This morning I walked through driving rain, freezing winds and complete darkness at 6.30AM. It was a delightful walk and just made me smile inside and out. However, if you want to swap this beautiful wind, snow, rain and hail for some horrible sunshine and irritating sandy beaches (like in the Cayman Islands perhaps), then you should get Vodafone WorldTraveller (£5 per day) and use your UK package just as if you were back home.
Voda have just added 17 additional destinations to their list of supported countries, and you can now get 4G connectivity in these places too. If you’re jetting off over Christmas, check to see if you’re landing in one of these places…
Antigua & Barbuda, Cayman Islands, Croatia, Israel, Japan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Sri Lanka and Thailand
There’s 23 other places too, although we could only find 8 on their main website.
Check out the full press release below. You can also travel to selected European destinations and use your UK minutes, texts and data bundle for £3 per day and get 4G in some of those countries too. Here’s a list of those places.
ODAFONE UK CUSTOMERS ABLE TO USE 4G IN 40 DESTINATIONS WORLDWIDE
IN TIME FOR THE FESTIVE PERIOD
Vodafone UK customers will be able to take advantage of ultrafast 4G roaming in 40 countries with the addition of 17 destinations in time for Christmas and the New Year.
Antigua & Barbuda, Cayman Islands, Croatia, Israel, Japan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Sri Lanka and Thailand have joined the existing 23 destinations announced earlier in the year meaning that Vodafone customers will be able to use ultrafast 4G services and devices in more overseas than any other UK mobile provider. Fiji and Kuwait are expected to come on line before Christmas bringing the total to 40 destinations.
Pay monthly Vodafone 4G customers travelling to any 4G destination in Vodafone’s Europe Zone can take their UK minutes, texts and data bundle with them for just £3 a day with Vodafone EuroTraveller. Customers travelling to a 4G destination within Vodafone’s WorldTraveller Zone can take their UK minutes, texts and data bundle with them for just £5 a day*.
All Vodafone Red price plans come with UK unlimited calls and texts, so customers using Vodafone EuroTraveller or Vodafone WorldTraveller are able to call or text home, without worrying about unexpected bills. There’s no charge for receiving calls or texts on both services and customers will only pay for the days they use their mobile abroad.
Cindy Rose, Vodafone UK’s Head of Consumer, said: “Around four million people head overseas during the festive period so today’s news is perfect for those wanting to upload photos or videos of their celebrations to their social media sites or check maps online whilst on the move.”
Vodafone EuroTraveller and Vodafone WorldTraveller are available to pay monthly and small business plans customers, whether on 4G or not. For further information visit www.vodafone.co.uk/4g-abroad
