There is only one way to get roaming on your SIM and that is to join any Lycamobile SIM only or pay as you go deal. Activate roaming on your mobile then travel around the EU with the feeling of using your SIM like you're at home.

Where can I go to with Lycamobile Roaming?

If you have plans to travel around Europe then you will be pleased to know that it won't cost you any extra payments but your current plan.

The destinations that include Lycamobile roaming are 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.

Clients can relax on the beaches of Valencia, Spain or visit the Eiffel tower in Paris, France and showcase their endeavours on their Instagram and Facebook with Lycamobile data roaming.

The idea is to give customers the feeling of using their SIM plans around the EU like they're at home, making calls, sending texts and browsing on their favourite social media platform without paying extra costs.

Does roaming charge for Pay as you go customers?

No, for all PAYG clients you will be able to roam around the EU for free. However, there are domestic rates that may affect some customers.

Below are the rates:

  • UK Landlines – 12p/min
  • UK Mobile (Lycamobile) – 5p/min
  • UK Mobiles (Other mobile) – 15p/min
  • SMS (Lycamobile) - 5p
  • SMS (Other mobile) – 6p
  • Data – 12p/MB

How do I activate roaming on my smartphone?

Usually when you sign up to a Lycamobile SIM plan you will already have roaming activated on your smartphone. However, if roaming is not working clients can simply restart their mobiles and roaming should immediately start working.

The type of mobile clients have may be a factor if your roaming is not automatically activated, so customers can either read the manual of their phone or search it up online to resolve this problem.


Can I roam outside the EU?

Of course, clients are able to roam beyond Europe, however, it will cost members extra depending on where they travel to. For example, Lycamobile roaming India will cost customers different rates compared to other countries.

Fortunately, Lycamobile has set up recommended plans that allow clients to roam outside Europe such as Bangladesh, Nigeria and Pakistan.

If the country you are looking for is not part of Lycamobile's recommended plans, then use the Official Website to select the country of where you want to roam to find out the rates.


How to select the right SIM only deal with roaming

As you already know, every plan offers free roaming around the EU, but it is important to learn about the five different types of plans that give you roaming.

National plans are best suited for people who want to be based mostly in the UK, so it is not the best deals for roaming unless customers plan to travel within the United Kingdom.

International deals will be the best plan for customers who want cheap roaming rates especially international calling and texts.

Student deals offers some of the cheapest SIM only options in the UK, which is ideal for students that don't have a standard income.

Roaming Data bundle offers a plan with only data and no texts or calls, with all the communication apps that customers can download, having only data will allow people to stay connected while abroad.

Whatever plan clients choose they will have access to roaming free of charge around Europe and, if they need to travel outside the EU, they can check the rates of the country via website before heading there.
