Free EU roaming up to 25GB, at no extra cost

We cover roaming in our Europe Zone as part of our tariffs. So your data (subject to roaming limit), minutes and text allowances will work in our Europe Zone, just like they do at home.

If your UK monthly data allowance is over 25GB, you'll have a Roaming Limit of 25GB when roaming in our Europe Zone. This means you can use up to 25GB of your allowance at no extra cost – we'll text you if you're getting close to the limit, and again if you reach it. You can still use data if you reach our Roaming Limit, but you'll be charged at £3.50/GB. If your UK data allowance is less than 25GB this amount will apply in the EU too.
