Mobile roaming phone bill capped in Europe
Plus lower mobile phone charges when used in Europe
By TTM on 02 July 2010 in News
Astronomical mobile phone bills are a scurge for travellers using them in Europe. But there's good news. Travellers can expect cheaper mobile phone bills when using them abroad in Europe.
This is the third time that operators have been coerced to cut the cost of calling while in Europe but the capping of data roaming charges is a new initiative.
Capping at £41 a month while in Europe will automatically be in place unless the traveller informs the operator before hand that they wish tohave unlimited internet access abroad.
Frequent travellers though may be able to save even more on their mobile calls abroad with a country Sim card.
All you have to do is swap the SIM card already in your phone for a country SIM card before you go. You can make local calls at local rates, receive calls for free and make cheaper calls to the UK. SIMS cost around £29.99 and come with 5 euros credit to get you started.
There's no contract and all incoming calls are free. Find out more: click here.
