    O2 have announced they are extending their coverage outside Europe. It isn't cheap at £4.99 a day but their existing £1.99 covers every country in Europe and I use it when Three isn't available.

    From 14 July, we're extending our O2 Travel service to cover 30 new destinations outside of Europe.

    As you're already on O2 Travel, you'll get data, minutes and texts in 30 new destinations outside of Europe and in the existing European O2 Travel destinations.

    What is O2 Travel?

    In Europe, O2 Travel will continue to work as normal. For £1.99 a day you'll get all the data you need, 120 minutes to make and receive calls and 120 texts to use each day within European O2 Travel destination and back to the UK.

    O2 Travel provides a separate allowance of data, minutes and texts while you're away and will not affect your standard UK tariff allowances. Voicemail (901) is included in the cost.

    Any unused data, calls and texts won't be carried over to the following day.
