What is roaming?
Roaming lets you use your Three services in other countries outside the Republic of Ireland. It gives you the freedom to use your phone or device just like home, but in some cases you’ll pay different charges.
Data roaming is the term we use when you browse the internet on your phone while abroad. You use data every time you use the internet on your phone – whether you’re checking email, browsing Instagram or streaming music.
When you go abroad for either business or pleasure, you’ll usually receive a text informing you how much it’ll cost to use data, call or text in that country.
Travelling within the EU: All of our plans include an EU data allowance. For example, our €20 prepay deal includes 8GB roaming and our bill pay plans include up to 12GB roaming allowance. If you’re not sure how much your plan includes, you can check your roaming allowance on your My3 account, listed with your other allowances. For more details on EU roaming and a full list of which countries you can use your EU data allowance in, check out three.ie/roaming
Travelling outside the EU: Customers can roam in any country that Three has a roaming agreement in, but will be charged for all data use. You can learn more about Three’s roaming profiles here.
