Think Three have started early with some countries covered under their 'Feel at Home' service. Spain not included yet but seemingly they are working on adding more countries. We're off to Rome for a few days next month so will try it then, should save me a few quid.

Just a wee update on this regarding Three's 'Feel at Home' service. They've announced today that as of 1/Apr/15 Spain (& islands) will be included. Even if you don't use Three as your regular network it MIGHT be worth getting a PAYG sim to use only on yer holidays. More info
Three Feel at Home
I know there used to be a 60 day qualifying period (i.e. buy it 2 months before you travel) not sure if still the same.
They do an All in One 15 Add-on which has;
All-you-can-eat data
300 minutes
3000 texts.        
Cost: £15      
Last: 30 days...........     Looks perfect for holidays even if you don't move to Three permanently for your Home network. Have to order a Free sim, your phone would have to be unlocked for Three & possibly have to use the sim very occasionally at home to keep it active.

All the networks have been slow introducing this, maybe all the rest will quickly follow but fair play to Three for adding new countries.

That's not bad I didn't know they done an all you can eat data package for £15, I remember trying them on the 321 package and the quality and speed of the data was brilliant on 3g, and I now understand you get 4G at no extra cost but I never got a signal at home but everywhere else was fantastic. Might be worth exploring this but I recon all the other companies will come in line soon, I was rather hoping three would be the ones to buy out O2, that would be a great package for GiffGaff.

I wonder how it compares with Vodafone (my provider)?

I pay £3 a day whilst abroad, which gives me my 'home' tariff, which pretty much means unlimited calls and texts, I'd assume data as well seeing as I don't ever use half of my allotted Megabytes.
I only have to pay the £3 if I actually use the phone.
