  • Vodafone Pay as you go customers can now stream and share their holiday moments worry-free thanks to inclusive roaming across 40 destinations*- that’s more than any other UK mobile provider.
  • Throughout July and August, Pay as you go customers will receive, 100 minutes, 100 texts and 500MB of data to use whilst roaming within Vodafone’s inclusive roaming zone.
  • Vodafone’s £20 and £30 Big Value Bundles now give customers double data in the UK as well.

Today Vodafone UK is marking the start of summer with the launch of inclusive roaming on its Pay as you go Big Value Bundles. Whether lounging in Lisbon or chilling out in Oslo, customers can now make the most of their smartphone on holiday, thanks to a generous inclusive roaming allowance which can be used across 40 European destinations.

Vodafone’s inclusive roaming covers more destinations than any other network. And with 4G in 34 destinations, customers are now free to share their holiday moments with a plan that keeps up with them. Throughout July and August, customers will receive 100 minutes, 100 texts and 500MB of data to use anywhere in our inclusive destinations. So wherever they’re heading, they can always be connected to the things that matter most.

Combined with our latest 4G smartphone, the Vodafone Smart ultra 7 which is available for only £135 on Pay as you go, it’s a great deal offering the latest tech with plenty of data. Fully equipped with a quick shot 13MP rear-facing camera and 5MP front-facing ‘selfie cam’ with flash, as well as a sharp 5.5inch full HD display, the Vodafone Smart ultra 7 delivers a stylish finish with a first rate performance at an unbelievable price.

Glafkos Persianis, Vodafone UK Commercial Director, said “We are pleased to offer customers such great value for money on our Pay as you go Big Value Bundles. It’s important for us to allow customers to feel free to enjoy their smartphones on holiday worry-free with inclusive roaming, so they can share their holiday moments with the people they love the most, wherever they are.”

This offer follows a recent increase in Big Value Bundle UK data allowances, giving customers the freedom to enjoy more of what they love for less, with double the data on selected Big Value Bundles.* Meaning that Vodafone customers can take advantage of our network in the UK as well as our inclusive roaming destinations this summer.

Our thoughts go out to those affected by the shocking events in Istanbul yesterday evening. We know that at times like these, customers need to be able to get in contact with loved ones without worrying about the cost.

Vodafone will credit all Vodafone UK customers roaming in Istanbul for all calls, texts and data   between 8.00 pm on the evening of 28th June and 23:59 on Thursday 30th June.

We’ll continue to monitor the situation closely.



Glasgow talent and singer-songwriter Robbi McFaulds is celebrating after becoming the next Vodafone Future Breaker, giving the unsigned eighteen year old a fantastic platform to launch his budding music career. The Vodafone Future Breakers initiative, launched as part of the Vodafone Big Top 40 partnership with Global, has given Robbi the money-can’t-buy chance to record and produce his own single with industry professionals, as well as having the live session broadcast online with the Big Top 40.

Before his big break, Robbi, originally from Airdrie, began performing at a young age, working his way up through the pubs and clubs across Glasgow, before performing at larger venues as a support act and building his own fanbase. With inspiration from the likes of The 1975, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Ed Sheeran, McFaulds hopes this will be a stepping stone to something bigger and is planning his first EP release in the summer.

On his experience with Vodafone Future Breakers, Robbi commented; “This experience has been phenomenal, I absolutely love performing live but it’s been brilliant to be given the chance to record professionally and hear new music coming to life- that’s one of the best feelings as a musician. I finally feel like all the work I have put in is beginning to pay off.”

 Fronted by the Vodafone Big Top 40’s very own Marvin Humes, Vodafone Future Breakers is continuing the search for the very best unsigned talent from across the UK to uncover the next big thing in music.  Listeners, budding artists, DJs and band members can enter their tracks/videos through the dedicated hub where they could win a recording studio session with a top industry producer!
