Bills & Payments FAQs

Understanding your bill

We've put together some handy guides to help you understand your bill – we hope you'll find them useful.

See here for Bill pay or here for Broadband, Landline or TV.

The most common cause of a bill being higher than normal, is calls being made that aren’t covered in your plan such as premium numbers. Have a look at your plan details and then check your Other Charges section to see did you make any calls outside of your plan.

If your first bill is higher than expected this may be caused by part month charges or installation fees for your broadband.

You'll be charged for your Vodafone services at the same time each month. The date by which you have to pay is shown on your bill. If you have an automatic payment set up, like direct debit, you don't need to worry about when to pay as it will be automatically debited from your account 14 days after the due date.

If you still need help understanding your bill, please chat with our customer care team by clicking the Chat button on this screen.

Other payment options:

Online – You can make a secure card payment online via your My Vodafone account here. Simply log in and select the ‘Make a payment’ option. Please have your credit or debit card details to hand to make a payment.
