Vodafone to let you roam in Europe at UK prices

Plus, of course, a small daily consideration

The essential guide to IT transformation

New European Commission-imposed EU mobile data roaming price regulations kick in on Sunday, and Vodafone has announced a modification of its European roaming package.

The new arrangement, Vodafone Euro Traveller, allows Brits to pay no more for calls, messages and data when they're on the continent as they do at home, Extras excluded - provided they cough up a further £3 a day.

It's an opt-in package: users have to calling 5555 or text ADD to 40506, or they'll miss out. It's only available to pay monthly customers; PAYG-ers don't get a look-in.

Once you're in, you're in. On subsequent days, using your phone in Europe will automatically trigger the addition of £3 to your monthly bill. Opting in automatically opts you out of exsiting roaming deals.

You also opt out of the €50 monthly internet cap.

PAYG punters currently pay £2 a day for 25MB of data when travelling in Europe, which is what pay-monthly customers will pay if they don't opt in to Euro Traveller or one of Vodafone's other roaming packages. Full details at Vodafone's website. ®
