EU mobile phone roaming charges dropped - Thu 08th June 2017

Free mobile Roaming charges have been a long time in coming about, but thanks to EU rules on roaming charges it has finally come about and starts on the 15th June 2017, whereupon all roaming mobile phone charges will cease when you travel to Spain, or other EEC countries.

However, it is being pointed out by moneysavingexpert   that if your deal with your provider is a very low tariff one then you could still be affected if you go over certain usage levels, so it’s therefore important to check before you travel what your limits are, if any.

Also, do note that if you are traveling to the Pyrenees in Andorra then roaming charges will continue to apply. If you’re perhaps taking a beautiful scenic detour to Spain via andorra for a short period of time then it probably hardly matters, but if you intend staying a few weeks then you can consider getting a Sim card to put into your phone: available from the local telephone provider in Andorra la Vella itself, for which the cost is around 15 Euros.
