Hi @JulieM 

Info about Cape Verde here http://international.o2.co.uk/internationaltariffs/travelling_abroad# 

Give customer services a call before you go to make sure there are no roaming bars on your account

Also a good idea to make full use of Wifi whenever you are able. It cuts down on roaming costs.

Turn Voicemail off as you will be charged.

 

Edited to add, you are eligible for O2 travel at £4.99 per day https://www.o2.co.uk/shop/international/using-phone-abroad 

If you've got a Pay Monthly sim, text O2TRAVELto 23336. If you've got a Pay As You Go sim, text TRAVELON to 21300.

Unless you want to come back to a huge bill, use wifi only, turn off data and data roaming and make calls over Whatsapp or Facebook messenger etc whilst on WiFi.

Data is £7.20 per mb so your average email will cost you £360 to download.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
