    Anyone have experience with pre-paid SIM cards in Greece.

    Last time we were there we got a data only SIM (I think it had 5 Gb and you could top up) for some really low cost....I can't remember exactly but if I said 10 to 15 Euros I wouldn't be afar off.

    So searching now I am not really finding any similar plans.
    The other carrier that might suit is Wind. Any intel on either?

    I bought a UK 3 sim from ebay and had it shopped here before leaving.

    Good plan and data with europe's feels like home roaming thingy...

    Thought it was eaiser than trying to navigate on arrival.

    I use Giffgaff when I go back to the UK. They do global roaming but I'm not sure how they compare on rates but they are the most economical in UK . You can apply on line and they will send the sim to your Aussie address. I just top up on line before I get on the plane to go over.

    I second 3 as provider
    last year spouse and I had sim cards from 3 that we bought here, travelling in Spain and Portugal with a brief stopover in Rome
    they were cheap-ish - better than prepaid sims here - lasted for a month, and the info we had was that they could be renewed via an online payment
    when we went to pay for an additional month for each card we hit a snag - the credit card had to be issued in the UK
    I called their international free help line and they told me that they would just renew the cards for another month at no cost and we could just use our remaining credit
    they even offered us contracts for the phones in Australia, saying that it would compare favourably with Telstra

    Yeah that's what I meant above! That you can't top up easily with 3.

    But you just buy vouchers via the second link above.

    The data plans are def better than here, but don't think it would be comparable calling aus mobile to aus mobile.

    However would seriously consider for a device like a tablet .
