All hardy globe-trotters share a few terrifying tech travel tales, whether it’s the horror of two-pin plug adaptors or dreaded surcharge fees amassing on your phone when you thought it had roaming switched off.

If this is the EU’s last ditch attempt to avert the break-up of the union, we can’t help thinking this might actually do it!
