If you’re travelling in the EU, mobile data is included in your plan at no extra cost. In non-EU countries, standard fees apply for mobile data use.

Good to know

Use our roaming costs calculator to find out what standard rates are in your destination

If you’re a Max plan user who joined or upgraded before 10 May 2017, your allowances include some of the most popular destinations outside of the EU.

Before you go

To make sure your phone connects automatically to 4G when you're in the EU (where available) for free, check your device is set to automatic network selection within your device settings.

For help with this, choose your phone on our Phones and Devices Help pages and select Connectivity > Selecting Network
