Roaming updates

We’ve changed a number of Vodafone Pay monthly plans that include roaming in Europe, for both personal and business customers.

If you’re on a Pay monthly plan that started before 11 August 2021, there’s no change to your plan or the way you roam (while this plan is active).

How will this affect me?

If your Vodafone Pay monthly plan started before 11 August 2021:

There’s no change to the way you roam as long as you stay on your current mobile plan. You won’t need to pay any additional charges for roaming.

If you joined Vodafone, upgraded or changed your plan on or after 11 August 2021:

If your plan doesn’t include roaming in Europe, there’s a daily charge for using your phone in our European roaming zones. View our roaming zone list to see which country is in which zone. These charges started on 31 January 2022 for personal and small business customers.

For other business customers, changes came into effect in November 2021, but charges started on 31 January 2022.

European roaming charges don’t apply to Xtra Airtime Plans with 4 Xtra benefits.

How much will it cost to use my device abroad from January 2022?

It depends on your Vodafone plan, when it started, and where you’ll be roaming.

How to keep costs down when roaming

Further questions

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.
