Vodafone expands its $5 roaming offer with 11 new destinations

Matt Sayer 7 November 2018 NEWS

Travel more and pay less with Vodafone's souped-up global roaming offer.

International travellers already have plenty of reason to get their mobile service through Vodafone thanks to the company's impressive $5 roaming initiative. It's why we here at finder consider Vodafone's mobile plans the best for travelling overseas.

Today, Vodafone has stepped up its globetrotting game even further by adding 11 new destinations to the already sizeable list of countries covered by its $5 roaming offer. This brings the total up to 80 different locations around the world, including popular destinations like the USA, Fiji, Singapore and Indonesia.

If you're not familiar with how Vodafone's $5 roaming works, it allows you to use the call, text and data inclusions of your current Vodafone plan in any eligible country for just $5 a day. So if your current plan gets you 10GB of data a month, you can keep using it on your holiday in Malaysia for just $5 a day instead of having to purchase a specific travel pack or an entirely new international SIM card.

Using $5 roaming also means you don't need to worry about switching your phone number while you're out of the country. People can still call you on your regular number no matter where you are, and the people you call will be able to recognise your number and avoid confusion.

With the latest additions, the current list of destinations eligible for Vodafone's $5 roaming looks like this:

  • Albania
  • Argentina
