How much will it cost if I go over my roaming UK data allowance while I'm abroad?

If you go over your UK data allowance – or ‘out-of-plan’ – while you’re in one of our inclusive roaming destinations, you’ll be charged the same rates as in the UK

The most you'll ever be charged is £39.33 a month. You can turn this limit off in your My Vodafone account or My Vodafone app

If you move abroad permanently or end up spending more time abroad than at home over a four-month period, you may incur extra charges when roaming. Find out how long you can roam and read our acceptable use policy.

Fair use policy on your UK data allowance when roaming

All our Pay monthly plans have a Fair Use threshold of 25GB a month when roaming in one of our inclusive roaming destinations

For example, if your plan includes 100GB data a month, you can use up to 25GB of data a month when roaming in one of our inclusive roaming destinations, without additional charges. If you exceed this threshold, you’ll be charged extra but we’ll warn you in advance (see below for details). 

The acceptable use limit on your Vodafone contract, and how to get more data, depends on when you joined us.

If you upgraded or joined Vodafone before 24 February 2021 

All unlimited data plans come with a data threshold of 25GB a month when roaming.

So when you take your Unlimited Lite, Unlimited or Unlimited Max plan abroad, you can use up to 25GB of data a month without any additional charges. This includes your inclusive roaming destinations and Roam-further destinations which cost £6 a day.

We'll text you when you've used 80% of your 25GB, and again when you've used it all.

Avoid extra charges by buying more data

We’ll also tell you how to buy more roaming data. You can buy as much as you like at:

  • £3.65 for 1GB 
  • £18.25 for 5GB

If you upgraded or joined Vodafone on 24 February 2021 or later 

All Pay monthly data plans come with a data threshold of 25GB a month when roaming in one of our inclusive roaming destinations

So when you use your data abroad, you can use up to 25GB of data a month without additional charges. This includes your inclusive roaming destinations and Roam-further destinations which cost £6 a day.

We'll text you when you've used 80% of your 25GB, and again when you've used it all.

If you reach this 25GB threshold and continue to use data in Roam-free, Global Roaming Plus and Roam-further destinations, you’ll be charged at a rate of £3.13 per 1GB until your monthly allowance renews.

 

Roaming update: We’re changing the number of Vodafone Pay monthly plans that include roaming in our European Zone, for our personal and business customers. If you’re on a Pay monthly plan that started before 11 August 2021, there will be no change to your plan, or to the way you roam, while you stay on that plan. Get more details on Vodafone roaming changes
