EE launches new 'Travel Data Pass' and new Data Roaming add-ons in time for Christmas

EE today announced a new Travel Data Pass and new data roaming add-ons for EE pay monthly customers. Available immediately, these new options offer smartphone users even greater value access to the internet when abroad – just in time for the festive season.

Travel Data Pass

The new Travel Data Pass replaces EE’s hugely popular Euro Data Pass to offer customers worry-free phone use in an additional 11 countries, including popular destinations such as Australia, UAE, USA, Canada and Thailand.

Perfect for those wanting to share their holiday selfies, map the quickest route to their next destination, or simply check email, customers will receive 500MB of data each and every day for the duration of their trip.

So whether you’re planning on celebrating New Year in Times Square, getting away from the cold with some sun Down Under or sampling the Hamburg Christmas markets, you can relax and post photos on Facebook or Instagram, and send messages via WhatsApp – with no surprise bills when you get back.

With EE, customers will never pay for more data than they choose to buy so there’s no need to worry about nasty bill surprises. Travel Data Pass is available immediately to EE pay monthly mobile customers on 4GEE Standard, 4GEE Extra and 4GEE Essentials plans.

Travel Data Pass Pricing:

500MB available each day in Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, UAE, India, Thailand, Mexico, South Africa & China

Current users of the Euro Data Pass will be automatically transferred over to Travel Data Pass and enjoy these new benefits when they next travel to any of the listed countries.

To opt-in to Travel Data Pass benefits, EE customers should simply text the word TRAVEL to 150 using their phone and they will automatically be enrolled for the duration of their contract. There is no need to remove it upon return to the UK and users will only be charged on the days they use mobile data abroad in an included country.

New Data Roaming Add-Ons

This winter EE is also boosting the allowance in data roaming add-ons for customers visiting International Zones B, C and D – helping to make it more affordable than ever to stay connected abroad.
