FYI from Vodafone.

They have changed their Data roaming countries and Turkey is now excluded.

From 6th May 2020, you can use your UK allowance of minutes, texts and data in Turkey. However this will cost an additional £6 per day but only on the days you use your phone.

If you’d like to use your phone in Turkey with no extra daily costs, choose our Unlimited Max plan. Unlimited Max gives you inclusive roaming in 81 destinations worldwide, including Turkey.

Just received that text as well. £6 a day if you make a call, text or use the data? Not be staying with them then.

Didn’t they do this a while back but then reversed their decision due to consumer backlash?

Don’t live in UK so no point in me subscribing. Oh well, bit of a pain, but in the grand scheme if things...

That would be a game changer for me if it’s actually true

They tried this about two years ago and relented (thank god)

But I don't see me being in Turkey or the TRNC before the autumn not saying what year

And with Turkish Airlines not taking over 65's

Ryanair grounding all flights until June from March 24

Three vodafones in our house; no messages/texts received as yet - checked here (Vodafone abroad web page) and cannot see anything...
However, when "Pay monthly" is selected -

"Turkey is a Roam-free destination

There’s no extra charge to use your UK allowance of data, minutes and texts in any of our Roam-free destinations [PDF: 668KB]. And you won’t be charged to receive calls or texts.

If you go over your inclusive allowance, you'll pay the same rates as you would in the UK
Get 4G speeds and 25GB of inclusive roaming data a month, on all our Unlimited plans.
"

When "Pay as you go" is selected -

"Turkey is in our Europe Zone

There's no additional charge to use your data, minutes or texts in any of the 48 destinations in our Pay as you go Europe Zone [PDF: 677KB]. If you have a Big Value Bundle you can use your inclusive data, minutes and texts at no additional charge. Extras and Freebies can also be used in our Europe Zone. If you don't have a Big Value Bundle, Freebie or Extra you'll simply pay the same for data, calls and texts as you do in the UK

Other benefits while in a Europe Zone destination:

You can use your UK allowance or UK rates to call or text standard landlines and mobiles in other Europe Zone destinations as well as the UK
If you go over your inclusive allowance, you'll pay the same rates as you would in the UK
Get 4G speeds and 25GB of inclusive roaming data a month, on all our Unlimited plans.
"

Both of the above appear whether calling from Turkey to UK or from Turkey to Turkey is selected... We're on PAYG, have to wait and see if we get a text (and whether their website changes)...

Three contracts with them also for years. If they don't change their mind I will be dropping them.
