Hi there

Can I check if the Orange Holiday SIM card from Paris can cover data and calls in Switzerland with no additional roaming charges? As I will be travelling from France to Switzerland to italy, I am looking for a SIM card option with data coverage and a small amount of talktime that can cover all three countries.

please advise!

Hi Crystal,

Sorry, I don't know that particular card, but I do know that the Simly card for Europe covers all these countries without additional cost. You'll pay one fixed amount and that includes everything. Please see buy-prepaid-sim-card/europe-prepaid-data-sim-card-10-gb.htm. This is only data though, but with Skype and WhatsApp calls I never found that to be an issue. If calls are essential then take a look at ernational-sim-card/onesimcard-europe-and-more/.

You'll find more information at mcard.

Hi Crystal

The Orange website ( ile/carte-prepayee-orange-holiday-eng) says "Enjoy 10 GB of mobile internet in Europe with Orange Holiday, you can benefit from 10 GB of data mobile throughout the whole of Europe and Switzerland/Andorra whilst using your 4G." So I would say that you are good to go. In Switzerland Orange is now called Salt Mobile SA.
