Kiwi's - Vodafone Roaming or UK Sim?


Hey kiwi travellers,

I’m doing the Grand European Tour in July. Would love some advise on what to do regarding phone Sim’s.
I’m with Vodafone NZ and will be mainly using my phone to text back home and use free wifi spots for email etc.

Don’t know whether to just go on Vodafone roaming or get a UK Sim?
What i gather is you get charged ‘roaming’ with a UK Sim when in Europe anyway?

Any tips?



My sis lives in UK she advised me to get an O2 sim when I get to UK, so I can use that in Europe apparently they are really good, I wouldnt risk using a local sim imo.


Cool thanks James
