When travelling abroad with one of our Prepaid phone services we want you to savour, capture and share fantastic experiences without the hassle of getting a local SIM, buying a roaming SIM or searching for WiFi.
With Vodafone, we have Prepaid Roaming Add-ons for you to use in selected countries around the world if your last recharge was Prepaid Plus or Pay and Go. You’ll have the convenience of taking your Australian phone number overseas with you.
We have the perfect Add-on for a long weekend 3 day getaway or a 7 day holiday – you can purchase as many Add-ons as needed for the length of your travels. We’ll notify you by text message about your usage and you can always track your usage in My Vodafone. If you like to surf the web or share your experiences on social media – then select a Roaming Data Add-on. Alternatively, the Roaming Add-on includes calls, text and data.
The expiry period for the Add-on will begin from midnight Australia Eastern Standard Time on the day of purchase. My Vodafone is free rated so as long as you have internet access, there won't be any data charges to purchase the Roaming Add-on.
Once you’ve purchased the Add-on, you also need to activate roaming through My Vodafone.

Using VoLTE when you're on international roaming may give you a better call quality with a faster call connection. You can also browse the internet or use apps at the same time.
