FAQs

Being able to use your phone outside the UK to stay connected with your friends and family.
Roaming in the EU and selected destinations with Always On means that after you’ve used the full 9GB of 4G data, you’ll be charged 0.78p/MB while roaming, or you could start your next plan early.

Inclusive roaming is created for giffgaff members who typically reside in the UK, and is ideal for short trips to other places in the EU. To make things easy, we do a few quick checks for UK usage, just to make sure you meet the basic criteria, before automatically turning on EU roaming as part of your goodybag. Alternatively, you can submit proof of UK residency in other ways. Find out more

If you don’t meet the necessary criteria, or go against our fair usage guidelines, then the inclusive roaming may be switched off. You’ll still be able to use your phone in the EU, but if you have a goodybag you'll be charged 3.2p/minute, 1p/text, 0.78p/MB.

Topping up is easy. Head to giffgaff.com/buy, it’s free to access, even if you’ve run out of credit or topping up from overseas.
Roaming charges can build up. Don’t worry. We recommend switching your phone to flight mode or turning off roaming. More on roaming settings
Just punch in *100# on your phone, and we’ll show you how much credit you have left. It’s free of charge.

Here is a list of countries where roaming is included as part of the giffgaff service

That means you won’t be able to roam in that country, as we don’t have any roaming agreements in that destination.
When travelling, you might get close to a national border. Your phone might pick up a network from across the border. If this happens, you’ll be charged as if you were roaming in the nearby country.
Picking up service in any of the listed countries is dependent on third party contracts and is not guaranteed. Some places are served by networks from other countries and are charged at the price of the network location.
