I use Vodafone Eurotraveller when I'm abroad. capped at £3 per day you use it and you get your normal plan. Sure they must do something to call abroad.

Most networks only charge 1-2p a text now anyway and calls are free to receive (and 5-10p to make) so it's not worth getting a separate package anymore, he can just send a 2p text saying call me and you can ring him for free. Data is the only proper cost now so just make sure that's turned off.

Make sure your phone has International roaming enabled. A quick call to the network provider is always worth it. They will try and sell you bundles. You can always turn them down.

I'd check if he's even allowed to take a phone with him, our daughters school forbids taking any 'technology' on school trips away due to endless problems of them getting lost/stolen, and homesick kids phoning home crying etc...

We'd be ignoring that directive anyway, I'm not sending him away with no way to contact us, he can be discreet I'm sure.
