    Visiting France soon for a week. Looking for SIM card with data plans, but not finding many options from major carriers (seems to be Orange, SFR, Bouygues Telecom). Wondering if anyone can suggest:

    1. Where can I buy a pre-paid sim card at Charles de Gaulle Airport? I can’t seem to find a cell phone kiosk on www.parisaeroport.fr/en/passengers/services/services-at-arrival

    2. Carrier with great data coverage at all the touristy places in and around Paris.

    3. Is there any pre-pay sim cards that allows tethering?

    The closest I can find is 40 Euro but that might be overkill for just France?

    Thanks!

    I was just there myself in September.

    You can get SIM cards at most Relay (newsstand/convenience store) stores within CdG. They are behind the counter at the cash register.

    The larger store in the train station was sold out though! So check the first store you see. There are many and it's a big place
