Sally Cowdry, Marketing & Consumer Director for O2 in the UK, said “We know people want to able to relax and enjoy their holidays without worrying about complicated phone charges. With simple charges and a generous 25MB data bundle, O2 Travel provides a great way for our customers to keep in touch and share their holiday moments with family and friends without having to worry about the costs.”
The company says mobile internet usage on holiday is growing at more than 100% a year, with 60% of customers who use the mobile internet in the UK now also using it when abroad.
