Taking your phone abroad? Things are simple when you’re travelling abroad with Sure, with roaming partners all around the world.

Roaming is how we describe calling, texting and using data while you are abroad, including the UK.

Travel Boosters

If you are a Pay Monthly customer, we recommend choosing a booster to reduce the cost of roaming; the £5 Roaming Booster is ideal if you travel occasionally, or if you are a regular traveler and want to use a lot of data, we recommend our £20 Smart Roamer Booster.

Helpful advice

Before you go.....

Make sure you know how to turn data roaming on and off on your phone - this allows you to access the internet and some apps when abroad. We have some screen shots here - that can help you with this.

If you do want to use data while roaming, we can also help with data roaming costs. Most of our customers already have a data roaming spend limit in place to cap the usage and prevent large bills. Click here for more information on how this works then call us to check if your limit is suitable or, to bar data access altogether, text the word "BAR" to 8888. 

If you are a Pay As You Go customer, make sure you have sufficient credit. 

While you are away.....

We recommend that you use local free WiFi to cut down on costs wherever you can.

Avoid calling premium or non-geographic numbers. Premium numbers usually start with (but are not limited to) 09 and these numbers can be very expensive.

You may also want to switch off your voicemail while you are abroad. Accessing your voicemail while abroad is different to accessing it when at home and you may be charged for receiving a voicemail, because the call needs to be forwarded to you wherever you are. You will be charged for the call to your voicemail to hear the message when abroad. Click here for more information on using voicemail when travelling.

To help to keep costs down avoid streaming films, videos or music while you are abroad and try to limit using data to social media updates, some Googling and a bit of map checking.

And remember... turn data roaming off if you don't need it!

If you need to contact us when you are away just call +44 1481 700700 (charge applies).
