I seem to be on a travel theme today.

From June 2017, there will be no roaming charge for using your mobile phone in other EU countries. Is the EU great or what? It is good but the deal is wider than that. Non-EU countries in the European Economic Area are also covered by these rules, so if the UK joined the EEA or just negotiated to keep the system in place, roaming charges might not be affected. Anyway it is not correct to imply that this benefit is definitely dependent on our staying in the EU.

I don’t care either way but that’s cos I’m an old fart and never use my phone when I’m on holiday, I’m trying to get away from it all. But I realise that it’s important to you young cyborgs and business people who travel:)


One thought on “PHONE CHARGES

  1. I googled to see if we are already part of the EEA and this is what the gov website says:

    The EEA includes EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. It allows them to be part of the EU’s single market.

    Switzerland is neither an EU nor EEA member but is part of the single market – this means Swiss nationals have the same rights to live and work in the UK as other EEA nationals.
