Using data goodybag in France and Belgium

I frequently go off in my motorhome and use my PC with a giffgaff data goodybag to enable me to use e-mail and browse the internet for places to go and see.  This is a superb service.

 

Shortly I will be going off to France and Belgium for a couple of weeks and was wondering if I can use the same data goodybags and if so how much extra it will cost.  Any information would be most welcome.

You cannot use gigabags or goodybags abroad, they are for UK use only.
You will need credit and will be charged roaming rates

Re: Using data goodybag in France and Belgium

Unfortunately, goodybags will not work abroad, so you will need credit on your account to use giffgaff abroad. It can be quiet expensive too. See here for the pricing guide: http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing

Re: Using data goodybag in France and Belgium

Goodybags and gigabags are UK only.

 

Once you are abroad everything is charged from your credit at whatever the international roaming rate is for that country and so could get very expensive if you use a lot of data.

Re: Using data goodybag in France and Belgium

you would have to use credits abroad, so in other words day light robbery
top tip - if you ever run out of minutes, buy a calling card Smiley Happy

Re: Using data goodybag in France and Belgium

Goodybags are uk only mate, as has been said.

 

You may be best off buying a sim out there for data usage?  Worth looking into...
