#Brexit: EU roaming cap for mobile phone calls may not apply to Brits

Is this part of the hidden cost of Brexit?

A document leaked from the European Parliament suggests that British tourists will still have to pay mobile phone operators’ roaming charges when they travel in the EU after Brexit.

While the European Commission announced last week that, from June this year, ‘consumers will be able to call, send SMS or surf on their mobile at the same price they pay at home’ when travelling in the EU, the European parliament committee that helped pioneer the legislation has now called into doubt whether this agreement can apply to British customers.

    As someone who turns off their phone when abroad it doesn’t bother me in the slightest, I don’t want to be contacted whilst on holiday or spend time on social media, I go for a holiday and maybe look around the area I am in, if my condition allows it.

      Maybe everyone isn’t so insular as you.

      I don’t tend to use social media abroad either but that doesn’t mean I don’t use a phone for its primary purpose (shock, horror). I often go off to do different things from my husband and call to meet up. Sometimes I even like to book a restaurant or call a taxi. I might even want to contact an owner I am renting from. And that’s just some of the greedy personal things I might want.

      Overseas business trips will be affected as well and to a far worse extent. Workers travelling abroad will always have to contact their UK base regularly, usually at the high day rates too.

      As usual, your post makes you out to be someone who doesn’t give a sh*t about anyone else but yourself.
