Albania is a Roam-further destination

As this is a Roam-further destination you’ll only be charged £6 a day to use your UK allowance of data, minutes and texts.

Good ole Vodafone. Just like in Israel, £6 a day to take your contract with you.

I don't really seeing me using my phone much this trip and certainly won't be spending a score to use my own contract.

If anyone wants me they'll get me in the pub.

Intresting, back to basics from the Tartan Army. 

With the price of a pint circa £1, I don’t begrudge a few extra quid so I can do the touristy stuff using my Google Maps to navigate.

I just use my phone to take pics and find out how the missus and kids are a few times a day. WiFi will do fine for that. Might actually get a conversation out my pals now too.

Dinnae phone me for a pint catch up,  just text. Saves me having to decode your West Coast accent in a packed boozer. 😋

Not so sure. My old man tried that in Australia. (He was out there visiting my brother for a couple of months). Had a Vodafone UK iPhone used a Vodafone Oz sim. It didn’t work As the phone was locked to Vodafone UK. Vodafone Australia explained that although they are both Vodafone they are essentially different companies.

Conversely my brother in law who also lives in Australia was over two years ago and because he had an unlocked iPhone, he just picked up a pay monthly sim for the month he was back over and whammed it in.

Aye Israel was an eye opener. An extra 40 odd quid on the phone bill

You must be o2? I was the same, I got a text saying if I wanted to use anymore data I had to reply to the text and it would cost £200

My old phone always automatically turned my data roaming off but my new phone didn’t

Nah Vodafone. I took the hump with O2 but ended up just going like for like by the looks of it. I was getting some texts but stupidly ignored them. Got too used to using my phone hassle free in the EU. Lesson learned

I tell a lie, it might only have been £120 for more data but even at that it’s a liberty

For navigating about you can download cities on google maps in advance to use offline. I did it for Tel Aviv and it was extremely useful.
