Getting a UK SIM card ahead of your vacation in England, Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland is a great way to save money, and it makes it easy to keep in touch—you'll be able to use your own phone instead of buying a calling card and hunting for payphones.

For this card to work, you'll need an unlocked GSM tri-band or quad-band mobile phone. Most phones can be unlocked for a small fee. If your cell phone is on a different frequency, such as CDMA, it's easy to rent an international cell phone instead that will work with the card.
