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.
To opt in from 1st December call 40062 from your handset
Countries included in this are: Ireland, Portugal, Spain, France, Channel Islands, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Litchenstein, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Greece, Malta, Madeira, Canary Islands.
