Following a vote by the EU you will soon be able to use smartphones and tablets across Europe, for the same cost that you do at home.
This welcome move comes following shocking reports that the average holiday maker comes home to a bill Â£120 more than they would usually pay.
Whilst there were already plans to cap Data Roaming charges (A capping rule came into play last year and was due to be reduced further both this year and next year), this latest announcement is great news for anyone that travels abroad.
In the meantime, you still need to be careful 1MB data (the quivalent of downloading 5 webpages or 40 emails) will currently cost you up to 60p but from 1st July 2013 this will come down to 38p. Then from July 2014 the charges will be in line with what you pay at home.
Not having to worry about switching your data roaming on/off will mean that you will be able to do what you are meant to do on holiday….. Relax!!
