Get Free Roaming Data On Vodafone!

Customers on Vodafone UK who are on £40 or over price plans will get an added bonus now of getting 25MB a day free data roaming in certain EU countries as from 1st December.  Before now on these plans Vodafone gave you 5MB so this extra data is more than welcome for myself as a Vodafone customer who does a lot of traveling.

Anyone on price plans below £40 a month can add this pack to your account for £10 for 1 month giving you the same 25MB a day.  Pay As You Go customers will pay £2 for 1 day access at 25MB.

Vodafone today announced much simpler and lower pricing for using a smartphone whilst travelling in Europe, making it more affordable for customers to email, access social media sites and surf the Internet abroad.

The new, simple and transparent pricing provides daily and monthly rates for customers to use their domestic smartphone data plans when they are abroad. Those customers who travel occasionally can take a domestic data plan abroad for only €2 per day, which represents a cost reduction of up to 60% over existing plans and includes an increase to the data allowance. Alternatively, frequent travellers can select to take a price plan which includes data roaming within their monthly domestic package. Both offers are available for consumer or business customers.

Vittorio Colao, Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone, said: “This is the year of the smartphone and we want our 35 million European data users to feel free to use their devices in Europe in the same way as they do at home. We expect smartphone sales in Europe to grow from 32 per cent today to more than 70 per cent by 2013, and we want to drive that growth with what we believe to be the best value, market-leading roaming data packages.”

The new plans are being rolled-out in Vodafone’s major European markets during November and December 2010, in time for the winter holiday season, and across the Company’s entire European footprint by summer, next year. They build on Vodafone’s leading position in the industry following the launch in 2005 of its Passport voice roaming service, which is now used by around 28 million customers.

Today’s announcement, which will benefit the growing number of customers wanting to check emails and use applications when they roam, is backed by a major marketing campaign captioned ‘feel free to use your smartphone abroad.’
