Vodafone Global Roaming
for Pay monthly customers

From Portugal to Panama, the world is yours to explore with Vodafone Global Roaming. Included in all new and existing Pay monthly plans (excluding Basics plans), it lets you take your home plan of data, texts and minutes to 152 destinations worldwide – that’s more than any other UK network. So you can use your phone as you would at home, without the hassle of any unexpected charges on your bill.

How to roam with Vodafone:

Roam-free

You can Roam-free on any plan (excluding Vodafone Basics), meaning you can use your home plan in our 48 Roam-free destinations [PDF: 668KB] with no extra charge. Send emails from Spain, check Facebook in France or call home from Croatia, it won’t cost a penny extra.

Roam-further

Travelling further afield? Pay just £6 a day to use your home plan of data, minutes and texts in our 104 Roam-further destinations [PDF: 810KB] – and you’ll be charged only on the days you use your phone. What’s more, receiving calls and texts is free. So, if you only take calls or read texts on any given day, you won’t incur the £6 charge.

Global Roaming Plus

Included with all Red Entertainment plans sold with a phone from 15 August 2018, or a Red Entertainment SIM only plan after 4 September 2018, Global Roaming Plus lets you enjoy roaming in all our Roam-free destinations, and 29 of our most popular Roam-further destinations [PDF: 1.86MB], with no daily fee. That’s 77 destinations included – more than any other UK network. Use your home plan in countries like the USA, Australia, Canada and Mexico at no extra charge. Perfect for long-haul travellers.

The UK’s best network for roaming – here’s why


More roaming – less hassle

Roam free in more destinations than any other UK network.
Choose a plan with Global Roaming plus and pay no additional roaming charges in 77 destinations, including the USA and Canada – more than any other UK network.

 
Share when you’re there, with all your UK data

Unlike other networks, we don’t restrict your roaming data with a set daily or monthly limit. The only time you'll be capped is when you’ve used all the data you’ve paid for – unless you tell us otherwise.

Full-speed roaming –
with no restrictions

Have you heard of ‘throttling’? It’s where networks slow your data speed to restrict your usage. Unlike other networks, we never ‘throttle’ – at home, or abroad – so you’ll always enjoy full-speed roaming.
On 4G where available.

 
Make calls abroad,
worry free

Unlike other operators, we’ll let you make calls to local mobiles and landlines in our 48 Roam-free destinations with no additional charge – and in our 104 Roam-further destinations, they’re part of the £6 daily charge. So you can book a restaurant or call a taxi, worry free. And of course, calls back to the UK are included, too.

Brag from the beach on unbeatable 4G abroad

Did you know only one other UK network lets you use 4G when you’re roaming?
EE offers 4G in 76 destinations, and that’s pretty good. But we let you use 4G in 137 destinations (and counting). That’s over 60 more than the competition.
