How much does it cost to call and navigate abroad?

How much does it cost to call and navigate abroad?

By francesco

Now that the holiday season has almost reached its peak, with August just around the corner, a trip abroad is the best way to take a break from the hustle and bustle of work. The first thought is definitely related to the tariff plan to choose to call and surf through smartphones. For travelers within the EU, the situation is much easier as the European Roaming Regulation has been extended for 10 years. The costs to be able to surf, send SMS and call from the countries involved in the initiative are practically zero, thanks to the option to maintain the same subscription on the go. If it is true that the guaranteed GB are offered in a reduced manner, there is still no need to activate new promotions or change the tariff already in use. Sailing in the countries of the European Union will cost nothing more than what we pay in Italy while outside of them the discourse is completely different and much more chaotic.

Promotions offered by different operators

In addition to being very complex, the situation for people traveling to America, Asia or any country outside the Union is also very expensive. Operators decide for themselves what prices to charge and what to include in the package offered to customers.Β 

  • For example, Vodafone offers a dedicated portal where you need to enter the destination country and the system will automatically suggest the best offers. The most used and appreciated is Travel Mondo, an option valid for 10 days that at a cost of 29.99€ includes 200 minutes of calls (100 incoming and 100 outgoing), 10 sms and 10 GB of navigation. Numbers may vary depending on the country you are heading to. We then find Smart Passport +, a promotion this time daily that costs 3 or 6 euros (always based on the country of destination) includes 500 MB of traffic , 60 minutes (divided in half between exit and entry) and 60 sms to send.Β 
  • Wind Tre, after the unification of the two brands, instead is found unprepared in terms of offers for foreign countries, not proposing specific solutions. It will only be possible to calculate roaming costs per consumption with partner operators around the world. Talk aside for Switzerland, since with 4.99€ you can navigate up to 10GB and have 10 minutes of outgoing calls and 50 incoming. Consumption options also for Fastweb and Iliad, which often offer advantageous rates but no option for non-EU countries.Β 
  • Tim instead has from his well 5b different proposals to remain connected and in communication also in foreign land. The most advantageous is undoubtedly Tim in Viaggio Pass that provides 500 minutes, 500 SMS and 10 GB of navigation, at a cost of 20 euros for a month. But be careful because it is valid only in Canada, the United States and Brazil. But be careful because it is valid only in Canada, the United States and Brazil. For other countries we find instead Tim in Travel Pass World that with 30 euros for 10 days, offers 100 minutes, 100 sms but only 2 GB of traffic.
