O2 Travel hits 30 new destinations outside of Europe
O2 Travel, our award winning roaming proposition, is the perfect way to stay connected when you’re on holiday. From today (14 July) we’re extending our Pay Monthly Consumer O2 Travel service to cover 30 new destinations outside of Europe. You can check your emails, share some selfies or keep up with the latest news back home.
O2 Travel lets our customers talk for longer, text and browse the web without the fear of coming home to a large bill, and is now the best all round roaming proposition in the market. It’s a favourite among our customers with 100% of those that used it saying they’d use the service again.
And we’ve now gone one step further for Pay Monthly customers, improving O2 Travel to cover an extended list of countries outside of Europe, including USA, Australia and Turkey. This means customers will get all the minutes, texts and data they need for a single, fixed daily charge in 65 destinations worldwide. And we’ll only charge for the days customers choose to use it.
This is great news for our customers as it means they will be able to make significant cost savings when using their phone abroad. They’ll now pay a single, flat daily charge in eligible countries outside of Europe rather than paying the regulated rates which charge data at £6 per MB and calls at over £1 per minute.
How will O2 Travel work?
For £3.99 a day in Turkey and £4.99 a day outside of Europe customers will get all the data they need, plus 120 minutes to make and receive calls and 120 texts to use each day within their selected travel destination and back to the UK. The O2 Travel daily charge within Europe will stay the same, at £1.99 a day for minutes, texts and data.
