Talk to the world for less! Vodafone UK launches market leading offers

Vodafone UK has launched two new market leading offers – Inclusive Roaming for pay as you go customers and International Savers for pay monthly customers.

We know how vital it is for our customers to be connected to the people they love, across the world, whenever they want. Continuing our journey to free our customers from unnecessary hassle, Vodafone UK has launched two new market leading offers – Inclusive Roaming for pay as you go customers and International Savers for pay monthly customers.

 

Hot on the heels of our announcement earlier this week that Vodafone is the global industry leader in 4G roaming*, offering significantly more international 4G roaming destinations than any other operator, our pay as you go customers can now enjoy free roaming included in their Big Value Bundles.  With each Big Value Bundle purchased between 1 March and 14 June, customers will receive an additional 100 minutes, 100 texts and 500MB of data to use in 40 destinations. So, from Barcelona to Berlin and beyond, customers can now check in with loved ones, and check out what’s on – without the need to constantly check their balance.

 

International Savers for pay monthly customers mean they can enjoy the most competitive and cost effective extras available.  For just £3 extra a month, customers get 100 minutes to speak to anyone, almost anywhere – whether it’s a fiancé in France, or a fourth cousin twice removed Down Under. For those who want even more talking time, for just £7.50 per month customers can enjoy 500 minutes.  Unlike other networks, International Savers lets customers call unlimited mobile or landline numbers from the UK to 100 destinations worldwide.

 

Glafkos Persianis, Consumer Director at Vodafone UK says: “We continue to focus on removing the barriers which might stop our customers from calling loved ones, wherever in the world they may be. We are delighted to be giving them simpler options that make their lives easier and give great value for money – no other UK company offers as many minutes for such a low price to so many global destinations as we do with our International Savers.

 

Customers looking to take advantage of Inclusive Roaming or an International Saver can do so via the website, speak to one of our advisors on the phone via 191 or in-store at one of our 500+ retail stores.

About Vodafone UK

Having made the UK’s first mobile phone call and sent the first text message, Vodafone has a history as a tech pioneer. In 2018 we made the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G, and were first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. We now have 5G in more places than anyone else, with multiple locations now live across the UK and the rest of Europe.

Today we serve more than 18 million mobile and fixed line customers in the UK, with 4G network coverage at 99%.  Our customers voted us the UK’s Best Mobile Network at the 2018 Trusted Reviews Awards – for the second year in a row. To help deliver Gigabit UK, our full-fibre broadband roll-out programme now covers 15 UK towns and cities through partnerships with CityFibre and Openreach.

Connectivity is at the heart of what we do as it gives us a huge opportunity for good. We are using our network, products, talents and technology to help society prosper and respond to significant social and environmental issues.  Our free Digital Parenting magazine is helping families and schools across the UK to navigate the online world safely. Meanwhile, the Vodafone Foundation’s work with researchers at Imperial College is developing personalised cancer treatment using the processing power of smartphones.

We are part of Vodafone Group, one of the world’s largest technology communications companies, with mobile operations in 26 countries, partnerships with mobile networks in 55 more, and fixed broadband operations in 19 markets.  As of 30 September 2019, Vodafone Group had approximately 625 million mobile customers, 27 million fixed broadband customers, and 22 million TV customers – including all of the customers in Vodafone’s joint ventures and associates.
