Tesco Mobile has revealed it's scrapping roaming charges for its customers this summer, with a new service called Home From Home.

The supermarket network will allow customers to use their allowance of calls, texts and data at no extra cost from May 23rd to September 3rd.

The offer applies in 31 countries across Europe. That compares with 11 European destinations covered by Three’s Feel At Home offer.

Tesco has made the move as the European Union gears up to lower roaming charges on April 30th, before they are completely scrapped in June 2017.

Calls made outside customers’ allowance to EU numbers will cost 4p a minute, with texts priced 1p.

Home From Home will work automatically for Tesco Mobile users and there is no need to activate the service.

Tesco has not said whether the scheme will stay in place beyond September if it proves to be a success.

Home From Home will work in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain including the Canary Islands, Sweden, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
