I am planning a trip which begins in Hungary, continues in Slovkia (most of the duration) and ends in Austria. Coming from outside the EU, it seems it would be a good idea for me to buy a local SIM card, for making local calls, calls to the subsequent countries I'm visiting, and for being accessible to family members at home in case of an emergency. It is important for me, of course, not pay higher "roaming" costs when making or accepting calls outside of Hungary (where I will first arrive).
What would be my best option for getting such a SIM card - so as to minimize the price and the hassle of getting it? Please also explain where to get the SIM.
- I don't speak Hungarian (I speak English and some French).
- The total duration of the trip is a little over two weeks.
- I use Internet-based messaging applications like WhatsApp, but I don't watch videos or anything else that requires a lot of bandwidth.
- I'm arriving in Budapest by air.
