Why Pay as you go with Vodafone?

No credit checks

Credit checks aren't required for any of our Pay as you go plans, so you'll always get a SIM.

No contracts

Come and go as you please - you won't need to sign a contract, and your plan will only renew if you want it to.

Total Rollover

Any unused data from your bundle will automatically roll over into the next 30 days.


With our Pay as you go SIM, you choose how you want to enjoy our brand new 30-day bundles - now with more data plus unlimited texts and minutes.

Either get a free SIM card and choose a bundle later, or get a SIM pre-loaded with a bundle right away.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you're new to Vodafone, you can buy a Pay as you go Bundle online, or in your nearest store.

If you're an existing Pay as you go customer, you'll need to make sure you have enough credit in your account before you can opt into your chosen bundle. You can opt in by:

  • Logging in to My Vodafone
  • Calling 4354 free from your Vodafone phone
  • Texting BIGVALUE10, BIGVALUE15, BIGVALUE20, BIGVALUE30 or BIGVALUE40 to 2345, free from your Vodafone Pay as you go phone. You'll need to send the text from the phone you want to add the bundle to.

Please note: Once you've opted in to your Pay as you go Bundle, you'll pay our standard Pay as you go rates if it expires and you don't renew, or if you opt out of your bundle early.

With our free SIM, you can choose to order a blank SIM card that will arrive at your address.

Then, when you're ready to start using it, simply insert the card into your phone, choose one of our Pay as you go Bundles and top up your account with the value of your chosen bundle - we'll then convert this into your bundle.

For example, if you want to use our £10 bundle, just top up your account with £10 and we'll do the rest.

If you want your bundle to automatically renew each month, make sure you have enough credit on your account before your bundle's renewal date.

With our Pay as you go bundles, you can use your data, minutes and texts in 51 European destinations as you would at home, completely free of charge.

If you're travelling outside of these destinations, you can always buy one of our Around the World roaming Extras, which give you an allowance of data, minutes and texts to use in 73 additional destinations.

Otherwise, roaming charges will still apply in these other destinations and for customers on our Pay as you go base plan.

Head to our Travelling abroad page for more on roaming charges and using your phone in other countries.

Whether you're joining Vodafone from another network, or switching from one of our Pay Monthly plans to Pay as you go, you can find out more about what steps you need to take here.
