Sim card for CH and UK

I have visitors from Australia over Easter and then they go on to the UK. They asked me to advise on a sim card for both countries and I have no idea where to start.


I did google but I mostly found stuff from the States.


Does anyone have any suggestions,?


Cheers.

Amazon.co.uk - data SIMs. Personally I'd just pick them up at the airport - one for CH, one for the UK and not worry about having the same SIM for both.

Re: Sim card for CH and UK

Buy a 3 UK SIM card. They are great and if you buy a bundle then it covers loads of countries, prob even their home country!

I would check eBay or amazon for one. Loads on there. Then register it online and top it up to the value of the bundle you want, then buy the bundle! Easy!

I believe the Three SIM cards need activating in the UK before you can roam with them. I think you might be able to get pre-activated ones from somewhere like worldsim dot com but you'd have to check.
