Before you go

Roaming with Vodafone just works when you land. You can talk, TXT or use data in over 100 destinations, and in over 70 countries.

You want to be able to use your mobile when you want without worrying about costs, so if you haven't already, download the My Vodafone app - you can track your usage while you are away. Pay bills, Top Up or buy more data.

For calls, TXTs and data overseas

If you're on one of our current Pay Monthly plans, then you're likely to be able to use Daily Roaming , which is just like using your everyday plan but with a simple daily charge. It’s available in over 100 destinations!

On an older Pay Monthly legacy plan? Visit the Data Angel Overseas page for data roaming rates that apply to Daily Roaming destinations.

By sea or air?
It's worth checking the costs if you're taking a cruise or planning to use In-flight roaming on the plane as they vary and are different from our standard roaming rates.

Check your mobile

If you are using an older basic feature phone and want to make sure this will work overseas please give us a call 777 from your mobile or 0800 800 021 from a landline.If you're a business customer call 888 from your mobile before you go.

On arrival

When you reach your destination and switch on your phone, you'll get a welcome TXT from us. It'll tell you how much it costs to use your phone overseas, for example if your destination is covered by Daily Roaming, as well as other useful information.

Data use when roaming

My Vodafone will help you keep track of your data use but if you do happen to run low, we’ve got you covered!

For current Pay Monthly plans, we have Flexi Data . We’ll TXT you when you’ve used 80% of your data allowance and again at 100% with a link in that TXT to where you can choose how much data you want.

If you’re on an older Pay Monthly plan or are in a destination not covered by Daily Roaming, then we have Data Angel Overseas. As before, we’ll TXT you when you need to get more data and show you the options available and costs for your destination.

Using Prepay? There’s simple data pricing so you can stay in control. Check out How to Top Up your Prepay when travelling.
