Where exactly are you, @Donna1963 ?

This https://www.o2.co.uk/international/using-your-phone-abroad  has all the options open to you, depending on where you are, and also shows you PAYG as well as Contract (Pay Monthly) cost and bolt-ons needed.

Note if you are in Europe, most countries need no special Bolt-On, check here: Guide: Roaming MegaGuide 

Enjoy your time abroad, wherever you are, @Donna1963.

Receiving text messages is the only thing you get for free outside of the EU.

To avoid any charges at all, leave your phone at home.
