International Roaming

See the world with Vodafone.

When travelling abroad we want you to savour, capture and share every fantastic experience without worrying about bill shock or searching for WiFi.

With Vodafone you can use your phone like you would at home in over 50 countries for $5 extra per day and $0 in New Zealand for up to 90 days in any calendar year until 31 January 2017. $5 Roaming gives you access to your data, call and TXT Red plan inclusions.

You’ll automatically have access to $5 Roaming if you signed up to a plan after 23 April 2014. If you signed up to an eligible plan before 23 April 2014, you can activate $5 Roaming in My Vodafone.

You’ll only be charged for using $5 Roaming if you use your phone to call, text or use data overseas. If $5 Roaming is activated but you don’t use your phone, then you won’t be charged. When you return to Australia, if you’d like to use roaming again overseas, it’s best to leave $5 Roaming activated in preparation for your next trip – you won’t be charged the additional $5 when you use your phone in Australia.

From 29 June 2015, in-flight roaming will no longer be available and Wireless Maritime Service will no longer be supported, so Maritime Roaming is limited.
