Martin Lewis warns millions of Brits after EE axes free roaming in Europe

The founder of the Money Saving Expert website has issued a warning to millions of Brits.

Martin Lewis told phone users that EE confirmed it is bringing back its EU roaming charges back.

In a reply on Twitter, he said more telecom companies could follow in reintroducing the fees for holidaymakers in Europe.

Ahead of the changes, he said: "News. I'm hearing, later today, EE will be announcing its reintroducing EU roaming charges from Jan.”

"This isn't about the O2 fair use discussion earlier, this looks like it may be full blown charges that wouldn’t have been allowed under EU rules. More when we know."

One Twitter followed replied to the guru: "The rest will follow I presume Martin?"

He replied: "Yes this is the first real break in the ranks and sadly others will likely follow, but I doubt it will be universal, I suspect some will keep their EU roaming as it is now.

"Three for example always made a great play of its roaming packages and it was to its competitive advantage."

It follows after EE confirmed it would bring in a flat fee of £2 per day for customers to use their phones in 47 countries.

Starting from January 2022, it applies to customers who sign up to a new contract or renew their existing one after July 7, 2021.

Three has revealed that its "fair use" limit for data while in the EU will reduce from 20GB per month to 12GV from July 1.

Meanwhile Vodafone and Voxi have both confirmed they have no plans to change their current mobile roaming policies.
