I was glad in a way that O2 had lifted the £1.99/ 15Mb (6 months earlier it was 25Mb)
I was using my iPhone with the TomTom App and using the traffic which was worthwhile in a few occasions.
Also used my device as a personal hotspot to upload drivers card to web, and didn't notice any difference in speed than back here in UK.
I did try using the O2 Travel App where it was supposed to tell you how much data you were supposed to be using on a daily basis, but it said I wasn't roaming? I did check the My O2 App and that did show the additional charges for the days I had data turned on.
If I needed to upload anything then I waited until somewhere that had wifi.
One thing to bear in mind if trying to use phone on Ferry, is to check what network you are on, as the Ships Network can be a tad expensive!

Glad you had a good experience
Quite a few people have fallen victim to the extortionate charges on ships and ferries and come home to very large bills!

This just shows that O2 Travel is not what it should be.
More and more people on here moan regarding O2 Travel.
I think it's a superb Idea, however it needs better Mangement of it. So it needs to change and clearly say,
"From the word Go, you data will be that slow, it's quicker to walk"
Use iPhone XS Max dual sim, SE, Honor 10, IPad Pro 11, Apple Watch 4 LTE, 100+ Mpbs Barrier and a Record Player.

Still a very poor offer from O2 in Europe.
Sky Unlimited Broadband - Windows 10 - Nexus 4 Android 5.1.1

And why just limit it to Europe? The world is a much smaller place these days and we in the UK are a multicultural society. Literally thousands of O2 customers travel much broader than Europe and the costs here are £1.50 per minute with a minimum charge of £1.50. No per second billing, rounded up to the nearest minute.

Hi @Anonymous Well all I can say is it must be very different over Wifi. Like you, I spend about 15 weeks a year in Spain and find using Wifi no different to using it in the UK. On the very rare occasions I use mobile data I have no problems. I use the Movistar network and avoid Vodafone ES and Orange ES as they are useless.
Incidentally for info I travel to the Costa Del Sol region

Hi @Cleoriff! I travel to Barcelona. I'm normally on Movistar, and usually in the morning, on the way to the office, I stop for a coffee and to read my feeds. And this is when its painful - some mornings, I can't even load some simple feeds. I have an iPhone 6 Plus and its set up to not update apps or anything over mobile network (only over wifi). So I tend to believe the restrictions apply from 0 MB instead of 100 MB, as O2 is saying.
