Hi @Romanmesh and welcome to the community.


Please speak to customer services who will be able to look into the most suitable plan/add-on for your needs whilst in Australia.


Many thanks,

EE no longer sell any Max SIM only plans unfortunately so your only option would be a paid add-on.

Thanks. Can I just check that I can buy a month add on for say Australia and then cancel it the following month.

Hello there @Romanmesh


Thanks for coming back to us.


If you select one of our day add-on's you will only pay for the days when you use this.


Our Go Further add on at £10.00 per month is for a minimum of 6 months.


For full information see our EE Roaming Australia charges>


Thanks. Leanne.

So the Go Further add-on @ £60 is worth buying if you want unlimited Talk + Text & at least 40 MB / day data for at least 6 days of your trip OR if you want to use your UK data allowance up to a max. of 15 GB / month..
