Hi @skyerayleigh 

Only really three cheap options

  • Use wifi based apps such as Whatsapp/Messanger/Viber/Skype etc as long as the other people have the apps
  • Use a local sim
  • Use Skype by adding credit

Standard costs are

  • Pay Monthly






  • P&G




  • You will need to make sure your phone is unlocked if using a local sim card
  • Also call customer service to make sure you have no roaming bars on your account
  • Switch voicemail off before leaving the UK to avoid charges for messages left
  • Turn off mobile data when boardng the aircraft and leave it off for the duration of your holiday
