That's what I wanted to hear Barry!

I remember the last time I had a voda SIM for EU and they were supposed to honour some special rates for roaming but didn't. 'It's only £3/day for access' they said.

ONLY £3/day??!?! That was about 10yrs ago.

Excellent in the South of Ireland too.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Even better Alan! Especially as I mightn't get any further this year.

Its going to work out really expensive if we go back to all that. Faffing around trying to find different sims, diverting numbers etc. Complete PIA

Hi Mandy and welcome

Just to throw another option on the already bewildering choice of options: we have 4G wifi at home with EE as the wired broadband here is virtually non existent (rural west Wales). The router, that was supplied by EE, is portable and can be plugged in to the MH when we are on a site with electrical hook up. As we pay for unlimited data we can use this when away and also in the EU (despite EE announcing that they are brining in charges for new customers I believe).

Of course it all depends on whether you can get an EE phone signal when here in the UK. I have yet to try it abroad.

Donít argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. óGreg King

If you belong to the Caravan Club you can pay a yearly subscription to use their wifi on their sites. We stay on one regularly near my daughter and just log in when we need to.

I didn't know that Pat. Can I ask how much it is as their short term rates are very expensive?

Can't remember Graham. It is essential for us with no smart phone so I just coughed up.
