I don't know where you starting your travel but in France, there is a prepaid plan called Orange Holiday where you pay 40 euro and you get 10GB of data + 120 mins of phone call + 1000 SMS with free roaming included for majority of Europe.
If your first place of travel is not France, you can pay $50 and get it from Amazon.
Did some digging and saw Orange in Spain. Also see that a mobile company in Morocco was acquired by Orange. I've got some time to do some more digging....but Orange might be my best bet.
Saw this on Amazon. Might be just the ticket!
I have used the Orange Travel SIM and the 3 Travel SIM which are both available on Amazon. They give you a decent amount of data, texts, minutes, and an EU number. They also offer roaming throughout the EU for free. The Orange SIM assigns a French number, the 3 SIM a UK number. They both offer different allotments for very different prices so check them out! I definitely recommend the 3 SIM if you’re going to be in major cities, but if you plan on traveling into rural areas Orange is partnered with better carriers.
We ordered the Orange Holiday SIM from Amazon before our trip. We covered Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, London and it worked perfectly. It's about $50, covers 30 countries, and it comes with 10GB of data.
It was nice to have a working phone when we hit the ground so that we didn't have to spend time looking for open stores an
Getting a local sim is usually the best and cheapest way to go. It does depend on which European country you're going to though. Do your homework before going here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mobile_network_operators_of_Europe . Check out the rates for prepaid from providers in the country you're going to first. They vary greatly from EU country to country. For example, I recall getting a prepaid huge data plan from Eir in Ireland that worked across the EU when I flew into there once. By comparison when I went to Belgium, the deals were much worse.
You should check out Orange. Orange is a French carrier (the largest in France). They offer a Europe-wide Tourist Sim that works for 2 weeks after activation with 20GB for around $50 USD https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XBYMX58 . Even though it is from a French carrier, it works across all carriers in Europe including those not part of the EU such as Switzerland.
Sure but 9GBs is still better than having to top up to keep the line active for more than 14 days on Orange. From the amazon description for the Orange holiday sim:
“Credit valid 14 days after 1st use ( first call, first text, first internet connection). Top-up online on topup.orange.com with international credit cards”
So essentially $50 + $10/$20 top up VS $30.
