Our customer support response to COVID-19

We recognise that many of our customers’ needs and situations have rapidly changed as a result of the COVID-19 impacts.

To continue to support you during this challenging time, we have introduced a range of initiatives to keep you connected with those most important to you. We’re also working hard to increase local contact centre capacity, in order to take more of your calls.

Our initiatives to help Vodafone customers

Financial support for customers during COVID-19

We are supporting all Vodafone customers that are being impacted by stay at home restrictions by offering extended payment terms to customers that require additional time to pay their account. Impacted customers who are not able to pay their account by the bill due date should contact our collections team on 1300 650 405 to discuss our assistance options. This assistance may include the suspension of late payment fees and the creation of a payment arrangement plan to avoid any service restrictions or disconnection of your account. We also have support for customers experiencing longer term financial hardship. An arrangement is available for customers that apply via our financial hardship.

Data overage cost has been reduced to $5/GB in Australia

We’ve reduced the cost of data overage in Australia to $5/GB permanently for consumer and business postpaid mobile, tablet or mobile broadband plan customers who are not on endless data plans from 6th May 2020. This is to support customers who exceed their data inclusions and enter overage.

3. Customer Support
We are asking customers to use self-service channels wherever possible. While we’re still experiencing some impact from various COVID-19 restrictions, our customer contact centres are currently operating. However, there may be longer than usual call wait times.

 

4. Visit a retail store
We have opened some of our retail stores that have previously been closed. For everyone’s health and wellbeing, we are strictly enforcing the Federal Government’s mandatory social distancing rules and guidelines around limiting the number of customers in our stores at any given time. Compliance with these measures is a condition of entry. At most stores, a Vodafone Host will advise when capacity has been reached and manage flow of customers into store.

In addition to social distancing, we have increased hygiene measures and cleaning in place. Our retail employees cannot assist anyone who is unwell or has been overseas in the past 14 days. You can find your nearest Vodafone store’s opening hours on our store locator page.
