iPad and tablet, Mobile Wi-Fi, data dongle and data SIM bundles from July 2015

Bundle charges

There are bound to be times when your data allowance doesn't last. So we think it's a good idea to know in advance how much you'll have to pay if you want more. The charges shown on this page will apply once you exceed your data allowance or your allowance doesn't include the services listed in the UK or abroad.

Prices include VAT unless otherwise stated. See our website for more information about our services and current bundles.

Data usage

How do you know how much of your data allowance you've used? You can monitor your data usage by checking the dashboard (on your computer) or by logging into My Vodafone

When you're in the UK or travelling, we'll send you notifications when you're getting close to paying additional charges. For more information on the messages we'll send you and how to opt out, read our notification information

You may only use your SIM card in, or connect it to, modems, dongles, iPad, tablets and/or laptops. You may not use your SIM card in a phone or in any other mobile equipment which is not set out above. If you do, we'll ask you to stop and in persistent cases, we’ll suspend your service, restrict your use or speed, or charge you for unauthorised use.

Data charges in the UK

Each bundle comes with an individual data allowance (unless you’re on Red+ where it’s shared). If your allowance runs out and you want to use data, then you'll be charged at the rates described on this page.

Data usage will be counted even if our content control prevents you from looking at content.

UK data charge if you’ve used up your allowance
£6.50 for every 250MB (whether used whole or in part)

Data charges abroad

We've divided the world into zones which carry different charges. As zones and charges change from time to time, check our travelling abroad page before you leave.

Our charges are based on a calendar day and calculated in Greenwich Meantime (GMT). Even when you're abroad, they'll be based on GMT rather than the local time in the country you're in.

When you travel abroad data usage is rounded to the nearest MB for each day you use the service.

Text messaging in the UK and abroad


Message type Cost
Standard UK text message (up to 160 characters) 18p a text
Text message worldwide (up to 160 characters).
This is the charge for sending a standard text from
the UK to another country.

Text message costs will be shown on your bill as an additional charge.

Please note: if we're charged an admin fee from an international network operator for you to receive a text, we'll pass this charge on to you.


If you're unable to access certain websites, this may be because you have a content control bar on your account. To remove this, go to My Vodafone

Reference to the UK excludes the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

All our services must only be used for your personal and non-commercial use. Use of the services is subject to this guide and the Pay monthly Airtime Conditions
