Hi yes All giffgaff sims are enabled for use abroad, You can use a goodybag in the EU, with the same benefits as you would see in the UK. This is at no extra cost, apart from on the £25 always On goodybag where additional data is charged £0.006 /MB (that's less than a penny) if you have used over 20GB of data from your Airtime Credit if you have no Airtirme Credit your data will stop. Calls and texts are free to receive

Giffgaff to giffgaff calls are not free to make when you are roaming. In the EU, having a goodybag and calling another giffgaff number will deduct minutes from your allowance like any other standard call. Without a goodybag, the standard pay as you go rates apply

You can now roam like at home, make sure you have roaming switched on here in your account for it to work!

Hi @weezy16 yes you can providing that:

 

  • your phone has the correct internet/MMS settings for giffgaff (and not the O2 ones) http://giff.ly/gg_settings and that mobile data is enabled in its settings
  • data roaming is enabled in your phone's settings
  • Roaming Status is enabled here https://giffgaff.com/profile/details#rlah (note that this setting can only be enabled by the system) to use goodybags' minutes, texts and data allowances in an EU/EEA country

@weezy16  just roam like you where at home. Just remember that if you're calling a UK number you need to add the country code 00 44 and omit the first 0 of the UK number, newer phones will automatically do this for you y buen vacaciones
