I personally use Giffgaff. You can order straight to your address for free.

From giffgaff website:

Inclusive roaming is created for giffgaff members who typically reside in the UK, and is ideal for short trips to other places in the EU.

The vast majority of our members will be eligible without needing to do anything different, but if you donít meet the necessary criteria, or go against our fair usage guidelines, then inclusive roaming may be switched off. Youíll still be able to use your phone in the EU if you have credit, but you'll be charged 3.3p/minute, 1p/text, 0.47p/MB. If you have a goodybag but no credit, youíll not be able to use our service in the EU.

To make things easy, we automatically turn on EU roaming when you buy a goodybag. However, if we canít see any recent UK usage, weíll send you an email and SMS asking for proof of residency in the UK. You must give this to us within 14 days, to ensure you remain eligible and your inclusive roaming stays turned on. You can submit various documents as proof of UK residency. Find out more

If you fail to submit such evidence, youíll receive an email advising you of your impending ineligibility for inclusive roaming and an SMS shortly thereafter confirming your inclusive roaming has been switched off. If you submit the required bits at a later stage, (or if we see evidence of UK usage) your inclusive roaming will be turned on again.
I think if your holiday is under 14 days should be ok.

A lot of Three UK roaming partners in Europe do not operate 4G network. Thus at best you can only get 3G connections.

So far it’s been good for me. Just to update:

Budapest 3g, Vienna 3g, Barcelona 4g connection very strong.

Prague 3g is weak when u go indoors.

Thanks. After all the browsing and reading, decided on Orange Holiday sim from Klook. Hope it works well.

Do you know what kind of "UK activities" it means? If set VPN to UK then ok?
