Is EU roaming included with my plan?

Most of our plans come with EU roaming, and you can check this on each plan page. If your plan does have EU roaming, it means you can use your Lycamobile in Europe the same way you use it in the UK and any calls you make using your plan won’t cost extra. If you call premium numbers or countries not included in your plan, you will be charged.

Can I use my Lycamobile plan abroad?

No, Lycamobile plans only work in the UK. You can use your plan in Europe if EU roaming is included in your plan. Call rates to Asia will be charged higher in other countries outside the UK.
