Customers are now able to buy the International Super SIMs from Vodafone outlets nationwide for £15 and £20 on a 30-day contract. Calls to the USA, Canada and China cost 5p per minute to landlines and mobiles and 5p per minute to landlines and 15p per minute to mobiles when calling 54 countries, including those across Europe and in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Japan.

Those calling landlines and mobiles in 24 countries across the Caribbean, Asia, Middle East, South America and Africa will pay 10p per minute and 20p per minute respectively, while everywhere else costs 30p to call both landlines and mobiles.

The £15 plan also includes 200 UK minutes and unlimited texts, while the £20 plan comes with 500 UK minutes and unlimited texts. The texts are standard messages sent from the UK to other UK mobiles.
