Allow Goodybags to be used in EU

By: deffers90 | 03-04-2014 15:05

When the scrapping of roaming charges comes into force later on next year (see bbc news story
http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-26866966 ) I propose that we are able to use our normal goodybag allowance with in the EU.

I'm not if this would be in the pipeline or not but I know networks aren't allowed to charge more for calls etc than in their country of origin, but I think it would be popular with other giffgaffers

Three has already paved the way in this area with their agreements across many EU countries to abolish roaming charges and would be a factor in me returning to Three.  Choosing between Giffgaff and three was my dilemma.  If the giffgaff goodybags covered EU too then there would be no decision to make!

This is a very good idea. Why not implement something similar to O2's travel bolt-on? To be honest, the lack of some kind of roaming allowance inthe EU is preventing me from using Giffgaff completely. But I do hope something comes of this request.

This is a great idea and I'm sure would generate more business for giffgaff if it were implemented.

yes that would be amazing! Giffgaff is already a pretty popular network but just think about how much more popular it would become if we could use our regular goodybags in the EU.

I often go abroad within the EU (belgium/france/switzerland etc) and not having to pay roaming costs would be fantastic.

Giffgaff please implement this!

Hey all. Just as a quick note - we have not forgotten about this idea.

We like this in theory but there are some EU-wide regulation changes coming at the tail end of this year which will ultimately decide how we can best tackle this. The EU so far have said/announced what they’d like to do, it’s being consulted and discussed right now and in the next few months we will find out what the plans are for EU regulations around roaming. This will help us define our own plans and inform our research. Keep supporting this idea if this is something that you are keen on.

Absolutely agree. I make lots of phonecalles abroad and when abroad and there is no reason why one goodybag cannot cater for all.

It would be great to be able to use our data and goodybags abroad!
