EE launches new Euro Pass to let you use 4G abroad from just £3 per day
EE has announced a new Euro Pass for customers who wish to take advantage of unlimited calls, texts and data allowances abroad. From just £3 a day, you'll be able to call and text all your friends while lying on the beach, accompanied by up to 100MB of 4G per day. This new add-on is available in 39 European destinations.
A £4 charge per day is in place for those who are not on 4GEE Extra plans. If you happen to be on said tariffs, the charge will be cut to £3 per day. It's not a bad deal, though we're all eagerly awaiting the next few years when data roaming charges will be abolished altogether across Europe. Should you go above your 100MB allowance for that day, you'll be locked to slower speeds but will have 400MB of data on top of the 100MB already used up.
EE states that you'll be unable to go over your allowance, meaning you should return back home without fear of receiving a nasty bill. To get started, you need to text EUROPASS (4GEE Extra plan holders) or EURODATA to 150 and the charge will be deducted automatically while abroad and when you use your mobile phone.
As always, we do recommend you either pop in-store to chat to EE about roaming abroad if you remain unsure exactly what will be charged to your account. For more details online, visit the EE website.
EE, the UK's most advanced digital communications company, today launched 'Euro Pass', offering customers the option of unlimited calls and texts, and a data allowance (with 4G where available) each day when abroad in Europe – for just £4 a day.
Available to EE Pay Monthly, SIM Only and small business customers, with Euro Pass there is now no need to get separate talk, text and data add-ons when heading across the Channel. Customers on 4GEE Extra plans who already benefit from unlimited calls and texts in 39 Europe Zone destinations* can now add the Euro Data Pass to get 100MB of data for just £3 a day.
With Euro Pass, customers get unlimited calls and texts to standard UK and Europe Zone numbers so customers can call home to let their parents know they arrived safely as well as book a table at a local restaurant for the evening.
With both Euro Pass and Euro Data Pass, if a customer needs more than their 100MB full-speed allowance, they will receive 400MB at no extra charge for browsing, messaging and using social media at a slower speed. Alternatively they can choose from one of EE's great value roaming data add-ons. The customer is always in control and they can't run over their allowance, so they'll never get an unexpected bill.
What's more, EE's new passes are all on top of customers' home allowances, meaning the minutes, texts and data used abroad don't come out of their UK monthly plan allowance or incur out of bundle charges.
EE customers can opt-in any time - in the UK before they travel or when they're abroad – by texting EUROPASS or EURODATA to 150. Once it's added to their account, customers only pay on days they use their phone in EE's Europe Zone, so there's no need to take it off when they come home.
The new passes add to EE's range of roaming offers for Europe and the Rest of the World. With EE's roaming data add-ons you only ever pay for what you choose – there are no run on rates and no unexpected data roaming charges. This summer, EE has also introduced new data add-ons outside Europe starting from £5.
In addition to EE's Euro Pass for consumers and small business customers, EE offers 4G roaming in over 45 destinations worldwide. EE also offers 4G roaming in a growing list of countries to corporate customers as well, providing superfast data speeds overseas with excellent value and cost control thanks to new EE Business Data Traveller plans.
