I am travelling throughout India for 6 weeks starting next month and need to know how much calling back to the UK will cost. Also what does the data cost to check emails and whatsapp? How much does texting cost?
Your help is much appreciated.

Good Evening @tonygriffin . When you go abroad, your device will be able to connect to local network providers, so you can carry on using your giffgaff SIM for calls, texts and data. This is called roaming.
Charges can vary depending on where you are travelling to, so be sure to check the roaming pricing page and the extra info in this guide (using your mobile abroad).
You can use Giffgaff in India, but, you cannot use a Goodybag Plan. Goodybags won't work outside of the UK and EU.
You require Airtime Credit top-up to use your SIM in India . Please top up your account to use Giffgaff in your destination.
Roaming prices for India are as follows (checked on 17 January 2018) https://giffgaff.com/roaming-charges
