Plan details

UK data, minutes and texts
An allowance to use data, call standard UK mobiles and landlines (starting 01, 02 or 03), and standard texts to UK mobiles. You can also make calls to 08 and 118 numbers, but these aren't included in your plan, so please remember that they are subject to an additional charge. You can find more information on this in the Additional Charges table below.

Take your home plan abroad
You can use your UK allowance of data, minutes and texts in Zone A (Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, Iceland and Norway) at no extra cost.

There is a daily charge of £2.42 a day to use your allowance in our Europe Zone (Zone B). You can reduce this cost by using one of our Roaming Passes, which are available for our Europe Zone.

Roaming further afield in Zone D costs £7.39 a day for all plans. You can check out all of our zones and destinations on our roaming page

Just to note, there is a 25GB of data roaming fair usage policy that applies to your monthly data usage and using your phone abroad for long periods of time may incur additional charges. Terms apply

Vodafone customers who purchased a Vodafone Basics plan before 22 July 2022 do not have roaming services included. These plans are for UK use only.

My Vodafone App and VeryMe Rewards
My Vodafone makes life admin easier, so you can focus on doing what you love. You can manage your account on-the-go, check your usage and bills easily and get help from us whenever you need it. Just download it from the App Store or Google Play Store once you have your plan.

Our new rewards programme puts you at the very heart of it, with weekly discounts and giveaways based on what you love. The more you use VeryMe Rewards, the more it becomes very you - and all Vodafone Pay monthly customers can benefit.

Tethering
Your Vodafone Basics SIM can be used to share your device's data allowance with another device at no extra charge. You can even tether or hotspot all of your data to other devices if you want.

Changing your plan
Vodafone Basics plans can be upgraded once your 12-month contract ends, or you can swap to another SIM only plan at any point during your 12-month contract. All SIM only plans are eligible, so if you're looking for something that isn't included with Vodafone Basics, take a look at our SIM only plans for more plans, and even more options.

If you don't use it, you shouldn't have to pay for it. But if you're wondering if there's anything you'd miss, make sure you'll be happy without the features listed below:

  • International calls are not available with Vodafone Basics

  • Premium calls starting 09, Premium messages, MMS, M-Pay (or mobile payment software), and calls and outgoing messages with adult content are barred

  • Upgrades aren't available during your plan, but you can switch to another SIM only or Vodafone Basics plan

  • Extras aren't compatible, except for Data, 08 number minute Extras, and Roaming Passes for our Europe Zone

Frequently asked questions
