Vaya mobile plans

Vaya is the first mobile provider to offer a price match guarantee, making it a great option for the budget conscious.


What services does Vaya offer?

Vaya has come a long way since it was acquired by Amaysim at the start of 2016. The MVNO has improved its plans and gone on the offensive, launching the country's first mobile plan price match guarantee for its SIM-only plans. As part of its brand promise, the network will price match any comparable SIM plan and offer users a month free.

Vaya runs on the Optus 4G network, and similar to its parent company Amaysim, exclusively offers SIM only month-to-month plans with a varying range of talk, text and data inclusions.

How much does Vaya cost?

Pricing for Vaya's range of SIM-only plans starts at $18 a month and range up to $34 per month. There are two types of plan on offer – The Power Plan and Unlimited Plans, which offer varying levels of talk and text inclusions. As you can guess from the name, the Unlimited plans offer unlimited talk and text, while the Power Plans only include $650 worth of national calls (but still unlimited SMS).

As with many other providers today, the main differentiator between the different plan tiers is data. Both the Power Plan S and the Unlimited S plans include 1.5GB of data, the 'M' level of both plans include 2GB, 'L' gets you 3GB of data on both plan options while the XL size includes 7GB of data to use every month.

Additional data on all plans comes in at $10/GB, which will be automatically charged to your account should you exceed your monthly allowance.

What extras does Vaya offer?

Playing in the low cost mobile plan market, Vaya doesn't offer a lot in the way of extras to its customers, instead focusing on its price match guarantee to ensure low prices.



  • Price match guarantee. If you find a cheaper price on a similar 4G SIM-only plan, Vaya will match it and offer you a month free.
  • Optus 4G plus coverage. Vaya offers its services using the Optus 4G plus network.
  • No lock in contract. Vaya's plans are all billed monthly with no lock in contracts, so you can leave whenever you want.


  • No large data allowances. The largest data allowance is 7GB for phone plans, which may not be enough to suit heavy mobile users.
  • No international inclusions. While you can make international calls and messages using your Vaya plan, there are no inclusions on offer on any plan level.

      Hi Nig,

      Thanks for your question.

      Most mobile plan providers allow for number porting. You just have to directly contact your new provider to request this.

      For more information on number porting, please refer here.

      Hi Kai,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, simply call Vaya or login to your ‘My Account’ online to activate Global roaming. Vaya does require a $200 bond payment from a nominated credit card in order to activate Global Roaming.

      Hi Niro,

      You can order Vaya’s SIM from their web site, but they don’t offer a student discount.
