Hoe to save on your mobile costs

To avoid the extra charges you could immediately disable mobile data as soon as you land and try to find free Wi-Fi networks to get online.

Setting a spending cap on your mobile can stop you from building up unexpected costs from calls, texts or data.

It’s also possible to avoid EE’s EU roaming costs by switching to other networks that offer customers a free allowance when travelling.

例如, O2 allows its customers to use their data, minutes and text allowances as usual abroad – 和 limits on internet usage in place.

You can only use up to 25GB of your data at no extra cost when you’re travelling in Europe but you’ll be charged £3.50 per gigabyte after you hit the limit.

然而, don’t just switch contracts because the roaming price is cheaperthis obviously should depend on how much you travel to Europe.

You should take a look at how many minutes and texts, as well as how much data you’re using, to find out which deal is best for you.

And if you’re still in your contract period, you might be charged an exit fee.

It’s worth using comparison websites, 如 MoneySupermarketuSwitch.com, to compare tarrifs and phone prices.

Martin Lewis has urged everyone to do a broadband and mobile bill check – and you could save £200 a year.

Money Saving Expert has a comparison tool for for cheap mobile deals 也.

When comparing what’s on offer check it’s the right speeds or data for your needs.

You don’t want to end up going over data allowances and paying more than expected, 例如, but equally you don’t want to spend money on data you don’t use.

You might also want to check you get signal where you are and you can do that using Ofcom’s coverage checker.
