Opera Software: 5 Money Saving Tips for Your Summer Trip

There is always one dark cloud looming above your much anticipated summer trip – mobile data charges. There was a story making the rounds online about an unfortunate German mobile customer who managed to rack up an impressive €40.000 bill during his travels. The good news is that the European Commission has imposed a data cap to prevent such unfortunate events from happening again.

The European Commission has imposed a data-spending cap of €50 to “ease the minds of travelers using their phones’ data capabilities while traveling” explained Opera Software. The data-spending limit will be enforced within the EU starting with the 1st of July. If the traveler wants to, he can increase or decrease the €50 limit.


“Putting a cap on data roaming does not have to be the end of web surfing while traveling,” said Opera Software. There are a few money saving tips that you must take into consideration before abandoning web surfing altogether:

5. Consider purchasing a local pay-as-you-go card if you have to stay in one location for a longer period of time.
4. Do no download large files. As a rule of thumb you should avoid audio, video and other large file downloads.
3. To maximize cost reduction, it is a good idea to turn pictures off on your mobile browser. It is also a good idea to reduce the quality of the image, if you don’t want to turn them off altogether.
2. Try to find free WiFi hotspots. The upside is that you can surf the web free of charge; the downside is that you have to be aware of security issues.
1. Use Opera Mini.

“The Opera Mini mobile-phone browser (m.opera.com), available for free on practically any mobile phone, reduces the amount of data necessary to display a full webpage on your mobile phone. With this compression, the user gets more pages served within the limit than other uncompressed mobile browsers,” explained Opera Software.
