  1. Call and text back to the UK

Go Roam Passes

Planning ahead before you travel? Our Go Roam Passes let you arrange your data in advance. You can buy passes for 3, 7  and 14 days, for Go Roam in Europe and Go Roam Around the World.

You can buy more than one Go Roam Pass, of any duration, and these will be redeemed in the order of purchase for that type of pass. For example, if you've bought three Go Roam in Europe passes, they will redeem in the order they were purchased. And if you've bought five Go Roam Around The World passes, they will redeem in the order they were purchased.

You can also purchase more than one type of Go Roam Pass.  If you have both Go Roam in Europe passes and Go Roam Around The World passes and the first use of your UK allowance is in a Go Roam in Europe destination, Go Roam in Europe passes will redeem ahead of any Around The World passes.

Your questions answered

Go Roam works automatically when you arrive in a Go Roam destination, as long as data roaming is switched on in your device's settings and you have a compatible device with the latest software downloaded. If you’re a Pay As You Go customer, you’ll need to have activated your SIM and made a chargeable event - such as making a call, sending a text or getting online - in the UK first.

When you arrive in your roaming destination, you’ll receive a text confirming the roaming charges costs in that country. To check out the standard international roaming charges for the country you’re visiting, click the ‘Roaming Charges’ link and choose your destination.

Don't forget that when you're calling or texting back to the UK, you'll need to replace the first 0 in the number you're calling or texting with +44.

Our fair use policies differ depending on whether you are roaming in a Go Roam in Europe or Go Roam Around the World destination and may be updated from time to time.

Go Roam is intended for our UK customers, who are UK residents visiting one of the destinations for short periods, like holidays or business trips.

More information is available on our Support Page.

If you’re traveling to a non-Go Roam destination, you will not be able to use your available allowances; you’ll be charged the standard roaming rates which vary depending on destination. Visit our Roaming Abroad page to find out more.

If you live close to the Northern Irish border, you may sometimes roam onto a Republic of Ireland network without meaning to. This is called inadvertent roaming.

To ensure there are no accidental charges applied to your monthly bill in this circumstance, we've excluded the Republic of Ireland from our monthly fair use limit of 12GB, which usually applies when roaming in our Go Roam in Europe destinations. This means you'll be able to use your data without fear of inadvertently crossing the 12GB limit. 

There are no fair use limits for making calls or sending texts whilst roaming in a Go Roam in Europe destination, and the Republic of Ireland is also excluded from the daily roaming charge.
