Normally the UK operators take a hammering over the expensive costs they charge for us to take our phones abroad.

O2 seem to have been listening.

My Europe is a free service (35p per minute incoming & outgoing calls) you just need to register.

The next time you travel to Europe you'll find we've lowered our rates


My Europe Extra

My Europe Extra - Pay Monthly abroad - Travelling abroad - International - O2

For a tenner a month I can receive & make up to 1000 minutes of calls free whilst away and all my outgoing calls will be charged at 25 pence a minute.


The one gotcha is that as with all O2 tariff changes it takes effect at your next billing date, so organise well in advance (you can put it on as a one month only charge or as a rolling subscription)

Getting there (like british rail )!

Nice but still more expensive than my O2 contract :frown:
300 minutes sent or recieved calls anywhere in europe at anytime for £50 per month :teeth:
plus I never get charged for texts (only 4/5 a month anyway)

The 1 good thing with yours is that you can put it on for 1 month only

oh the txts for Europe can come off your normal txt bundles, So I have 800 bundled txts per month in the UK however every one I send in Europe will take up 4 of my 800 effectively giving me 200 European txts.

I didn't know they had an bundled minute call packages for Europe, when I called they didn't say anything about that to me... mmh. might have to call them back.

They haven't

Not anymore .It's a very old tafiff called "one rate " just after I got it was stopped because of me :redface: I screwed themm through the floor due to their wording on the contract they lost out :teeth: .They tried saying that it was only the UK part of the call that was free but the wording stated "any call in europe ,pay nothing " they were screwed ! I told a lot of people who already had the contract & hadn't picked up on the wording & they claimed it all back .

Hi guys,

I've just had a look at the o2 site and its seems that you can txt in your request for the my europe extra and it takes effect 48 hours afterwards, so it's a bit quicker than you though.

Cheers
