Three have come top trumps in the recent announcements from the big UK network providers to scrap roaming charges across Europe and beyond.

The Feel at Home scheme which launched in 2013 allows UK users to travel internationally and not pay extra to use minutes, text or data. Three has claimed that it has saved customers over £2.6 billion in extra costs on bills, but now is set to save customers even more.

The countries now included in the scheme included Aland Islands, Australia, Austria, Azores, Balearic Islands, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canary Islands, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guiana, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Guadeloupe, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Jersey, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Madeira, Malta, Martinique, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Réunion, Romania, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, San Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, US Virgin Islands, USA and Vatican City.

The announcement comes after EE, O2 and Vodafone state which countries they will be offering Free Roaming following the EU regulation which comes into force this June telling network operators that a phone can be used across Europe at no extra charge.
