Vaya started selling mobile plans to Australian customers about 9 years ago, and is now owned by Optus.
Vaya mobile plans are all around filled with value, but especially if you're looking for big data.
Generally, we think Vaya will suit anyone who is after a no-commitment, zero-frills plan. It has:
There's not much in the way of negatives from Vaya. Its only real pain point is:
Vaya offers monthly mobile plans that range from $14 for 5GB all the way up to $56 for 64GB.
Vaya's $14 for 5GB plan represents one of the best entry-level plans on the market.
That's not to say Vaya's bigger data plans don't also hold their own, with all its plans (other than the Small plan) costing you $1 per GB or cheaper.
Vaya should give you solid reception inside metropolitan areas, and decent coverage in many rural areas.
When you have questions or problems, you can get in touch with Vaya any day of the week through various methods:
Vaya likes to keep its plans simple so it only offers one handy extra feature.
If you refer a friend to Vaya, you'll receive a $15 credit to your account when they activate their plan. This isn't much, but it's still worth a month of Vaya's Small mobile plan.
While Vaya is a strong provider offering great value for your money, there are some other equally good providers to check out if you're still unsure:
Another option on the Optus network:
If bigger data means more to you, amaysim offers better value than Vaya on its bigger data mobile plans.
For better coverage:
If coverage is a concern, consider Boost Mobile. It runs on the full Telstra 4G network, which means you'll get the same coverage as with Telstra itself, but without the premium price tag.
For more features:
If Vaya's lack of extra features is a bummer for you, consider Optus. Being a bigger provider, Optus offers access to features such as Optus Sport, data-free streaming of some services, data sharing and more.

What if I want to keep my current phone number?
Vaya makes keeping your current number easy. During the activation process, select "yes" to bring your current mobile number across to Vaya, and it will do the rest. It should take 1-3 business days for your mobile number to transfer across to Vaya.
If your current number is under someone else's name (a parent or partner), it might be trickier. Check our guide on how to transfer ownership of your mobile number.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs.

Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category.

Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
