Virgin Media O2 will not charge customers for EU roaming

Customers with O2 can use existing data allowance up to 25GB when roaming in Europe

Virgin Media O2 is the only one of four major UK providers not to announce roaming charges for customers travelling in Europe.

Vodafone, EE and Three have confirmed that roaming charges will come into force this year in January, March and May respectively. 

Customers on O2 and Virgin Mobile will be able to use their calls, data and texts all over Europe at no extra cost.

Virgin Media O2 chief commercial officer, mobile, Gareth Turpin said: “We will not be reintroducing roaming fees in Europe for customers on O2 or Virgin Mobile.

“Unlike all the other major mobile networks who are bringing back roaming fees, we will not be following suit. With many Brits now looking to plan a trip abroad, we’ve got our customers covered and extra roaming charges will be one less thing to worry about.”

A recent survey by Virgin Media O2 showed Brits have strong travel intentions in 2022 as 75 per cent of those surveyed expect to travel abroad by the summer.
