Data costs

Don't have O2 Travel or a Worldwide data Bolt On? We'll still help you control data costs abroad. By telling you when you're reaching our standard monthly limit. That's 250MB in Europe or 6MB everywhere else. And by stopping your data when you hit it. If you want to use more, call us on 0800 028 0202 and opt in to the higher limit - ideally before you go. Just make sure you check with whoever pays the bill.
