Features & Benefits

Vodafone Global Roaming

And it's just £5 a day to use your UK allowances in 60 Roam-further destinations. You'll only be charged on the days you use your phone. If you're roaming anywhere else, you'll simply pay the standard roaming rates.

This plan comes with 3-month free trial of Secure Net, then £1 a month. Vodafone Secure Net is a simple way for you and your family to stay safer online, whatever devices you’re using on the Vodafone mobile network.

My Vodafone app

Stay in control with the My Vodafone app is a great way to manage your account on the go. See your usage and bills, find your nearest Wi-Fi hotspot, browse the help section and much more. Available from the App store or Google Play.

Network Satisfaction Guarantee

As a new or upgrading customer, you have 30 days to put Vodafone network to the test. And if you have feedback about your network experience after your first 30 days, you can use the new Network Satisfaction feature in the My Vodafone app to share any feedback or frustration about signal or network performance. In return, you will receive a 250MB UK data bonus to use for seven days. You can only collect one data bonus every 30 days.


You can upgrade your plan from 6 months into your contract, to a plan of equal or greater value. There'll be a fee based on the value of the phone and the number of days remaining on your original contract. (Flexi-upgrades don?t apply if you bought from a third party, such as Carphone Warehouse.)
