Yes you just need lots of credit and roaming activated because using this network in another country has cknsuderbly high charges.

I have found with giffgaff to giffgaff overseas that it is free for the person in the UK to Call/Text although the charges now state otherwise. This was for the U.S.A.

I suggest turning your data off to avoid rinsing credit. The plus point with Giffgaff is that as it is PAYG there are no nasty £900 bills that cost more than your holiday to Majorca because your data was running.
