traveling to europe via train for 5 days

I plan to use easyroam. I will be crossing into different countries, germany, france, monaco, spain...etc sometimes crossing 2-3 countries in a single day.

will I be paying $12 per day per country? or just charged for 5 days = $60?

Both. If you cross into another country it's 12 dollars. You're much better off getting a SIM card in Germany or France with a plan that includes EU roaming. I've used French SIM cards around the EU without issue.

You can use the same site for any other country as well.
What?!?!

Each new country is a new roaming charge? Are you sure? For US to International it is, but not for all international locations. You can hit like multiple Euro countries in one 24hr period and I thought it was $12 for that 24 hour period

Alright so you got me wondering on that and I looked around and I am mistaken. My apologies. I was thinking about countries you can call is limited to where you are, and it is indeed a single 12 dollar charge per 24 hour period regardless of which countries you go to in a day.

thanks

thought about getting pre-paid data card but...

The problem is monaco (the non-EU country in europe). none of the pre-paid cards will work there.

So worst case use easyroam that one time. You're still gonna come out way ahead vs easyroaming the whole time.

FYI given how small Monaco is, French cellular service covers nearly all of Monaco. If the combination of French coverage and local Wi-Fi isn't doing it, just swap In your koodo SIM and go for easy roam in Monaco.
