You can always use it there. Text ROAMING to 150 before you leave to ensure roaming is set up on your a/c.

 

If you are on a recent EE Max plan your UK allowances are valid there up to 15 GB data. Otherwise you will need to buy roaming add-ons - see http://ee.co.uk/help/add-ons-benefits-and-plans/call-or-going-abroad/roaming-costs/countries/austral... .
