@AlanGiles1968: Yes, just turn Mobile Data & Data Roaming OFF in your phone's Settings.

With EE, you need to buy a data add-on when outside of the EU, you cannot just use data and get a large bill, so even if you leave data roaming enabled, unless you go to the add-on page and buy data, you won't be charged anything.

 

That said, just turn data roaming off in your menu.

Thank you I went to Tunisia in November and when it said I was hooked up to the hotel Wfi I must not have been and came home to a £189 bill !!

Were you then on Orange or T-M? On EE that could only be for calls & texts if you never bought roaming data add-ons.
