I'm reading a lot of conflicting information on this topic Smiley Sad Please could someone tell me how much it is to text a UK number currently in Spain. I have a £15 goodybag and no additional credit. My texts are getting through, are they just comg out of my goodybag allowance or will I be charged for them at a later date? Sorry I'm new to giffgaff!

If you are in the UK then contacting a UK mobile abroad is just like a normal call or text for you ( ie same as them being in the UK ). You use goodybag minutes/texts, free gg to gg or PAYG - whatever you normally use.

The other person is liable to pay the roaming rate for making and receiving calls.

It will be taken from the OP's text allowance mate as it's a uk number.

To text a uk registered number is free if you have a gb, anywhere in the world.

if you have no credit and was doing something chargeable it just would not go through. gg can't charge at a later date.
