Whilst the well-publicised scrapping of EU roaming charges has seen many travellers to mainland Europe breathe a sigh of relief, life can get a lot more complicated, and expensive, outside the EU.
News articles like this celebrate the removal of roaming charges in the EU. Post Brexit, who knows what will happen to these charges!
Travellers are warned that even in Europe, exceeding your standard data allowance could see you landed with a hefty bill, and for those travelling further afield, the cost of calls can quite quickly pile up.
