When travelling abroad we want you to call clients, access emails and find your next meeting without worrying about hidden costs or searching for WiFi. So say goodbye to telcos that overcharge you to travel, and hello to Vodafone – the first telco in Australia to offer $5 Roaming.
With $5 Roaming you can use your phone, tablet or mobile broadband plan for $5 extra per day in over 100 countries. These may vary, so check the countries listed below before you travel.
If you're on a Vodafone Infinite, Plus or Vodafone Infinite Data Plan, you can use your included data with $5 Roaming, along with your call and text inclusions. Excludes data capped at speeds of up to 1.5Mbps, 2Mbps, 10Mbps and 25Mbps. Once you’ve used your included data, you’ll be charged $5/GB.
If you're on an Ultra+ Plan, you can use unlimited mobile data on your phone. If you use more than 30GB Hotspot data, you'll be charged $5 for each extra 1GB of Hotspot data.
You can access $5 Roaming for a maximum of 90 days per calendar day. T&C apply.
No hidden charges
You’ll only be charged $5 extra on days that you use your plan inclusions.
$5 Roaming is available in New Zealand, Bali, UK, US and Thailand.
Ditch the roaming SIM
Take your own number overseas so you never miss a call or text.
Easy to use
$5 Roaming should be activated for you - just turn your phone on when travelling in an eligible country.
Our coverage map lets you search which countries have $5 Roaming and Pay As You Go Roaming rates. If you're going on a cruise, we also have Maritime Roaming rates.
If you're using international roaming in the USA, you may be able to use VoLTE through some of their networks. You’ll need a compatible device with VoLTE enabled and be on an eligible plan. Find out more on our VoLTE support page.
If you’re on an eligible phone, tablet or mobile broadband plan, you can use your included data, calls and texts on selected flights with participating international airlines for $5 extra a day – similar to how you can access $5 Roaming in over 100 countries. For more information, check out In-Flight Roaming support page.
