Data Passport

Our Data Passport can help you stay connected and save money on roaming charges when you travel. Available in 89 destinations worldwide, the Data Passport gives you the freedom of unlimited data. You can use as much as you like, all for £5 a day. 

The Data Passport is perfect if you use a lot of data and want the best internet experience on your travels. Everything’s unlimited, so you can:

  • stream videos 
  • stream music 
  • connect to Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). 

It also lets you use your device as a personal hotspot.

How does a Data Passport work?

Once you’ve activated your Data Passport, you can use as much data as you want, for 24 hours. So, if you activate it at 13:00, you’ll have unlimited data to use as you like until 12:59 the next day. 

Remember, Data Passports are only for data – roaming rates will still apply for sending texts and making calls. 

You can buy as many Data Passports as you think you’ll need in advance.

If you run out of Data Passports, you’ll be charged the standard roaming rates as per your contract.

Data Passports only work in select countries, so if you’ve got an active Data Passport and travel to a destination that isn’t valid, you’ll be charged the standard roaming rates as per your plan. But don’t worry - we’ll send you a text when you arrive, so you know what the charges are. And you can always turn data roaming off to avoid extra costs.
