Anyone who travels frequently will know how expensive roaming charges are, often times it is better to pick up a local SIM and use that while you're in that country. However, this isn't always convenient if you need to travel to many locations. Back in June 2013, the European Union announced their plan to scrap roaming fees starting from July 2014. However, this is only for those who reside within the EU and will travel within the EU.
U.K. carrier, Three, are now offering what they call Feel At Home to its customers. It allows you to use your current plan abroad at no extra cost. You can call, text and even use data and it will just come out of your montly allowance. This definitely makes Three very appealing if you will be travelling.
At the moment, this works in seven countries -Â Austria, Australia, Denmark, Hong Kong, Italy, the Republic of Ireland and Sweden. The offer is available to all Three customers, whether you're on pay monthly, SIM only, pay as you go or on a business plan. This offer is even available to those who just use Mobile Broadband.
There's no setting up required either. Once you pick up a carrier in the participating countries, you're all set to go. It looks like more countries will be added in the future. This will certainly make Three very a very enticing carrier for those who will be travelling a lot, at least to those countries. You could just pick up a Three pay as you go SIMÂ and use that. For Â£15 you can get 300 mins, 3000 texts and unlimited data and lasts for 30 days. There are some limitations but unless you go over 25GB of data in a month, you should be okay. Hopefully can see more countries added to that list sooner, rather than later.Â
