Hello. Just get credit for calls and text. Use wifi when available. Download map on your phone if you need to check it. It works without data anyway.

Hi,

Goodybags are uk only so you will need airtime credit.

Pricing is here http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing

Hi. You will need airtime credit to use your phone in Canada as goodybags are UK only.

However the roaming tariffs for Canada are expensive: £1/min to make and receive calls and £5/MB for data! So I suggest you get a local SIM when you land and use free wifi whenever possible.

@supermac74

 

Only one tip: Pick up a local PAYG SIM on arrival.

 

Making and receiving calls on your giffgaff SIM while in Canada will cost £1/min and data a whopping £5/MB

 

A 'local' SIM WILL be far cheaper.
