Three Feel at Home now available in Spain and New Zealand

Three has extended its international traveller service, which is now available in 18 countries around the world

Three has announced its Feel at Home traveller service is arriving in Spain and New Zealand, meaning you'll be able to use your bundled data, minutes and texts in those countries with no extra charge from April.

The new locations will come into effect as UK holidaymakers flock to the favoured European destination for their summer holidays, at least going some way towards lightening the burden of holiday costs.13 million holidaymakers are expected to travel to Spain this year, although only a fraction of these will probably be making use of the service.

The service is already available in France, Switzerland, Israel, Finland, Norway, the USA, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Macau, Australia, Italy, Austria, Hong Kong, Sweden, Denmark and the Republic of Ireland.

Dave Dyson, Three's CEO said: "Feel at Home is unique to Three and offers freedom from unfair roaming charges. It is already hugely popular with more than a million of our customers enjoying its benefits since launch."

"However, my ambition continues to be to eliminate excessive roaming charges globally and we're working hard to open up even more opportunities for our customers to stay connected and enjoy their phones whilst they're abroad."

Tethering your phone to your computer or any other Wi-Fi enabled device is not included in the plan, although other data included in your plan is.

As part of the launch, Three has hooked up with travel site Expedia to offer 12 per cent off a pre-paid hotel booking made via the Expedia app until April 6.

The news comes eight months before the EU's new regulations on roaming charges come into effect by 2016.
