If any one is coming via the UK you can buy a sim at any supermarket at the till for 99p/£1 these can then be topped up at the till or ATM for far cheaper price than the Amazon deal above.
The package you get covers you throughout the EU.

The Holiday sim cards are for short periods only, 7 or 14 days and not for the month plus needed for the Camino (at least, that was what we needed). And Orange France sim cards cannot be recharged while outside France. We started and ended in France but spent 5 weeks in Spain. When the Orange France card ran out and we discovered that recharge was impossible in Spain, we had to purchase Spanish sim cards.

My experience is Orange only gives one 30 days until they refill the account. Pay as you go will cost 9.99 euros for a Simcard then add a 20 euros for minutes for 30 days. There a limit to what the 20 euros pays for.
