GUIDE EXPLAINS YOUR OPTIONS FOR USING GIFFGAFF IN EUROPE/WORLD WIDE, LINKS BELOW FOR FULL DETAILES.
While abroad you need airtime as you can not make calls using GOODYBAG only, guide bellow will explain it all.
At a glance this is how it works,
WITH PLAN Simply means if you have an active goodybag.
WITHOUT THE PLAN is if you have no goodybag and are just using airtime credit.
ON A GOODYBAG
Making a call  
Within eu - 4p/minute
Receiving a call - 0.5p/minute
Sending a txt - 1.5p/text
Receiving a txt - free
Data - 4p/MB       
NOT ON A GOODYBAG
making a call - 15p/ minute
Receiving a call - 0.5p/minute
Sending a txt - 5p/text
Receiving a txt - free
Data - 5p/MB.
YOU ONLY NEED A £5 GOODYBAG to benefit from the "with plan" charges.

Your phone will connect automatically to the local network, goodybag only work in the uk.
Make sure you to top up enough airtime credit before leaving the uk

it will take from air time credit. not goodybag alowance. although you can get cheaper rates with a goodybag

 

 Goodybags allowances only work in the uk .

a UK goodybag in place whilst you were away you would give better airtime credit roaming rates whilst away.
