Using Data Passport in the UK.

Data Passport can be used within the UK. If you’d like to purchase a Data Passport, just go to on your phone’s browser and follow the instructions.

Using Data Passport abroad.

If you’re already in an eligible destination and you’d like to purchase a Data Passport, you can do so just like you would in the UK, by visiting on your phone’s browser and following the instructions.

Alternatively, when you arrive in an eligible destination, we’ll text you a link which you can follow to buy the Data Passport. To activate it, follow these instructions:

  1. Turn off your push notifications (they’re the things that tell you stuff like when you’ve got an email, when it’s your turn in a game or when someone’s tagged a pic of you). This is to avoid potential roaming charges while you’re setting up the Data Passport. The set-up differs from phone to phone, so make sure you’ve worked out how to do it before you go away.
  2. Make sure data roaming is enabled.
  3. Click on the link in the text we send you when you arrive in any of the 89 worldwide destinations where you can choose to buy this pass. The Data Passport allows you to use your device as a Personal Hotspot, stream video or audio at unrestricted speeds, and more in 89 worldwide destinations. To find out more about the Data Passport, check out About the Data Passport.
  4. Follow the simple steps to buy the Data Passport and then you can tweet, upload, browse, email, tether, and stream audio and video at no extra charge, until midnight that day (UK time).

If you’re having trouble buying the Data Passport, you can contact us and we’ll be happy to help. If calling from abroad, the call will be charged at our standard roaming rates unless you’re calling from one of our Go Roam destinations in which case it will come out of your standard allowance.

What if I choose not to get a Data Passport?
