@Anonymous  You are correct. Switzerland is classed as outside of Europe for PAYG customer 

https://www.o2.co.uk/help/pay-as-you-go/roaming-in-europe

If you’re travelling to Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Monaco or Switzerland you’ll still be opted in to O2 Travel. You’ll get 100MB of data to use in these countries for £1.99 a day, unless you opt out by texting TRAVELOFF to 21300. Find out more about O2 Travel

Yes you can. Just use the phone as you would at home.

I think Switzerland is considered outside of Europ and pay as you go customers pay 4.99 a day ??

France is as in the UK.  This as per the website. o2Travel

I checked today and Switzerland is NO LONGER on the list of countries included in roaming for some plans not just pay as you go

Instead it is back to the 1.99 a day pool

 

There is not trace in news or announcements of when these changes were made

Has this recently been removed? There will obviously be a lot of changes after Brexit and none of them to the benefit of customers.

It's still there in the link I showed @jonsie though not for PAYG customers. It's the same as it was way back in January when I gave my first answer to the post...?
