Buying travel pass abroad - will a text to 23456 work outside UK (in Europe)

As per subject line - I'm wondering whether I have to buy a travelpass before I leave the UK. I'm not sure whether I need a travelpass so would rather wait until I arrive in destination (EU country - central Europe).

However its not clear (to me) whether I can do this or not once I reach the destination.

Advice and experiences welcome - thanks.

Hi Sydders13,

 

you can purchase an EU Data Travel Pass by text once outside of the UK and it starts straight away and can last upto 30 days.

You best to buy it before you go I normally  ring them as texting them doesn't  seem to work when I text them the passes last 30 days so you buy it in advance just remember  to turn your data off when your not using it I'm off to spain Tuesday so ill buy a pass monday hope this helps you ?

Hi Sydders13 Smiley Happy

 

Thank you for your message, it's great to see you've had some help already on this Smiley Happy

 

Both are correct but texting is mainly done while you're out there. How is the holiday so far? if you need anything please let me know Smiley Happy

 

Take care.

Ben
