    Hi @shruti02

    Probably you can start telling us which country are you visiting.

    Moreover, if you are going for work probably you will better off asking the contact there, for sure they will have more knowledge on the local offer

    Hi @shruti02

    I would recommend getting an eSIM if your phone allows it. You can buy it (I used Nomad) here prior to your departure. It worked very well for me in Portugal last October.

    You can also buy a physical one at most airports if you prefer.

    Have a nice trip!

    I don't know how much this applies to the rest of Europe, but the last time I was in the UK I just got myself the Fizz travel add-on and it worked very well for my needs, depending on when you're going and when your plan usually resets the addon will be good for anywhere between 30 and 60 days. If you're looking to keep the same phone and number while there then I think this is the best option. Pay-as-you-go in Europe is extremely cheap, so if you don't mind getting another number you can just buy a SIM at the airport when you arrive. If you want to specify your destination then you'll probably receive better advice for the particular country you're going to.

    If you're going to stay in Europe for more than one month, just get a SIM card when you land. They're all good and you'll be paying about $30 for unlimited everything(Data, calls, texts). That's what I did went I spent 3 months in Europe. When the month ended and I'm in a different country, I just get another SIM card from their local phone store. I never needed to do lots of research to get the "best" service provider. They were all good.

    Depending on the country you'll land, you can find plans between €5-€10 with all included for one month.

    Buy a plan from the first shop you find in there. There are all much more cheap than here.

    Even right at the airport you can find mobile shops to buy a sim card

    The plans for these sim cards are available for the whole Europe.

    It would be nice to have something like that within Canada or between Canada and USA so users don't have to pay more for a those specific plans
