    Get a special add-on to use abroad. Ring up and ask your provider if it has any special add-ons you can use to slash the cost of calls abroad. Some add-ons are free, others require a daily or monthly fee. With EE for instance, you can buy 120 global roaming minutes for £20 before you travel, and with T-Mobile you can buy an Internet Travel Booster while you're on holiday, which will give you 3MB for £25.

    Should 3mb be 3gb? If not I don't call that money saving!!! :D :money:
    If you don't like what I say slap me around with a large trout and PM me to tell me why.

    Its a shame that some people cant put their phone down when they go on holiday or wait until they find free wifi to use it.

    Is it really that urgent to upload a picture of whatever you are doing to facebook or instagram?

    I await all the people who go to the world cup complaining how they came back to find a massive bill waiting for them.

    Hi Gordon the Moron, thanks for your message. 3MB (not 3GB) is correct, and we have since removed this from the article.
