Temporary SIM card for Europe?

Hi, I have 2 phones with Koodo and wanted to purchase a SIM card for the use of 10 days in Europe (No, I cant bring my current phones/SIM cards - they belong to the kids). Is this something I can do?

All in: I want a SIM card, to put in my unlocked Iphone to use whilst in Europe and want to cancel the service after 2 weeks, when I get back - for only that specific SIM card, not affecting the other two phones and their SIM cards.

To otherworldly?

Sure! Put the sim card and service of your choice in and you're good to go while in Europe. Pick a plan in x country with the data threshold that let's you use data around the EU if you'll be in multiple countries and you'll be fine.

It's possible. 
But if you add a SIM/line/new number for your trip, you will pay for service/plan  plus roaming fee.
The cheapest plan with data is $45 + easy roam $10/day when you used it.

If you have an extra unlocked phone, then it might be better to buy a local SIM in Europe.

Oh, maybe I misunderstood OP's question. I thought s/he wanted to buy Koodo SIM.
Follow Goran's suggestion  :)
