For Americans, traveling to Europe can be expensive.
The plane ticket usually isn't the killer, but rather the international data roaming: at around $5 per MB, just checking email a few times could leave a traveler with quite a shocking bill. While travelers can purchase European SIM cards, the endeavor can be a hassle.
That's where Xcom Global is coming in. The company has made a name for itself by renting MiFi and USB WWAN devices to travelers who go to select overseas countries, and now it is expanding to the bulk of Europe with a single device.
This new Euro SIM is a serious all-in-one punch, offering unlimited data in 40 countries across the pond for as little as $12.95 per day for a USB device (MiFi devices are slightly more). It's just about the best deal going for those who simply have to have unlimited data everywhere they go in Europe, and considering that some European hotels are charging for Internet access these days, it becomes an even bigger bargain.
