Here are just a few things to bear in mind when you’re travelling abroad
Overseas network charges
You’ll need an internet connection to use our mobile app. It's best to check with your mobile carrier what they charge for roaming data usage as this can get quite expensive. We recommend that you connect to a wi-fi to use the app.
