Christmas is just 5 weeks away and it is the best time to travel amazing European Christmas markets. Lot of Indian will be traveling to Europe during winter vacations. It is the best time to travel indeed.

Busy in festivities, you would also need to communicate with your friends and family back home to know about their well being. People thinking of taking calling cards should make a note that it can cost you upto 4.7 Euro per minute. This is the lowest rate for Indian travelers. Other is Europe international sim card which you can get from Clay Telecom, which will cost as low as 0.45$ per minute for call back option and 0.60$ for call through option. Incoming call is free. The number will be pre activated before you leave India.

You also have a option of buying local sim card either at the airport booths or in the local city. Most of the newsagents are involved in this business. Major carriers in Europe are Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile, Virgin Mobile, Three & O2. On the price side, all the carriers have similar pay-as-you-go (PAYG) deals for less than 15 quid. Here is the link for detailed knowledge on PAYG option.  But there is one major concern in this. One local sim card cannot be used in all of the Europe. When you travel from one country to another, then again you face the problem of roaming charges. All three options are good in their own way and have to be decided on depending on your travel needs.
