If you are visiting England for any length of time and want the convenience of a mobile phone, then Pay as You Go is the best option. If you bring your phone from North America, you will pay high roaming costs. Instead buy the cheapest mobile you can find at any of the companies listed below and get a pay-as-you-go card. This card looks like a credit card, and you have the choice of putting as much or as little money on it as you wish. Then just dial away. You’ll pay local rates. When your money is used up, you can “top up” your card at convenience stores, newsagents, petrol stations, and some other shops. Very handy, very convenient, and very cost effective.

Insider Tip: Because we are on the road a lot, we find a mobile phone essential for booking accommodations and for phoning them when trying to find our way, especially for those down country lanes. It’s also handy for phoning attractions to double-check their opening times, making restaurant reservations, and for setting up meetings with people. We couldn’t do without ours.
