Vodafone offers unlimited voice, data in 18 countries at Rs 5000/month

Vodafone today introduced an unlimited roaming pack for Indian users in 18 countries priced at Rs 500 per day or Rs 5,000 per month.

Both incoming and outgoing calls as well as data usage will be free.

“We launched our flagship unlimited international roaming proposition for USA, Singapore and UAE in April, and are now very excited to extend it to these additional destinations,” said Avneesh Khosla, Associate Director – Consumer Business, Vodafone India.

The plan is valid in European countries such as the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, Greece, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, Hungary, Malta, and Albania.

Outside Europe, the free services are valid in USA, UAE, Singapore and Malaysia.

“With calls and data becoming completely free in these countries, we are eliminating the hassle of carrying local SIM cards or looking out for public WiFi during overseas travel,” Khosla said.

“Customers can freely upload photos & videos, look up places on maps, check emails and stay connected back home using their Vodafone number without worrying about high international roaming bills,” he added.

Besides offering unlimited services in the above countries, the pack also allows consumers to get cheap roaming tariffs in 42 other countries, including Japan, Qatar, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Egypt.

“In all these countries, subscribers can receive incoming calls for free, make any call for Re. 1/min and browse data at Re. 1/MB only,” the Indian operator said.

The pack is likely to be benefit business users.

The pack is available at multiple price points ranging from Rs 5000 for 28 days to Rs. 500 for every 24 hours.

It can be activated on the customer service app or on the portal, the company said.

Europe, USA, UAE, Singapore & Malaysia comprise more than 50% of Vodafone’s total roamers and international traffic.

By offering free roaming, the company is trying to prevent its lucrative customers from porting out of its network.
