Roam at no extra cost in 83 worldwide destinations on selected Unlimited data Xtra Plans
How does roaming with Vodafone work?
For our Pay monthly customers we've split the world into Zones A, B, C and D. For our Pay as you go customers, we've split the world into Zones A, B and 'Around the World'. We also have our 'Rest of the World' destinations, which are for both our Pay monthly and Pay as you go customers.
Roaming in Zone A is included in all plans. Roaming outside of Zone A will depend on where you're travelling to and what plan you're on. Find out more information below.
For our Rest of the World destinations, you'll pay by the megabyte for data, minutes or texts. Type your destinations into our Charge Checker to find out what it'll cost for your specific destination.

We've now changed the number of Vodafone Pay monthly plans that include roaming in our Europe Zone, for our personal and business customers.
If you're on a Pay monthly plan that started before 11 August 2021, there is no change to the way you roam as long as you stay on your current mobile plan. To find out more, visit www.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.
If you're on a Pay monthly plan that started before 11 August 2021, there is no change to the way you roam as long as you stay on your current mobile plan.

You can only roam in Zone B if you purchase one of our Europe Extras, otherwise you will not be able to use your device to make calls or texts, and you will not be able to use your data in any way.
If you purchase one of our Around the World Extras, you can roam in an additional 73 destinations. You can either purchase a one-off 8-day or 15-day Around the World Extra. If you do not purchase one of these extras, you will be subject to our per minute, text and MB roaming charges.
Please note: a 25GB roaming fair use policy applies to monthly data usage
Vodafone Spend Manager helps you keep in control of any out-of-plan charges, such as roaming charges and international calls, by setting a limit on how much extra you can spend each month. That means no nasty bill shocks. This will help you manage your roaming, or you can even disable it altogether.
Any spending limits you set will work when you're roaming, however, if you've set your out-of-plan charges spend limit to £0, this means you won't be able to roam. We recommend reviewing your limit before you travel to make sure you get the most out of your phone when travelling abroad by setting your out-of-plan charges limit to £0.
You can add, change or remove your spending limit at any time for free in the My Vodafone App, in My Vodafone account or by calling us on 41156, free from your Vodafone mobile. Find out more on our dedicated Spend manager page.
European Roaming Extras are effective from the date of purchase and last for 8 days from the date of purchase.
There are four options you can purchase:
an SMS Extra
bundle Extra consisting of SMS, Minutes and Data
Each last for eight days.
You can purchase two different Extras, e.g. 8-day Europe Data Extra and 8-day Europe Minutes Extra together, however, you cannot purchase two of the same Extra at once.
You can only make calls, send texts or use data in Zone B destinations by purchasing a European Roaming Extra.
You cannot roll over the Extra if you are roaming for less than 8 days.
European Roaming Passes allow you to use your monthly UK allowance of calls, texts and data in a Zone B destination.
A pass can be purchased at any time. It will remain on your account and will become active when you start roaming.
Your pass will last for either 8 or 15 days, depending on what pass you purchased.
You cannot purchase two passes at once so if your first pass runs out, you will have to purchase an additional pass.
You cannot roll over the Pass if you are roaming for less than 8 days.
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 a minute for calls
£0.01p a 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
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.
