Speaking on his ITV programme The Martin Lewis Money Show: Live, the financial expert said he had been in touch with “10 main mobile networks” who are planning to continue abiding by this regulation.
“So ‘roam like at home’ was an EU law that you had to be charged the same in the European Union for calling Britain as you would be in Britain,” he explained.
“That is now gone, that’s the bad news.
Furthermore, the rule will only apply to people who are holidaying in an EU country.
“If you are going outside of the European Union then it can be expensive.”
Martin did not specify which providers he had been in touch with, but Britons are encouraged to contact their provider to find out the terms and conditions of their contract or plan.
The previous European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will no longer be renewed for Britons, and instead, they will be given a Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC).
Much like the EHIC, the GHIC allows Britons to access the same health care as the citizens of the country they are visiting.
He advised Britons to make sure their EHIC is in date as they are currently being used interchangeably with the new GHIC until they expire.
People can also apply for new cards if their card is out of date, and will be issued with a new GHIC.
However, he warned Britons not to get caught out by scams.
“These cards are always free,” he said.
“If you pay, if someone is trying to charge you do not pay ever for these cards.”
