Vodafone international roaming FAQ

Last updated:

Vodafone's roaming policy depends on whether you sign up for one of its Basics, Essentials, Red Extra or Red Entertainment plans.

Here, we'll outline what you get with each type of plan and in which countries you'll be able to use your monthly allowance of calls, texts and data for no extra cost.

If your Vodafone Pay monthly plan started before 11 August 2021, there’s no change to the way you roam as long as you stay on your current mobile plan. You won’t need to pay any additional charges for roaming.

If you joined Vodafone, upgraded or changed your plan on or after 11 August 2021, there will be a daily charge for using your phone in our European roaming zones, provided your plan doesn't include roaming in Europe. These charges started on 31 January 2022 for personal and small business customers.

For other business customers, changes came into effect in November 2021, but charges started on 31 January 2022.

European roaming charges don’t apply to Xtra Airtime Plans with 4 Xtra benefits.

The new charges are as follows:

Are there any other benefits of roaming on Vodafone?

Vodafone will allow you to access 4G in 137 destinations worldwide, far more than any other network.

By comparison, EE offers 4G in 76 locations, while Three, iD Mobile and O2 currently don’t offer any international 4G access.

What's Vodafone's fair usage policy?

Handily, Vodafone doesn't impose any data caps on roaming. So, you'll be able to use your full monthly allowance while you're in any of the countries listed above for no extra cost.

However, roaming with Vodafone is only free for the first 30 consecutive days of use. Once you exceed that, your roaming privileges will be suspended and you'll have to pay extra to use your monthly allowances.
