My husband, teenage daughter, and I will be in Paris for five days (following five days in London) from August 16th to the 26th, and while my husband will have his work-issued iPhone with him, my daughter and I do not want to bring our phones because of expensive roaming charges.
My question is, how can we get phones for our trip to use just in case of emergencies? My main concern would be if we got separated for some reason. I have heard that many people get pay-as-you-go phones while traveling abroad. How do I do this? What might it cost? We just need basic call and text, nothing fancy. Please bear in mind that even though I have had cell phones for years, I'm pretty clueless about the cell phone "lingo," so please explain as though talking to a novice!
Also, would we be able to get one in London and still use it in Paris too, since we will be in London first? Any helpful replies will be greatly appreciated, thank you!
