    mobile abroad.

    Hi guys, our son is going on a school trip to Spain. As none of us have been abroad since 1999, what do we need to do to be able to call/text him andfor him to call/text home without running up a huge bill please? I don't mind buying a new plan.

    Thank you.

    I got a 3 sim from the shop on pay and paid 15 last year to use on holiday

    definitely 3 sim...make sure the plan includes feel at home...

    Vodafone now have about 40 countries included in their call plans.

    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'm on giffgaff and when in EU using for my normal use age - what's app, emails, Facebook etc I only ever use £1.50-£2 a day, I used to get local sim but don't bother anymore.

    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.
