definitive answer.

Almost every restaurant has free WiFi so when I went away I made do with that.

Just get a three payg sim and top up £10 gives you 300 mins abroad

Or do what we're doing this year and leave phones/tablets until we get home take a camera and enjoy the holiday.
