Better calling rates while outside Europe

By: thesummerbee | 27-05-2015 00:00

Gg has always been my best mate when travelling in Europe because the rates are very reasonable. However, this wasn't the case in my last travel to SE Asia. A one minute call cost £1.00.

I'm hoping that Gg would be able to liaise with more telecommunication companies outside Europe to give us users a better rate. I know this isn't an easy task, but everything starts from somewhere!

Gg, please consider my suggestion to give Gg travellers a better experience, thank you.

I completely agree with this, especially data-wise, because you can easily use a lot of data in a matter of minutes which drains £10 credit you put on.

I've just come back from Egypt and I topped up twice by £10 (£20 in total) when I already had £4.99 and now I have £0.77 left. This credit was used over around 3 days at most (mainly because I had to let family know I was okay seeing as a bomb went off in Cairo) so I do think it's 20p per MB of data is a lot, even more so when data usage gets higher and higher the more time goes by.

Maybe a "Travelbag" type of Goodybag where you pay £10 per week/fortnight/month that gives you 2GB of data and 200 free texts and 200 free minutes which is separate to your normal Goodybag allowances?

Just spouting ideas here but I think it's something a lot of people would spend money on, and if you don't use all of the data, minutes and texts whilst away then you lose it when it expires (because we can't be greedy and request it be added to our current UK plans lol).

We really need this idea implemented.

Great idea, I'd love more competitive rates for non-EU calls.

I rarely leave Europe but the better rates are always welcome.

Better rates when travelling to the U.S.A, or a goodbag for that particular country?

Getting an additional goody bag for period of travel seems a great idea.

Sounds good to me, I'm off to Italy in April wonder how much that will cost depends on EU

Has my vote too.

Even if it’s a question of buying an international Goodybag addon for 70+ countries.

It would need to be some form of addon to mitigate the possibility of a week or fortnight travel requiring 2 months international Goodbags.

I’d also like to see western Europe filled in, I don’t think other networks exclude Monaco and Switzerland for example, O2 certainly include them in their Europe roaming. Andorra seems a bit more hit and miss for coverage.

sounds like a great idea if it's possible. Anything which makes calling cheaper benefits those who are least able to afford current rates
