Hopefully it's all useful info for others looking for a deal.
BUT the Reglo is good for a month in France.
For Spain looking into the Lobster deal in post 35 they do a Spain only sim with 18gb for €10

I am currently in France and brought this sim for WiFi from E.Leclerc. It’s been amazing so far I use it in my iPhone and hotspot other devices . It wasn’t on a stand I had to ask the person for Mobile data they have them behind the desk in the electrical department. It cost €9.99 plus €5 for the SIM card which I can top up each month for €9.99 giving me 60GB each month . Iv not added my credit and won’t continue after the 30 as I’m changing countries. I can confirm that the sim will work in Belgium but only for 5GB and it texts in French to top up but fine agin when going back into France. It’s quite possible the best purchase Iv made in France so far I’m very happy with it , highly recommend it.

This was the package we have been discussing............but without the photo.
It's probably the best package for France but as we discovered in the small print you only get 5gb of data outside France.
Hence the mention of the Lobster deal for those who are crossing over into Spain

Beware Giffgaff are reducing their roaming allowance to a measly 5Gb from 9th August. I will be moving to another provider.

I just blagged myself a stonking deal this afternoon. I must caveat it by saying that we have been customers of EE for yonks and have our mobiles (SIM only) at £7.83 each per month; home 4G router at £45 per month with unlimited data; and landline with them.

I started the conversation off regarding our SIM only deals. The data allowance on this is rubbish and I know that there are some cracking deals out there however because I am an existing customer with an older contract, I don't pay EU roaming charges with EE. Anyway I rang the "Are you thinking of leaving EE?" line and explained my position.

A most helpful chap there has now set me up with...

- My home 4G router with a new SIM card for £27 per month saving £216 per year. It's unlimited data again however I am getting a new SIM which is a mobile phone SIM card. As such I can now gift up to 100Gig of data a month off it.
- I kept the existing old £7.83 a month SIM only contracts running for our mobiles but I can now put 50Gig on to each mobile a month with my new 4G router SIM.
- I keep the free EU roaming as I haven't cancelled my old mobile contract PLUS (subject to fair use policy which I think is 50Gig per month) I can hotspot off either of our mobiles to use the gifted 50Gig of data on each phone when abroad. This also means I can watch BBC abroad as well without worrying abut getting a VPN.

This has sorted us now for the next 2 years. We take the home router with us away in the MH in the UK so get unlimited data on that plus we now basically get more data than we need when abroad....and have saved 18 quid a month too :D
