Free Roaming in All EU-Countries with All German Carriers!

posted in: Allgemein, Mobile Service | 0
Free EU Roaming with German SIM Card
Free roaming in all countries of the European Union (+ Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland) starting from June 15, 2017!

The EU commission has passed the “Roaming-directive”, which states that  – starting from 15th June 2017 – no German mobile phone carrier can charge you high roaming fees when you are traveling to another EU country (Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland are included as well). This directive has been long-awaited and is extremely convenient for anyone living in the European Union or tourists who want to travel through a couple of European countries. Please note that Switzerland is not part of the EU, but Deutsche Telekom‘s SIM card deal includes free data roaming in Switzerland (see here).

What is included in German mobile phone plans?

Generally, if you booked any package with included minutes, text messages (SMS) or data, you will be able to use that package in all EU countries at no extra cost. This directive is only valid within the EU: You can only use your minutes and text messages (SMS) for calls/SMS to Germanywithin that foreign EU-country, or to another EU-country. If you need to make calls to a third foreign country, which is not part of the EU, you will be charged roaming fees.

We will give you an overview of some of the most popular German carriers: O2, Vodafone and Congstar.

This table lists the prices for the situation that you are using the German phone plan in another EU-country, e.g. France.
