I’m a Vodafone user. Every time I come to Spain I’m advised to switch on the Europe Traveller service. For only £3 a day, they tell me, I can use the calls and texts in my UK bundle. Just for fun, I did, then made a short phone call to my daughter to test out a claim that I also saw on the Vodacrap website, that under my ‘Big Red Value Bundle’ the call would then be free. It wasn’t; they lied. Cost me £3. If did did leave the service switched on and sent a couple of texts each day, and made a couple of calls, my normal usage, they would cost me an extra £90 plus VAT on my monthly bill.

My Vodacrap contract is up in a couple of months. I am counting the days.

    We only use a pay as you go. That, together with a Skype connection is all we have needed for years. Apart from a strong objection to paying for receiving a call – which is an unbelievable con, simply changing the SI card when travelling between Spain and the UK solved our mobile mobility problems. The cost of mobile phones horrifies us, and we only use ours in emergencies.
