We have no current plans to re-introduce roaming charges in EU countries following the UK’s departure from the European Union.

In line with EU Roaming Regulations, customers’ use of their allowance while in our Europe Zone (excluding the UK), Roam-free or Roam-further destinations is intended for temporary, periodic travel such as holidays and short breaks.

Where a customer’s usage abroad is greater than at home over a four month period, we will message them to give them 14 days to clarify their usage, after which a regulated surcharge of 3.3p per minute for voice calls, 1p per SMS and £3.13 per GB of data will be applied to further usage. The new charges will come into effect on 18 January, 2021. Customers will be able to continue to receive calls and texts at no extra cost.

If a customer finds themselves stranded abroad due to COVID-related travel restrictions, we will be sensitive to those situations and take each case on an individual basis. Vodafone offers inclusive roaming, at no extra cost, in 51 destinations – more than any other UK network. Customers on Unlimited Max plans will benefit from an additional 30 destinations worldwide.

You can use your data allowance abroad, just to note there is a 25GB roaming fair use policy per billing month.

We will notify you as you approach this threshold and again once reached. If you reach this threshold, you will then be charged £3.13 per 1GB until your monthly allowance renews.

All our plans have a monthly 25GB roaming fair usage policy. This means you can only use up to 25GB of data a month at no extra cost while travelling in our inclusive roaming destinations.

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.
