Hey,

 

Just wondering how people use giffgaff abroad? Does it cost a lot extra to send texts? I know on o2 when I'm in the states it costs around 50p per text, which was fine because I only used it for emergencies. How much is it with giffgaff?

Using giffgaff Abroad:

Calls, Texts and Data used whilst outside of the UK are chargeable from CREDIT and NOT GOODYBAG allowances, so you will need to topup.

Charges can be found under the roaming section of  http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing

I was in Italy a week ago,  rates are just like any other network.  The good thing I discovered is that I had excellent reception even in very remote areas including on trains all along every route.

 

RATES:

 

Making calls : 35p/mnt

Recieving cals :11p

sending text : 10p

recieving text : Free

 

Roaming : £1.50/mb  (I advice you to switch data roaming OFF at all time to avoid charges)
