The cost to text an O2 number abroad?

I'm reading a lot of conflicting information on this topic Smiley Sad Please could someone tell me how much it is to text a UK number currently in Spain. I have a £15 goodybag and no additional credit. My texts are getting through, are they just comg out of my goodybag allowance or will I be charged for them at a later date? Sorry I'm new to giffgaff!

If you are in the UK then contacting a UK mobile abroad is just like a normal call or text for you ( ie same as them being in the UK ). You use goodybag minutes/texts, free gg to gg or PAYG - whatever you normally use.

The other person is liable to pay the roaming rate for making and receiving calls.

You should be chrged at 8p per text. Are you sure that the person that you're texting is not on giffgaff


It will be taken from the OP's text allowance mate as it's a uk number.

if you have no credit and was doing something chargeable it just would not go through. gg can't charge at a later date.
