Can I Connect to WiFi Whilst Abroad?

Hi, I seem to be having difficulty posting a topic & there does not seem to be the chat facility on the main EE website like there was. 

It's a simple question I have & hope that you can help me.

We are currently travelling overseas & i put in our 30 days notice on our monthly handsets on the 06/07/18 when our house sale completed. (We were not in contract).

When we go to paygo,which should be in the next few days, we do not want to use the roaming option. We have switched off the mobile data on the handsets anyway,but will we still be able to connect to wi -fi where ever we are with the handsets ??

This is what we have been doing for the last couple of weeks.

We know to make a call to each other once every six months, just to keep the sim active.

Sorry if the question seems daft but I'm a bit thick when it comes to technology. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as I see you are very knowledgeable. Thanks : )

@Tiffin: Yes, you can always use WiFi from a mobile phone wherever you are. You don't even need a SIM in. The WiFi capability of mobile phones is completely separate from their mobile network capability.
