Roam like at Home, in the Balearics?

Can anyone clarify whether the new 'Roam like at Home' covers the Balearic islands (Majorca, Minorca etc). The Plusnet site says that Spain is covered, but then also mentions the Canary Isles, whereas the Balearics aren't mentioned separately, despite both sets of islands being part of Spain.

Cheers

I think the Canary Isles are mentioned separately purely because of the distance from the Spanish mainland.

Hi @andy6

The Balearic Islands are included in our Roam Like at Home areas, but you would need to make sure you're on a plan that includes Roam Like at Home. If you're unsure on this feel free to drop me a Private Message and I can check this for you. Smiley

Some providers used to charge as outside-EU for canaries, others treated it as spain.

 

I suspect they were told to specifically state it was included.

Not uncommon for whatever reason. My travel insurance was a little more expensive because I chose "Spain including Canaries" rather than just "Spain" which didn't include them.
