    Further to my earlier post regarding The Romantic Road GERMANY . . . sorry I forgot to put that last bit assuming Funsters being the source of all knowledge would have heard of it! Thank you for all your replies. Taking it to the next question . . . we extensively toured the Mosel/Rhine last year and found WiFi very difficult to get any suggestions please as to the best way (easiest being a big thick on technology) on how to keep my internet connection? Many Thanks.

    Sorry me again - bought a pre-loaded 30 day SIM card for 10.95 all set up and ready to go - various downloads mean more cost
    Oh from T mobile store

    Hi, yes the more mets you want the better grade sim you need - we only use for weather, searching sites and email so 250mb was ample
    We found hotspot erratic and site wifi variable so the sim was good backup

    Did you purchase that sim locally or uk before you set off ? My needs sound similar to yours so that was 10.95 Euros ?
    I perhaps would want to do a few Skype video calls, I think that is data hungry. Can you illuminate my dimness please ! :)

    PS I was unaware that there are different grades of sim ????

    We used ay-yildiz card purchased from a mobile phone repair shop. The big companies often require proof of residence in Germany. If memory serves the card came with 2gb and cost 20eur.
    A Skype video call will eat into data, my wife used 1gb on a 30min call, anything that stream video is data hungry.
