Mobile Phone in Europe

Hi All,

I just booked two Contiki tours, Ultimate Europe and Russia&Scandi.

I am planning to bring my Mobile-phone (Tri-band, unlocked) for the trip, so I can call Canada.

I know ekit sells different kind internation Roaming SIM cards, but the base rate is already 0.99USD/minute, and depends on other countries you may visit, the rate can be even higher.

Do you guys know if this rate already cover the long-distance fee from europe to Canada, or it's only the cost the air-time, I have to add the long distance cost additonal.

I was wondering if there are some cheaper alternative, such as Vodafone. I know their network cover a lot countries in Europe. However both of my tours probably cover even more countries (26) in Europe. I am kind struggled about which mobile plan should I choose.

Thanks alot
