Roaming has always given a certain respect to those who have never used it and, especially, if they decide to travel outside of Spain for the first time. It can be a little scary to consider that something will happen and that the bill will become an impossible mission difficult to pay. Fortunately, in the case of Orange, the operator provides very suitable conditions from which you will be able to benefit. What does your roaming support with Orange include?
Roaming in the European Union
All Orange mobile rates, with some exceptions such as bonuses such as Among Us or Free Friends, include support from the European Union, also including coverage for people traveling to three additional destinations: Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland. This means that you will be able enjoy roaming in more than 20 countriesincluding those that usually receive a greater number of Spanish visits, such as France, Italy, Germany, Portugal or Ireland.
The exceptions that are sometimes thought to be included, but are not, are two very specific ones: United Kingdom and Andorra. Previously, Orange did offer roaming coverage in the United Kingdom, but it must be taken into account that the British left the European Union, so this has also affected services such as the one offered by the operator. If you use the mobile in the UK, you would have to face charges of 1 cent per minute for calls and 1 cent per MB for web browsing. The SMS would cost you 25 cents and the calls would have an establishment of 30 cents. In the case of Andorra, its government does not have active agreements or contracts with the operators, so the region is left out of the possibility of using roaming (at least within this category).
In these destinations, roaming It will allow you to keep your call and data rate, also including a series of bonuses for minutes and data that you must take into account before leaving on a trip. For example, with unlimited calls or data from Orange in Spain you will also have unlimited calls in zone 1 roaming, but in general the consumption of minutes and data is similar to what you would do within the country. However, confirm with Orange if you want to have additional confirmation and have more peace of mind.
Roaming in the rest of the world
Orange is aware that it is very possible that your trip would be to a country that does not correspond to zone 1 in which the European Union is located. Also, you might also want to go to UK. For these situations, what you have to do is contact the operator to activate the module known as Everywherewhich does not have any type of permanence or requirement of use.
The interesting thing about this module is that you can activate and deactivate it at will. It does not have a start fee, so you only have to have it active when you go on a trip. You can activate it with two types of bonus: daily or weekly. The daily bonus is activated when you are abroad and you use your mobile, it is always necessary to have enabled the Everywhere module in your contract. It has a cut-off duration of 24 hours and does not allow accumulation from one day to the next. But it is a very comfortable way to travel abroad, since there will be days when you may not use it and others when you will need it. The other option is to use the Everywhere Weekly bonus, which is activated when you make your first use of roaming and then remains active until it runs out once a week has passed.
yes, Orange it does not allow to combine the bonuses, so you’ll need to toggle each one on and off if you want to switch. For example, if you have opted for the daily bonus and now you want to go to the weekly bonus, you will have to deactivate the first and then request the activation of the seven-day bonus.
The question you may be asking yourself is in which countries you can roam Everywhere. What Orange provides is coverage for a total of 32 additional countries. The list includes some of the countries that receive the most tourists in the world, such as the United States, China, Japan, Brazil or Thailand. The complete list can be found on the Orange website. Also, of course, this is the roaming that will cover you in the United Kingdom and Andorra.
