cell phones traveling between countries - BeNeLux

Jump to last reply

I have a cell phone I purchased from eBay that I have used for a few years by buying a SIM card wherever I am. This has proved to be an inexpensive and very satisfactory way for me even with a phone that only works on speaker or headphones (another story).

This trip we will be traveling through Netherlands (first stop so would buy the SIM there), Belgium and Luxembourg. My question is will this turn out to be expensive because different countries and I may as well use another solution like the Verizon loan I have read about?

I do not use it enough to buy a new SIM in each country. Mostly use it to check in with hotels, call home once in awhile and be available in emergencies from home.

Thanks for any suggestions!
Barb
