International roaming prices

When you are outside the UK, your mobile will automatically find the nearest network.

Using your mobile abroad (Roaming)

All of our SIMs have roaming enabled by default. We split the world into Zones, and each Zone has a rate for making and receiving calls, sending texts and accessing the internet. Please check these rates before going abroad, as roaming, particularly data roaming, can be very expensive. Please be aware that Canada is not in the USA and Switzerland is not part of the EU or EEA. Calls made and received in Canada are charged at Zone 3 rates, and calls made and received in Switzerland are charged at Zone 4 rates. Please also be aware that mobile signals do not respect borders and that if you are near to a border your handset may switch between providers from different zones. Most handsets have a setting that will allow you to disable roaming, so that you can choose whether or not to make and receive calls while abroad. We can also switch roaming off for you, if your handset doesn't have the option.
