Orange has launched a new roaming bundle for its contract, dongle and small business customers that provides 30MB of data usage within the EU for £3 per day.

The company notes that if the customer does not use the bundle on a particular day, they will not be billed for it, meaning that it can be bought in advance of travelling and used when necessary. The bundle is timed to start from midnight local time and resets each day.

However, if a customer uses with the bundle uses more than the 30MB any extra will be charged at £3.07 per MB, Orange said on Friday.

The new 30MB daily option adds to the company's other EU data add-ons — valid for 30 days — that provide 30MB for £15, 150MB for £50 or 500MB for £150.
