Orange UK for France

without comments

The provider’s PAYG customers will be able to top-up while being in France and thus lowering their roaming costs.

orangeThe fruity operator presented a new deal for pay as you go customers that travel for business or pleasure to France.  The offer gives any Orange UK pay as you go SIM card owner a possibility to get a top-up in France for €39.99 (ca. £34). Such top-up will give an allowance of 120 minutes, 1000 texts and 1GB of data to be used in France or when calling the rest of the world. However, you only have 14 days to use it up. Should this be not enough, you can obtain an additional top-up for €30 (ca. £25) which will give you the same allowance as the previous one.

The top-ups will be widely available in France as you will be able to get them in Orange stores, supermarkets, petrol stations and newsagents all over the country.

Definitely it is a step forward to minimizing the costs incurred due to roaming fees, but still the top-up value seems a bit high for the allowance offered. Nevertheless, at least Orange UK pay as you go users will not have to worry about the state of their PAYG accounts while in France, because they will always have an opportunity to top it up virtually anywhere.

New O2 roaming bundle

O2 roaming

O2 roaming

O2 UK did not wait too long to react to the EU vote for slashing the roaming rates. The operator announced the launch of a new package called O2 Travel (O2 roaming). It offers 25MB of data a day for £1.99 to both contract customers and pay-as-you-go SIM owners. Additionally, contract holders will also be allowed to use their monthly call allowance when travelling in Europe, but an extra fee of 50p per call will be charged. Such an option will not be accessible if you have an O2 PAYG SIM card, but still those people will pay the maximum of 29p/minute for making calls and 8p for receiving them (in accordance with the new EU law). O2 Travel will become in offer, because according to research, 60 per cent of Brits used data while abroad and O2 wants them to still do it but without worrying about getting a high mobile phone bill. This new bundle will be available in the upcoming summer from July 1, the same day as the new EU regulations come into force.
