Can a TOURIST buy an ee sim and use it also in another EU country

Can a tourist buy an ee sim (Pay as you go) and use it also in another EU country (roaming) ?

I'll come to England for few days, then going to Norway.

Hi @AmiL

 

Yes! 

 

If you get a SIM from the airport you normally get a data bonus. 

 

Thanks

Hi @AmiL

 

Welcome to the community.

 

Yes, you can. 🙂

 

As @Northerner said, most airports have SIM vending machines/SIM cards for sale in the stores. Alternatively, you could pop to the nearest EE store to pick one up.

 

Please bear in mind the 'stable links' part of our pay as you go terms and conditions though:

 

Our PAYG service is intended for customers with a stable link to the UK who travel abroad periodically. It is not intended for customers roaming on a permanent or semi-permanent basis.

 

We will consider you have a stable link to the UK if spend a total of 60 days or more during any 120 day period within the UK. If your usage abroad in the EU/EEA/Switzerland exceeds this, you will be alerted by text, and after a 2-week period we may charge you for services you use or block your SIM card and roaming services.

 

We’ll let you know before we do anything.

 

Enjoy your stay in the UK. 😄

That means I can't !

I wrote "i'll come to England for few days, then going to Norway", so if I'm a tourist, I don't have "stable link" to the UK !

Am I right ?

So how can I have a PAYG sim card to use in England and EU ?

Is there a solution for that ?

@AmiL You still can Ee won’t know or care unless it’s less than 60 days in 120 so they are not going to even check for 4 months. If you are wanting to use as a pay as you go then throw away when done it will be fine

Good Morning @AmiL.

 

As long as you use it in the UK first, you will be able to use it in Norway. 

 

Please be aware that the SIM could stop working after 120 days if you do not return to the UK.
