Data Unlimited minutes Unlimited texts

Our O2 Travel Bolt On is the perfect way to stay connected if you're travelling outside of our Europe Zone.

It costs £6 a day in selected destinations outside Europe. And that gets you all the data you need, unlimited minutes to make and receive calls and unlimited texts to send each day within your travel destination and back to the UK. There's no upper usage limit on data, but data speeds might vary. These allowances won't affect your standard UK allowances. Voicemail (901) is included.

If you’re travelling within our Europe Zone, your allowances will work as they do in the UK. However, data usage within our Europe Zone is subject to a Roaming Limit. Find out more.

Terms apply.

There's no upper usage limit on data, but data speeds might vary. Sending a media message will cost the same as your UK tariff.
