Hello,

 

giffgaff sims can be used abroad, but you need credit before you leave.

Hi
See here
Giffgaff abroad
All giffgaff sims are enabled for use abroad.
Remember goodybags and gigabags, and free giffgaff to giffgaff are for uk use only. You need credit in your account to use your phone abroad. You need to check that your network carrier is set to automatic in your phone settings. This will allow your phone to connect to O2's partner networks all over the world. I would also disable data roaming, and use wifi where possible, as data usage abroad is very expensive, and disable voicemail ( Dial 1626 )
You can also enable auto top up on your gg dashboard. If your balance drops below £3, you can set it to top up your credit by a set amount, this has to be done by entering a debit or credit card number.

See link below for a detailed guide for using giffgaff abroad.

Re: Can giffgaff use in Europe?

Giffgaff SIMs are enabled for international roaming by default. Giffgaff, via O2, covers a lot of countries so you shouldn't have a problem taking your phone abroad.

You will need airtime credit to use your phone abroad, as goodybags are UK only. Also, it's difficult to topup when you are abroad so ensure you have plenty of airtime credit before you go.

Finally, data/internet usage (data roaming) is expensive, 45p/mb in the EU, £5/mb everywhere else!! It's best to stick to wifi!

International prices can be found here http://giffgaff.com/index/international

Your goodybag will not work abroad.

You will need to top up with additional credit. https://giffgaff.com/buy

Charges here: http://giffgaff.com/index/international, scroll down to roaming

Roaming charges can build up quickly, use a local sim if possible and/or stick to wifi
