O2, BT and more: find out which mobile networks have no roaming charges in the EU UK News

If you’re heading for your first EU break since Brexit, you may be trying to figure out what changes will be made to your trip.

You want to make sure you avoid any unnecessary delays or charges for your long-awaited break.

Once you’ve charged these charges, you may not realize you’re racking up EU roaming charges. If your mobile network has these charges, you could unknowingly be spending a small fortune on calls and texts.

To help you save some holiday pennies, we’ve put together a list of some of the mobile networks that offer free roaming in the EU and how you can sign up.

Mobile networks without roaming charges in the EU


With Tesco mobile, 48 countries called ‘Home to Home’ will allow you to use your phone as normal, with texts and calls coming from your allowance as usual. This will still be the case for 2022.

You can sign up for a Tesco mobile SIM card or plan here.


O2 also offers EU roaming as part of its plans. Your data (subject to a roaming limit), minutes and SMS quotas will work in O2’s Europe zone, just like at home.
