extra data for roaming on holiday?

Hi.

 

I'm going to Prague just after Christmas for four days. I'd like to be able to have some internet access as a backup. Not particularly bothered about calls, as I mostly use whatsapp and email for communications and I'll mostly use the internet for maps and stuff while we're out of any bars etc that have wifi.

 

I get 2bg per month as part of my plan. I'm guessing this will be UK only.

 

If that's the case, can you buy lumps of roaming data as an add-on, rather than accrue charges as I go? (unless of course my monthly data simply cuts off when I leave the UK) 

 

Thanks.

No, all your allowances incl. data are usable throughout the EU incl. Czech Republic.

Really? Wow, that's pretty cool. So as long as I stick within my limits - no extra charges?

 

And if I do go over, will the extra charges be higher in EU or the same as if I went over in the UK?

You can't go over with data. You'll just need to buy an add-on like in the UK.

Welcome to our community, @nightofjoy 🙂

 

I see @XRaySpeX has given you the brilliant news!

 

Please make sure you check that roaming is activated before you go. You can check in your My EE Account under Manage Device.
