Inclusive roaming is created for giffgaff members who typically reside in the UK, and is ideal for short trips to other places in the EU.
The vast majority of our members will be eligible without needing to do anything different, but if you don’t meet the necessary criteria, or go against our fair usage guidelines, then inclusive roaming may be switched off. You’ll still be able to use your phone in the EU if you have credit, but you'll be charged 3.3p/minute, 1p/text, 0.6p/MB. If you have a goodybag but no credit, you’ll not be able to use our service in the EU.
To make things easy, we automatically turn on EU roaming when you buy a goodybag. However, if we can’t see any recent UK usage, we’ll send you an email and SMS asking for proof of residency in the UK. You must give this to us within 14 days, to ensure you remain eligible and your inclusive roaming stays turned on. You can submit various documents as proof of UK residency. Find out more
If you fail to submit such evidence, you’ll receive an email advising you of your impending ineligibility for inclusive roaming and an SMS shortly thereafter confirming your inclusive roaming has been switched off. If you submit the required bits at a later stage, (or if we see evidence of UK usage) your inclusive roaming will be turned on again.
Does this mean, regardless of how long you have been with giffgaff, roaming is turned on as soon as you purchase a goodybag and if you don't meet the criteria it will be turned off 14 days after you receive a text/email from giffgaff?
