Before you or anyone on your team goes abroad, please make sure to call your account manager on 03456 200 200 to check you have the correct bolt-on in place. Once you have the correct bolt-on in place, managing your data abroad will be a lot easier. We've also got 3 tips on how to disable data hungry activities that go on in the background without you knowing.

1. Turn off auto-app updates

On most smartphones, apps can update in the background without your knowledge. This is handy when your apps are up to date whenever you check them, but this background activity could be eating into your data allowance without you realising, so it is best to disable.

2. Switch off email and app push notification

Does your phone alert you instantly when you have new mail? Do you get a notification when there's breaking news on BBC News? That all requires data usage. Switching off email and app push notifications will help you reserve the data for the tasks that you actually need it for.

3. Disable video auto-play

When you've been scrolling through your news feed in the Facebook app, you might've noticed videos auto-playing. It looks great, but auto-play can be problematic if you only have a small data inclusion or you're worried about your usage.

Switching off auto-play is a pretty effective way to cut back on your data usage, and might even save a bit of battery power as well.

To do this - open the facebook app > tap your phone's menu button > tap settings > scroll down to video auto-play and choose an option

We hope you find these tips to keep data usage under control when roaming useful.
