SIM 'Gatuita' with free international calls
And if you recharge € 10 or more:
Take 30 min. Free month to call mobile and fixed any country, 24 hours (including call set), keeping the entire balance of your charge for what you want.
For domestic calls, the price will be 20 Cent. / Min plus 15 cents for call establishment.
I know that having an international cell phone would ease some of the stress, since they would have direct access to me whenever they wanted. And while that might cheapen some of the camino experience, i know that the trade-off's are worth it.
Vagabodette has a point, you can also use facetime if you and your folks have iPhones or iPads or Macs for free voice and video calls.calling internationally from a cell phone is crazy unless you have an international plan. better to just use skype
wayfarer has given sound advise on getting a Spanish sim card when you get there, also note that the sale of International Sim cards to overseas buyers can be an expensive scam. Read the blogs and get advise from a phone guru Evan Low who just completed a recent Camino and posted more than 250 blogs with beautiful pictures. Evan used an iPhone with a Spanish Sim, but other smartphones are just a useful with a Spanish Sim, perhaps more versatile and less locked to Apple, as you can add external storage, transfer photos directly from a camera SD card; you can carry a spare battery which saves you hunting for a charging point should your battery run out of power when you use a none-Apple product, etc. All smartphones have GPS which tells you where to go: it can pinpoint exactly where you are and also transmits the location to anyone looking for you, apart from a multitude of other tricks it can do.I would recommend the Samsung Galaxy S2 because you can fit an SD card and they are a great phone. Get a Spanish sim when you get there, (pay as you go

Enjoy the Camino, and have a good one.
