World Select Talk and Text gives you unlimited calls and texts in five of the most visited countries outside Europe - the USA, Canada, Turkey, Australia and the UAE - for £5 a day.*
*A day is from 00:00 until 23:59 local time (i.e. the country you're currently in).
How to get World Select Talk and Text
Anyone on an EE pay monthly or SIM only monthly plan can get World Select Talk and Text.
Just text WORLD to 150 before you go or when you land.
Your add-on will be ready within 24 hours but normally takes just a few minutes. You get a text to say when it’s ready - then just carry on making calls and texts as normal. You’ll only be charged £5 on the days you make calls, receive calls or send texts in these countries.
When you get back to the UK you can keep your add-on ready for your next trip. Or if you decide to go back to paying standard rates, you can remove it by texting STOP WORLD to 150.
You can call UK numbers back at home or in the country you’re visiting plus local landline and mobiles too. So if you’re in Australia, you can call the people you’re travelling with on their UK numbers and Australian landlines and mobiles.
If you’ve already got inclusive minutes in your plan for the country you’re visiting (for example, you’ve got free calls in the USA), you’ll use them first and not be charged £5 for the day.
