@integ29 hi there,
Yes, giffgaff members are able to roam in the EU and use the goodybag allowances as they do in the UK.

In order to roam in the EU with the goodybag the roaming option will need to be enabled under your details page here https://giffgaff.com/profile/details#rlah

The goodybag services can be used in the following EU destinations including Norway:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus (South), Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland (including Aland Islands), France (including Corsica, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Mayotte, Reunion, Saint Martin and additionally, Saint Barthelemy), Germany, Gibraltar, Greece (including all islands), Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy (including Sardinia, Sicily, and additionally, San Marino, Vatican City), Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands (but NOT Aruba, Curaçao or Sint Maarten), Norway, Poland, Portugal (including Azores, Madeira), Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain (including Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla), Sweden.

Hello @integ29,
Here’s a complete list of the giffgaff roaming partners (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_NepbefbGnYNGNlNWEyZGItYjEwOS00ZTRmLWI3YWMtZWY4N2VmNTZkZDlj)
Remember BEFORE LEAVE THE UK that you have to turn on roaming in your My account and settings section of My GiffGaff Online.
Remember that you can’t roam in all countries! check if your destination is “compatible with giffgaff” and the relative roaming charges at https://giffgaff.com/roaming-charges
Remember that if you travel in European Countries, like norway, you can use your phone as in the UK without no extra cost up to 4 month. After 4 month you can still continue to use your phone with the following charges:
- 15p/minute when makes a call to UK, Europe (you can call for example Italy) and others selected destinations (you find it at giffgaff.com)
- Free when receive to calls
- 5p/text to UK’s mobile
- Free when receive texts
- 5p/MB of internet (1 GB = 1024 MB)
- 8p per call to voicemail
These charges are applied even when you don’t have any goodybag active but just pay as you go with airtime credit.
The coverage inside the Europe is guaranteed for calls, text and data.
REMEMBER
If you are on the 20£ Always on data Goodybag you’ll be able to use only 9 gigs while in the Europe.

When traveling outside the Europe or roaming on a non-terrestrial network (e.g. on a boat, on a plane, while on the moon, ecc.) there aren’t any option available and usually these are the applied charges (check at https://giffgaff.com/roaming-charges)
- 1£/minute when calling the UK and the voicemail
- For receive calls it usually cost 1£/minute but it may varies (e.g. When in Switzerland calls received are free). You can check it at https://giffgaff.com/roaming-charges
- 30p/text
- Free to receive texts
