Our roaming charges

Going on holiday? We cover roaming in our Europe Zone as part of our Tariffs. So your data (subject to a 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. Find out more in our FAQ section below.

Using your phone in Europe

This means you are able to make calls and send texts back home or within our Europe Zone, like you’d normally do in the UK.

What other restrictions are there?

You can only use our services for periodic travel (like holidays or short breaks) in our Europe Zone (excluding the UK). Otherwise we may charge you for using our services in our Europe Zone (excluding the UK). If this has happened to you and you think it might be a mistake,call 202 from your mobile or 0344 809 0202 from any other phone.

Use of our services in our Europe Zone is subject to our fair usage policy.

The roaming coverage and  available services are subject to 3rd party network infrastructure and may be restricted. Please contact us for further details on www.o2.co.uk/contactus

See our terms.

What about data?

When you use data in our Europe Zone it will come out of your allowance, just like it would at home, subject to our Roaming Limits.

If you go over your total monthly data allowance in our Europe Zone, you'll need to add a Bolt On to keep using data - the options and cost are the same as if you were in the UK. If you add a Bolt On and don’t use all the data before heading back to the UK, you’ll still be able to use it when you get home. And if you add a Bolt On in the UK, you’ll also be able to use it in our Europe Zone.

If you use your phone in a country outside of our Europe Zone, our normal roaming charges will apply.


What’s included at no extra charge?
  • Making calls and sending texts within our Europe Zone (excluding the UK), to any other country in our Europe Zone (including the UK).
  • Receiving calls and texts in our Europe Zone.
  • Using your monthly data allowance whilst in our Europe Zone. Subject to our Roaming Limit.

What's not included?
  • Making calls or sending texts from the UK, to countries outside of the UK.

What is the Roaming Limit?

Tariffs with more than 25GB of monthly data

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 £3.50/GB.

These charges will apply until the following (depending on which is earliest);

  • You use up your monthly UK data allowance**
  • You return to the UK
  • You reach your next bill cycle

**If you use all your UK data allowance when roaming outside the UK, you’ll need to buy a data Bolt On if you want to keep using data. See our data Bolt Ons here.

Tariffs with 25GB or less of monthly data

These tariffs are not subject to our Roaming Limit of 25GB. But if you use all your UK data allowance when roaming outside in the UK, you’ll need to buy a data Bolt On if you want to keep using data. See our data Bolt Ons here
