Loss of free minutes and changes to roaming on Drei mobile contracts.

We were recently tipped off in our Facebook groups that existing contracts with free minutes to the UK with Drei stand to lose these free minutes from August 2022.

We therefore contacted Drei (Austria), who confirmed that free minutes to the UK will no longer apply on many existing contract tariffs from 15 August 2022.

Drei did advise that the “Ideal” range of tariffs from M Plus upwards (i.e. also Ideal L, Ideal XL and Ideal Unlimited – in both Smartphone and SIM only versions) will include free minutes to the UK from then on, although it should be noted that the included monthly free minutes are relatively low.

As general advice, check directly with Drei about how your current tariff stands to be affected.

This article is produced in good faith to advise people with contracts on Drei that the included free minutes and roaming data in the UK is due to change, and to advise of the existence of tariffs that will offer some free minutes and roaming data in the UK. It does not constitute a recommendation and only serves the purpose to inform potentially affected customers.
