Virgin launches ‘Travel Passes’


Virgin Media has launched a range of ‘Travel Passes’ aimed at customers looking to curb unexpected charges when using mobile internet or mobile broadband within the EU.

Travel Passes for mobile internet consist of a one hour pass for £4 or a 24-hour pass for £6.

Passes for mobile broadband consist of one day (£10 for 10MB), three days (£15 for 15MB), seven days (£30 for 30MB) or 30 days (£60 for 60MB).

To activate a pass, customers can text BUY + pass name (e.g. 1HR or 3DAY) to 23456.

Virgin Media director of mobile Jonathan Kini said: “Virgin Media customers never have to worry about accessing the internet while they’re abroad.
“Whether it’s searching for the best pizzeria in Rome on your mobile or uploading photos onto Facebook with a laptop and mobile broadband, customers now have control over what they spend on holiday.”
