FAQs

We're changing the number of Vodafone Pay monthly plans that include roaming in our European Zone, for our personal and business customers.

If you're on a Pay monthly plan that started before 11 August 2021, there will be no change to your plan, or to the way you roam, while you stay on that plan.

If you've got a holiday this year, don't worry, the new roaming charges don't start until 6 January 2022.

Find more information about the cost of using your device abroad at vodafone.co.uk/roamingupdate22.

As the UK is no longer in the European Union we are no longer protected from networks in other countries increasing their prices. And if we kept inclusive roaming in all of our plans, many customers would be paying for something they won't use.

By including European roaming in some of our plans and creating a day rate that's good value for money, we can give you a choice. You can choose a plan that includes roaming or choose to pay for it as and when it's needed.

See Terms and Conditions

It depends on your Vodafone plan, when it started, and where you'll be roaming. There will be no changes to roaming for existing customers who joined Vodafone before 11 August 2021.We have outlined the changes to our plans below, which will affect customers who join Vodafone or upgrade on or after 11 August 2021. We won't apply these new charges until January 2022.

Unlimited data Xtra Airtime Plan with 4 Xtra benefits:

  • You can use your UK allowance in 83 worldwide destinations (Zones B/C) at no extra cost, and in further 75 worldwide destinations (Zone D) for £6 a day.

Limited data Xtra Airtime Plan with 4 Xtra benefits:

  • You can use your UK allowance in our Europe Zone (Zones A/B) at no extra cost, and in a further 107 worldwide destinations (see Zones C/D) for £6 a day.

Any other Vodafone Pay monthly plan:

  • Roaming in Zone A is included in your plan. Roaming in Zone B will cost £2 a day, but you can roam for just £1 a day when you add an 8-day or 15-day Roaming Pass to your plan.
  • You can roam in an additional 107 worldwide destinations in Zone C and D using your home plan for £6 a day.

From 11 August 2021 onwards, if you take out or upgrade/migrate to a new Pay monthly plan without inclusive European roaming, there will be a daily charge for roaming in our European Roaming Zone (Zones A/B). Roaming charges start on 6 January 2022, from £1 per day.

Any Vodafone pay as you go plans:

If you have a Pay as you go plan, there will be no changes to the way you roam, so you won't need to pay any additional charges. Find out what your current roaming charges are Find out more about our roaming destinations

Please note: a 25GB roaming fair use policy applies to monthly data usage

Use of our services while in Zone A, Zone B (excluding the UK) and Zone C (for customers using their inclusive roaming that is included in their monthly charge) is intended for temporary, periodic travel such as holidays and short breaks.

We will monitor and check your roaming use. If, during any 4 month period, you roam in Zone A, B or C for 62 days or more AND your corresponding roaming usage exceeds your usage within the UK, you may incur additional roaming charges. We will send you notification two weeks prior to charging you any additional roaming charges, to allow you time to adjust your usage accordingly.

These additional roaming charges will be:
£0.033 per minute for calls
£0.01p per SMS
£3.13 per 1GB of data

You will still be able to receive calls and texts from friends and relatives at no extra cost

Read more about our acceptable use policy.

If you exceed your UK data allowance when you're abroad, you will be charged as you would be in the UK. The charges will last until your next billing date or until you return to the UK, whichever comes first.

If your UK allowance is greater than 25GB, then a fair usage policy of 25GB applies i.e. once you have exceeded 25GB data use, then you will be charged £3.13 per GB used. The charges will last until your next billing date or until you return to the UK, whichever comes first.

All our pay monthly plans are subject to a 25GB roaming fair use policy. This means that if your UK allowance is greater than 25GB, you can use up to 25GB data a month while roaming.

If your UK data allowance is less than 25GB, you can use your UK data allowance when abroad, but if you exceed it you'll be charged as you would be in the UK.

From the 26 July 2019, if you’re on a 5G-ready plan and have a 5G device, you can also use 5G in Spain, Germany and Italy where it’s available. In addition, you can also benefit from Vodafone Unlimited on 4G in 81 destinations worldwide – the largest roaming footprint of any UK provider.
