Virgin Media have launched a range of Travel Passes for those who want to use the Internet abroad.
The Virgin Media Travel Passes are designed to offer mobile Internet and mobile broadband access for users to get online anywhere in the EU.
The new Travel Passes will offer an Internet connection for users while away abroad but take out the risk of running up huge bills and getting a “Bill Shock”.
“Bill Shock” is the term used for unexpectedly large bills caused by using mobile Internet and mobile broadband. Only earlier today we reported a story of a student who ran up a £8,000 mobile broadband bill in just over a month while away in France.
The Virgin Media Travel Passes come as either a Mobile Internet pass to a Mobile Broadband Pass.
The Mobile Internet EU Travel Passes on offer are available are either a one hour pass that costs £4 or a 24 hour pass for £6.
To activate the EU Mobile Internet Travel Pass users simply need to text BUY + pass name (e.g. 24HR or 1HR) to the short code: 23456
The Mobile Broadband EU Travel Passes come with 4 different options.
A one day costing £10 for 10Mb, 3 days costing £15 for 15Mb, 7 days costing £30 for 30Mb or the option of a 30 day travel pass costing £60 for 60Mb.
To activate a Mobile Broadband Travel Pass users simply need to text BUY + pass name (e.g. 1DAY or 3DAY) to short code 23456
