    There are roaming sims for some countries, you'd need to look for one specifically for the required country. If you're going somewhere covered by Three Feel at Home then that will be the easiest.

    Also, use wifi when possible and an app like Viber out, then you can call phones for a few pence a minute which is much cheaper than a normal call.

    Either be on Three or use a local sim on an unlocked phone.
