How does it work?

In any of our 48 Home From Home destinations, when you call, text or use data it will come out of your monthly allowances or bundles.

And while you’re in a Home From Home destination, you can also call or text mobiles and landlines in any other Home From Home destination and it’ll work in exactly the same way.

Home From Home isn’t meant for people who live abroad, so we have some limits to stop that happening. Read our fair usage policy.
