Telephoning abroad: change in roaming thanks to new EU

How to change roaming settings to International on an iD sim card
A few years ago, a call from abroad was really expensive. Since 2017, roaming fees are history and the EU wants to maintain.

Luxembourg (DPA) – Expensive charges for a call from abroad are still a thing of the past. The EU has extended the decision for another ten years. Calls, SMS messages and internet usage can make mobile customers in other EU countries without additional costs.

Telephoning abroad: EU extends free roaming in EU countries

This is made possible with an extension of the so-called roaming for which the EU countries have approved the path as they reported on Monday. The EU Parliament and the individual governments had agreed on the design of free roaming. After the deputies had already agreed, the official approval of the EU states was missing, so that the regulation becomes effective.

It enters into force on 1 July and releases the existing specifications. The roaming fees have been omitted since June 15, 2017 in the 27 EU States as well as in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The agreement also provides for changes to existing rules. Thus, consumers abroad should always be available to the same quality of the services abroad whenever possible (more digital at years ago).

Telephoning abroad: roaming remains free – “success stories for consumers”

Ursula Pachl from the European Consumer Association BEUC said that one of the largest success stories for consumers in the EU with this expansion and improvement continues. Criticism, she expressed the fact that news and telephone calls between EU countries can still lead to high fees if they do not fall under the roaming scheme. This can be the case, for example, if you call a connection in another EU country with a mobile phone.

Nevertheless, consumers should be careful when using their smartph1. In order to avoid cost traps, you must pay attention to specific details.

Specifically, the abolition of the two payment functions Money Card and Giro go, which were for years on the offer of the savings bank. Both functions belonged to the normal equipment of the Red Sparkasse Card. Already since July 1, 2020, no new cards are published with these functions more.

The Sparkasse itself informs on your website that existing savings bank cards with the mentioned functions in the coming years should be gradually replaced by new cards. By the end of 2024, the cards with cash card and Giro go function should be completely disappeared from the market. First of last year, another innovation had been announced with giro cards.

Money card and Giro go : Simple prepaid payment functions at the Sparkasse

As the reasons for the abolition of long-term services, the savings bank call changed market conditions. Both the payment function with the cash card and Giro go have been less used by customers in recent years. Meanwhile, the contactless payment with the savings bank card, paying by credit card or smartphone are much more popular.

Paying with the money card / giro go is only possible by prior charging by credit (prepaid). The function can be paid to the Giro card for the electronic wallet, with the smaller purchases of up to 25 euros quickly and without entering a PIN or signature of the receipt (more news about digital at bank).

What happens to the prepaid cards with existing credit?

With future savings bank cards, this feature will no longer be possible. What concretely means that no credit can be booked more on the map. The prepaid possibility is completely eliminated.

Customers who are currently still saving bank cards with cash card or Giro go feature can pay with it until the end of the validity of your cards. Maximum but only until December 31, 2024. Existing credit remains until then. In addition, however, the Sparkasse Card must be unloaded by 31 March 2025 at the latest.

No prepaid function More at the Sparkasse: Which alternatives have customers?

A new prepaid payment function no longer offers the savings bank after the abolition of both services. However, the company points out that the normal payment with the Sparkasse Card (debit from the account) is a fast and secure alternative to the cash card and Giro go.

Paying with the smartphone is also, especially in Corona times, another and above all hygienic method to pay shopping quickly and contactless. Until a purchase value of 50 euros, no PIN entry is necessary according to the savings bank.

By the way: If you prefer paying cash instead of card, you will increasingly get problems. Because in Germany there are always fewer ATMs. The reason for this is the digitization.
