Using your phone abroad is still something we have to think about ahead of our flight. Operators like Three have their Feel At Home service and other networks have packages and bolt-ons or a certain amount of roaming minutes and data included.
EE have today unveiled the Travel Data Pass, which will replace the Euro Data Pass. The rename is due to 11 additional countries coming as part of the deal, including Australia, UAE, USA and Canada….. all very non-European. Get the Pass and you can browse safely knowing that you’ll never be charged more than the Travel Data Pass actually cost you to buy.
Every day abroad you’ll receive 500MB of data, with it costing £3 per day for European roaming, £4 per day across the USA and Canada or £5 per day if you’re in Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, UAE, India, Thailand, Mexico, South Africa & China. All of this is available to Pay Monthly customers right now, and you can get full details below or head to this EE Travel Data Pass page for more information.
EE LAUNCHES NEW ‘TRAVEL DATA PASS’ AND NEW DATA ROAMING ADD-ONS
IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS
1 December 2016 – EE today announced a new Travel Data Pass and new data roaming add-ons for EE pay monthly customers. Available immediately, these new options offer smartphone users even greater value access to the internet when abroad – just in time for the festive season.
Travel Data Pass
The new Travel Data Pass replaces EE’s hugely popular Euro Data Pass to offer customers worry-free phone use in an additional 11 countries, including popular destinations such as Australia, UAE, USA, Canada and Thailand.
Perfect for those wanting to share their holiday selfies, map the quickest route to their next destination, or simply check email, customers will receive 500MB of data each and every day for the duration of their trip.
So whether you’re planning on celebrating New Year in Times Square, getting away from the cold with some sun Down Under or sampling the Hamburg Christmas markets, you can relax and post photos on Facebook or Instagram, and send messages via WhatsApp – with no surprise bills when you get back.
With EE, customers will never pay for more data than they choose to buy so there’s no need to worry about nasty bill surprises. Travel Data Pass is available immediately to EE pay monthly mobile customers on 4GEE Standard, 4GEE Extra and 4GEE Essentials plans.
Travel Data Pass Pricing:
|Travel Data Pass Pricing|
|£3 per day||500MB available each day across Europe*|
|£4 per day||500MB available each day across United States and Canada|
|£5 per day||500MB available each day in Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, UAE, India, Thailand, Mexico, South Africa & China|
Current users of the Euro Data Pass will be automatically transferred over to Travel Data Pass and enjoy these new benefits when they next travel to any of the listed countries.
To opt-in to Travel Data Pass benefits, EE customers should simply text the word TRAVEL to 150 using their phone and they will automatically be enrolled for the duration of their contract. There is no need to remove it upon return to the UK and users will only be charged on the days they use mobile data abroad in an included country.
