  • Customers who opt into Vodafone EuroTraveller are now able to take their UK minutes, texts and data with them to anywhere in our Europe Zone for the reduced cost of £2 a day until the end of August

Vodafone UK 4G customers, including business travellers, will now be able to take advantage of 4G when using their smartphones and tablets in parts of Europe. 4G customers with compatible devices travelling to Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal will for the first time be able to enjoy ultrafast 4G on Vodafone’s own networks in these countries.

What’s more, any Pay monthly customer, whether on 4G or not, who opts in to Vodafone EuroTraveller* can now take their existing UK voice minutes, texts and data, when they are travelling anywhere in our Europe Zone, for just £2 a day including VAT until the end of August**. This means, anyone on a Vodafone Red 4G plan and signed up for Vodafone EuroTraveller will now be able to download maps, catch up on Twitter, search for the best local restaurants or download their business presentations on ultrafast 4G using their generous UK data allowance in these four countries.

All Vodafone Red price plans come with UK unlimited calls and texts so customers with Vodafone EuroTraveller travelling in our Europe Zone are able to call or text home, free from the worry of unexpected bills. With Vodafone EuroTraveller, calls received whilst travelling in our Europe Zone are free and customers only pay for the days they use their mobile in these countries. For example, a customer on a Vodafone Red 4G price plan who has opted into Vodafone EuroTraveller will be able to use their unlimited UK minutes and texts plus their 3GB data allowance of ultrafast 4G in Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain for an extra £2 a day.
