Mobile roaming costs

In four months, calling, texting and going online from your mobile phone when travelling in the EU will become even cheaper than it is now, with a maximum difference of €0.05 compared to the price at home.

When you use your mobile phone in other EU countries – to call, text (send SMS messages) or go online – there’s a limit on what your operator can charge you.

Throughout the EU, the “Eurotariff” for roaming means the cost of using these services is capped – to put a stop to excessive prices.

Notification of prices

When you cross a border within the EU, your mobile operator must send you a text telling you the price for making and receiving calls, texting and going online (data download) in the EU country you’ve just entered.

Protection against “bill shock”

To protect you against excessive data roaming bills, the volume of downloaded data on your mobile device is capped, worldwide, at €50 (or the equivalent in another currency), unless you have agreed to a different limit with your operator. You will also receive a warning when you reach 80% of this agreed limit.
