No more roaming in the EU: always close… from Svalbard to Gavdos
Are you one of those people who never use their smartphone abroad because of the bill afterwards? Then we have very good news, because as of 12 June the roaming charges within the European Union disappear, and you phone, surf and sms at the same price as in Belgium.

Your existing national Proximus rate plan! As of 12 June, it’s all you need when you want to phone or surf while travelling within the EU. There’s more: as of then you can work at no extra cost in Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway too.

So quickly checking your e-mails, sending a status update, or letting your colleagues know that you’re doing very well over there on a business trip or vacation… you can do that with your existing subscription from now on. And if you do exceed your calling or surfing credit, it’s at the same price as in Belgium.

Do you want to be certain that you have enough minutes and gigabytes? Check here to see which Bizz Mobile suits you perfectly.

And what if you go outside the EU?

If you travel a bit farther you should take care, because the roaming costs still exist for phoning and surfing outside the EU. You'll find all the info on rates for phoning and surfing abroad outside the EU on the Proximus website.

But there too we have more economical solutions, like our Daily Travel Passport.

With this you get a bundle of 80 MB of mobile internet, 20 texts and 20 calling minutes. And all that for only €4.13 per usage day (excl. VAT) for 35 "top destinations" like Canada and Turkey.

If you’re away a bit longer of more often, you’ll find that one of our other bundles suits you perfectly. You can discover all our options here.

Keeping an eye on your roaming charges?

It is still a good idea of course to keep an eye on your consumption. And you can easily do that by installing our MyProximus app on your smartphone. With this you get a complete overview of your current outstanding bill at any time. This way you keep track of the costs for both your private use and that of your company. Handy for knowing when you should call a halt to your consumption or that of your travelling employees.

In addition, we still send you a text when you exceed certain limits. And if your mobile internet abroad exceeds the threshold of €49.59 excl. VAT, your data are still automatically blocked as prescribed by EU guidelines.

Which countries are included?

The EU’s new roaming policy is valid in all 28 EU member states + Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.
So from 12th June you can surf, call and text without worry from Svalbard (NO) to Gavdos (GR) and from Cabo da Roca (PT) to Virmajärvi (FI).
