I've looked through the forum and haven't come across an answer to the questions of how tethering charges work when roaming. If I'm in Europe, where the £2 per 25MB per day charge applies, what happens if I enable personal hotspot and download the 25MB of data on my laptop/iPad? Am I charged £2? Am I charged £5? Am I charged £7? Does anyone have a definitive answer as to how this charging works?
Thanks for any info!

It avoids any unknown charges and is a much better idea.

I appreciate that the two of you have taken the time to reply and the suggestion to use a PAYG sim or use wifi is good advice, but I'd still like to know what I'll be charged if I do enable tethering when abroad. It isn't something I'd do very often but it's good to have the option available ..... and to know the cost!

I am also interested to know, if you coming with friends personal hotspot would be very useful as for 2 pounds in europe you can get 25Mb, then one person is sharing connection others can use it but the question is if vodafone will charge extra 5 for enabling hotspot.

Mmmmm, looks like someone's just going to have to try it and see. I'm not going to be away for a couple of months but I'll give it a go. In the meantime if anyone else wants to try it and report back it would, I'm sure, be appreciated by many.
Absolutely unbelievable that after all this time none of the mods have been able to obtain a definitive answer.

Thanks for your patience with this one.
I've checked and your tethering data will be charged at the same rate as 'normal' data whilst you are abroad. More information can be found at our Roaming Pages.
