Stay connected on your travels with O2
If you're travelling within our Europe Zone, your minutes, data and texts will work just as they do at home. If you're travelling outside of our Europe Zone, then O2 Travel is the perfect way to stay connected when you're on holiday. It lets you use the internet while you're away, without worrying about overspending.
The O2 Travel Inclusive Zone Bolt On, included with selected O2 Refresh and sim only tariffs, lets you roam in 75 destinations at no extra cost. Your data, minutes and text allowances will work in our Europe Zone, just like they do at home. And you’ll get a daily allowance of 120 texts, 120 minutes, and data roaming, in 27 of our international O2 Travel destinations, including USA, Australia and New Zealand. So you can keep track of what’s going on at home, and share all your holiday pics, from the other side of the world.
If you’re not eligible, you can still pay a single fixed daily rate for O2 Travel. That’ll get you the 120 minutes, 120 texts and data you need, when roaming in all of our O2 Travel destinations. Take a look below to see which countries we cover.
Simply select the country of calling and find out how much you would pay with O2 Travel.

Our O2 Travel Bolt On is the perfect way to stay connected if you're travelling outside of our Europe Zone.
It costs £4.99 a day in selected destinations outside Europe. And that gets you all the data you need, 120 minutes to make and receive calls and 120 texts to send each day within your travel destination and back to the UK. 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. Find out more.
How O2 Travel works
You'll only be charged on the days you use O2 Travel. The daily charge applies from midnight to midnight local time (based on the capital city of the country you're in), and will be triggered if you make calls, send texts or use data. It won't be triggered by receiving calls or texts.
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.
Receiving calls on O2 Travel
You can receive up to 120 minutes of calls a day without charge, even if you don't trigger O2 Travel. If you do trigger O2 Travel, these received calls will come out of your 120 minute allowance.
After you've used up your 120 minute allowance, any calls you make or receive will be charged at our standard roaming rates.
