Abroad, credit cards stolen, PAYG almost out, any ideas?

I live in the UK but am in Spain and Portugal, and all my credit cards were nicked earlier in Paris. The cards were naturally stopped ASAP, so there is no card currently linked to my t-mobile/EE account.

 

I have all of £3.52 on my EE PAYG. 

 

This is bad news.  I keep needing to talk to my bank about cash transfers to keep me going (the holding queue meant a cost of £11-odd for the last one), and this mobile number is the one attached to my online banking. 

 

Anyone got any ideas about how I can add credit to the phone?

The easiest way I can think of is if someone you know in the UK buys a top up voucher and sends you the voucher code by SMS or chat app.

Hi @emgee,

 

Thanks for visiting the EE Community.

 

I'm sorry to hear your credit cards were stolen.

 

That's a great tip from @Peter_C, have you been able to get someone in the UK to help you out?
