  • Data

    Data Abroad Bolt On | £120 a month cap

    Email and browse the internet when you're abroad for less.

    Our Bolt On increases your standard data limit while abroad:

    • Within the EU - 100MB (£48 inc VAT) increases to 300MB (£120) a month
    • Outside the EU - 50MB (£40 excl VAT) increases to 200MB (£120) a month

    In simple terms, this means that the maximum you'll be charged for using data abroad is £48 inc VAT within the EU or £40 excl VAT outside the EU a month unless you opt to take the bigger option. Then the maximum becomes £120.

    It won't cost you anything up-front to take this data option. It simply lets us know that you're happy to increase your data limit (and charges) while abroad. Terms apply
