Unfortunately, it isn't the best in the United Kingdom but it does offer a lot of benefits, for example, Lycamobile is a MVNO (mobile virtual network operator), so it relies on another network, which means they can make their deals more affordable for customers.

Benefits of Lycamobile pay as you go deals

The main advantage of joining a PAYG deal is that it offers cheap prices and customers will be able to choose a bundle that is perfect for them. For example, there are deals that cost less than £20.

One of the benefits of having a PAYG deals is roaming around Europe without extra costs.

The Lycamobile roaming destinations include:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

As a pay as you go members, customers have the flexibility of not being tied down to a lengthy contract. This means people can cancel and change plans at the end of their deal. Students that change their phone plans regularly due to the financial struggle of being a student will benefit from PAYG deals.

Another positive feature about being a PAYG member is that you won't need credit to call other Lycamobile numbers.
