Using your mobile

Simply activate Global Roaming on your own network before you leave home. After that, all your calls and other services you use will be billed to your home network account. If you have a Prepay or Pay-as-you-go mobile, you may be able to use our local recharge cards to top up your balance.

Why use Vodafone?
