Vodafone is slashing its international and roaming charges for prepay, pay monthly and business customers.
Customers traveling abroad can make calls, send text messages and picture messages from over 35 countries without being charged roaming rates from June 1 until the end of August.
Current Vodafone Passport customers will automatically receive the promotion enabling them to receive UK rates when abroad while other customers can sign up to the service from May 15 by texting the word ‘Passport’ to 97888 if on a pay monthly deal, or to 2345 if on prepay.
From May 15, prepay customers on the Simply tariff will be able to make international calls from 5p per minute to landlines and mobiles. Customers can opt in to the new Vodafone International call plan by calling 36888 or texting the word ‘international’ to 2345.
Vodafone UK consumer director Ian Shepherd said: “These are two great value offers for our customers this summer. With our Vodafone Passport promotion you can sit on the beach with your phone switched on knowing you can take and make a call just as you would if you were in your back garden.
“Vodafone International is good news for the millions of UK pay as you go customers as they can now make calls to family and friends around the world from just 5p.”
