Hi @madzaf 

See help here https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/Roaming-in-Turkey-and-Cyprus-On-PAYG/bc-p/1105917

and prices here http://international.o2.co.uk/internationaltariffs/travelling_abroad 

Get the O2 Travel Bolt On by texting O2TRAVEL to 23336. If you don't activate O2 Travel, you'll then be charged our standard roaming rates. This can take up to 24 hours to be applied to your account.

Just to add to the information above,

Use Wifi when you can. If you can stick to wifi wherever possible you won't incur the the £4.99 daily charge with O2 Travel.

Use apps like messenger, whatsapp and Skype over WiFi, to keep in touch woth friends and family.

This will help to keep cost down.

Also turn voicemail off before you go.
