Vodafone EuroTraveller is a good deal


This weekend in Germany is the first time I have been able to use Vodafone’s new EuroTraveller package for roaming in Europe. On first acquaintance, assuming no nasty surprises when I get my bill, this is a brilliant deal. For £3 ($4.50) a day you can use all your UK minutes, text messages and data without restriction. This is a big improvement on the old system where you paid £2 for 25MB of data plus high charges for phone calls and texts.

In theory, therefore, unless you call premium numbers or numbers outside the UK there will be no extra charges. And for data users, this is an absolutely brilliant deal. No longer do you need worry about going over 25MB because the only limit is the size of your UK data plan.

Once you have opted in to EuroTraveller you will be charged the £3 once a day whenever you use the phone abroad, whether for call, text or data. So, for instance, a on a week’s vacation you will pay only £21 in order to continue using your phone as you would at home. In most cases EuroTraveller is a better bet than getting a local SIM card, especially for data, unless you plan to spend long periods in another European country.

UPDATE: EuroTraveller does not include any additional tethering data which you pay for in addition to the standard phone contract. The ceiling on your roaming data is whatever is included in the monthly allowance.


  1. On 25th August I purchased a new Vodafone postpaid connection from Vodafone store. I used my number for just making calls and sending SMS, which I was told are free. Now they sent me, bill of Rs. 1249.25. In the bill they have charged Rs. 649 for internet surfing & downloading & they also charged Rs. 150 for activating some Special service of Vodafone which I hadn’t activated. And when I made a call at their customer service number and discussed about my bill issue they neglect that. Company had barred my outgoing calls. And after that they use to make me calls again and again that if I won’t pay the bill amount they would suspend my Incoming service also. So I submitted my complaint against Vodafone at http://www.consumercourt.in/mobile-billing-problem/106858-vodafone-bill-payment.html. Now I am waiting for my complaint reply. Hope I get help from Consumer Court soon.
