European Rates

Hi, I have dialed 2202 to select European Rates but can't seem to find an option for this.  On pay and go, are we automatically on European rates?  A text I sent to Switzerland recently cost me 10p as opposed to 8p.  I'm looking to travel to Switzerland soon.  Any help much appreciated, thanks!
