Using data overseas

On your phone

$5 Roaming is the best option for using data on your phone overseas, as it lets you use the data included in your plan and works in 47 countries. It costs just $5 extra on the days you make or receive a call, send a TXT or use data.

If you don’t have $5 Roaming, or are travelling to a country not covered by $5 Roaming, our Pay-As-You-Go Roaming rates of $1 per MB will apply. We don’t recommend this for heavy usage though, as using 30MB's of data in a day would cost you $30. So if you’re not on $5 Roaming the best thing to do is opt-in via My Vodafone. If you’re travelling to a country without $5 Roaming, use your data sparingly and use Wi-Fi where available.

If you’re on an older plan that isn’t eligible for $5 Roaming, you can switch plans at no charge provided it’s the same or higher value by calling +61 414 141 414.

On your tablet or mobile broadband

On mobile broadband, we only offer Pay-As-You-Go rates of $1 per MB. We don’t recommend this for heavy usage though, as using 50MB's of data in a day would cost you $50. So if you’re travelling with a tablet or your mobile broadband device, use mobile data sparingly and use Wi-Fi where available.

Remember, you can also consider tethering your phone plan’s included data to your laptop or tablet when you’re on $5 Roaming.

Using 4G overseas

Currently you can use 4G overseas in 6 countries around the world. Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and United Kingdom - we'll be adding more countries soon.

When in these countries, provided you have a 4G compatible phone and plan your mobile will connect to the 4G network automatically wherever it's available.
