From 14th June giffgaff goodybags can be used across Europe at the same rate as UK.
Turkey dont count
Turkey is not part of EU so this does not apply there. i use Bimcell. around £8 to purchase sim card then choose monthly payg package depending on what you want- data, calls, texts etc.
I was also wondering the same so looked into vodafone pay as you go apparently you can use the data in turkey.

So if you buy one of these pay as you go packages you can use the allowance in turkey
Thank you I would prefer to have something over here that I can take so will look into Vodafone.

You do know Turkey isn't in Europe? Well 3% of it is. 97% is in Asia. It's culturally not European either.

​Funny that, as it's known for being in 2 continents regardless of what percentage.
I know the Vodafone website says turkey is not part of the worldtravller so you assume you are not able to take your contract over but my brother went and received a text that's he's able to use his mins, text and data freely without any charge. (think it was 4gb for data ). Although he is on 20gb plan for uk. so if you are with Vodafone (in a contract with them ) you are allowed to use your roaming .

Was he near the border ? Maybe pinged off a EU inclusive base station and received the text ?
Turkey now longer part of the Vodafone inclusive roaming allowance from 10/05/2018:

I was Googling and came across this ... Vodafone PAYG includes Turkey (they back-tracked on taking it out of the Europe Zone) and for £10 you get 3gb at the moment. Seems the best deal.

If you are a monthly customer you can also use your whole package in Turkey (as I have done in the past), but not on a Basic SIM only contract. I am moving over the to Basic package and it is £3 cheaper a month and will then order a PAYG sim for when I away.
