Roaming in Europe

In Europe and the United Kingdom Vodafone customers can roam at no extra cost. So, you can touch base with home, discover things to do, and share those experiences without any worries.
A 35GB roaming data allowance for travelling to Europe comes as standard with our pay as you go Unlimited plans.

Please note when you are travelling by air or sea that Roaming rates apply in International Airspace and International Waters and are not covered by EU Roaming Regulation.
Under EU regulation we provide you with information on roaming services  when you enter another EU member state. This includes information such as premium rate numbers and freephone numbers which may be subject to increased costs when roaming.  It also includes emergency service and public alert system information.

  • Outside Europe, Vodafone customers can opt in to "RED Roaming" for the best daily rate. Text RED to 50020
