Currently I am in the UK. But before my good bag runs out I will leave and go to the EU.  Will I be able to purchase a goody bag in the EU and it still work? I read briefly that you have to start a goodbye in the UK before you can use it in the EU. 

 

Also if this does work.  Can I get an unlimited goodybag and use it in the EU after the 20gb.. limit is up?  There would be no point in me getting unlimited if this is the case. Am I able to use it at the reduced speed?

1. It is not an uynlimited goodybag - please see the details.

 

2. When roaming in the EU, data in excess of 20Gb is charged at 0.47p per Mb (less than half a penny per Mb)

Hello
You can buy and queue your goodybag in advance so it starts when yours expires and you can only use 20gb on your goodybag in the eu has the speeds dont reduce after that. And check your roamings on https://giffgaff.com/profile/details#rlah

@freet43

Yes you are right, you can roam with your goodybag in the EU, dont forget to turn on roaming when you get there and restart, if you are staying longer than your goodybag will last i would buy another goodybag that will be queued, and also you can roam with a goodybag for upto approx 92 days, after that period you will need to use airtime credit, as your roaming status will get turned off after approx 92 days.

we will be here if you need help anywy.

so.....dont forget,

 Check that you have a live goodybag or airtime credit by going  here

Your next goodybag will work unless you have been using your phone/SIM elsewhere in the EU/EEA for more than 60 days within the last 4 months.    I suggest two things:

  1. Recur/Buy and queue your next goodybag before you leave the UK;
  2. Use the £20 goodybag (20/21GB) as the £25 one will cost you 0.47p/MB (£4.81/GB) after 20GB has been used and you will also be subjected to reduced speed for 16 hours per day
I do not work for giffgaff, so cannot check anything on your account. This is a public community - please do not post any personal info.
