Three UK has added two new countries to its Feel at Home roaming initiative.

From April, consumers travelling to Spain and New Zealand will be able to use their phone to browse the internet, call and text at no extra cost.

The mobile operator now offers the service to 18 countries around the world, after adding five other destinations last June.

Three UK Chief Executive David Dyson commented: “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. Adding France last year and Spain in 2015 means the two most popular destinations with British holiday makers will be covered.”

According to the Dyson, 49 percent of Three UK customers' overseas trips are to Feel At Home destinations.

With the addition of Spain and New Zealand, the CEO said he expects that figure to rise to about 65 percent.

Dyson added: “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.”

The European Union is aiming to ban roaming charges entirely by the end of this year.​

Last month, Three UK announced it had 3.1 million customers using 4G LTE.
