Goodbye Roaming Charges, Hello Europe!

Have you heard? From mid June onwards roaming charges for certain mobile plans in the European Union have been dropped. That means there’s a good chance you can now travel across Europe and use your data without worrying about extra charges. Say goodbye to surprise bills from your mobile provider at the end of the month after a two week holiday at the Costa del Sol. Say goodbye to hunting down cafes that offer WiFi across Paris and weak hotel WiFi in Portugal.

And the best part for CoPilot fans?

  1. You will now be able to use ActiveTraffic when driving abroad without paying a hefty bill at the end of the month if you have a good mobile plan. Check out our map coverage page to see in which countries in Europe you can use ActiveTraffic.
  2. You can still take advantage of CoPilot’s offline capability if you’re driving in areas with low data coverage. Say goodbye to interrupted service (looking at you, Alps!).
  3. If you have a monthly cap on your data usage, you can still use CoPilot’s offline maps to minimise data usage.

So check in with your mobile provider and see how your data plan abroad has changed. Happy travels!

PS: If you’re going to the US or other places around the world, roaming charges will likely still apply. So make sure to turn off your data roaming if you want to avoid hefty bills.
