I am going to Europ countries (Italy, Greece and Switzland) for 2 weeks holiday. I wonder how much I will get charged if I used phone call and 4G over there? Is there any cheaper way to use my phone over there and how?

 

Cheers

@xiaoqingwei, hi there, you will need airtime credit to use phone 📱 abroad and your phone will connect automatically to the local network, goodybags only work in the uk, use free wifi wherever possible to save you money.

If you have an active goodybag you can get roaming a little cheaper than without one.

ON A GOODYBAG
Making a call  
Within eu - 4p/minute
Receiving a call - 0.5p/minute
Sending a txt - 1.5p/text
Receiving a txt - free
Data - 4p/MB
          
NOT ON A GOODYBAG
making a call - 15p/ minute
Receiving a call - 0.5p/minute
Sending a txt - 5p/text
Receiving a txt - free
Data - 5p/MB.

See all the prices here:

For a two week holiday, there is probably not a cheaper way. If you already have a goodybag while in the Uk, then the rates to call back to Uk are only 4ppm, so that is pretty good.

You will need airtime credit to pay for this

You surely can, don't forget to top up credit and also have active goodybag for the best possible prices while on holiday abroad. Enjoy your holiday.
