New Orange roaming initiatives help customers travelling abroad

2nd August 2012 Print

Orange has announced two new additions to its existing portfolio of roaming initiatives, designed to offer customers an increased level of control over their usage and spend when using their handset abroad.
Orange is introducing ‘Travel Angel’, a free smartphone app downloadable from the Android and BlackBerry app stores and available soon on Apple. The app will help customers to track their mobile phone usage abroad. It automatically detects the country or region a customer is in, and if a customer does not already have a roaming bundle, it will recommend the most relevant for the amount of data, calls or texts they want to use in that country. They can buy it immediately if they want to. The app also helps customers to track in real time the data and services they use so they can monitor their spend and usage. It also lets customers set notification alerts for how much data they have left in their bundle, so they don’t overspend.
Orange also developed a new weekly combined bundle earlier this month for customers travelling in the EU. The bundle offers a simple 3-in-1 solution incorporating calls, text and data into one affordable and easy to understand package. The seven day bundle will be available for just £15 until the 5th August, then £20 thereafter, and provides customers travelling within the EU with 50 minutes, 30MB and 100 texts.
The ‘Travel Angel’ app and new combined bundle compliment Orange’s existing roaming portfolio – which includes some of the most competitive roaming bundles on the market.
Orange also provides a number of other inititiaves to help customers control their usage when they are abroad. For further information about Orange’s roaming bundles and initiatives, visit
