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 1GB will cost $1,024. 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 1GB will cost $1,024. 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.
