From July 1st there will be a reduction in the Regulated Roaming rates across the EU. The new roaming rates are 19c ex. VAT per minute for making a call back to Ireland or anywhere in the EU and 5c ex. VAT per minute for receiving a call. An SMS sent from any EU country will cost 6c ex. VAT. Internet (data) pricing will be charged at 20c per MB.
What does it mean for Vodafone customers?
All Vodafone customers who are currently on our default Vodafone World rates will automatically avail of the new EU rates from July 1st 2014. Customers who are opted into a Roaming plan such as RED Roaming or Vodafone Passport must opt out of their current plan in order to avail of default Vodafone World rates. Customers are not required to register or contact Customer Care.
Do I have to select certain networks?
No the EU rates are applicable on all EU networks.
The following call types are included under the EU rates:
- Calls back to Ireland
- Calls within roamed country or to any other country within the EU
- Calls received
- Calls to non EU destinations are NOT included and these calls will be charged the standard roaming costs in the country of your destination. Please select the country that you are intending to travel to on the www.Vodafone/Roaming for specific rates for calling outside the EU.
What's the difference between the new EU rates and RED Roaming?
With the new EU rates you can make calls anywhere within the EU for 19c ex. VAT per minute and receive calls for 5c ex. VAT per minute. An SMS sent from any EU country will cost 6c ex. VAT. Internet (data) pricing will be charged at 20c per MB.
With our RED Roaming daily offer you have access to all the calls and texts from your home plan and 100MB of data a day for the great daily price of €2.99 a day.
For example a customer on the €55 per month, RED Business plan (includes unlimited calls and texts and 250 international minutes) travels for a week’s holiday in Spain. During the holiday they:
- Use their phone on 5 of the 7 days
- Make 60 minutes of calls home to their family in Ireland
- Make 25 minutes of calls to a friend in the UK
- Receive 25 minutes of calls
- Send 30 text messages
- Use a total 200MB of data, reading the papers online and google maps
Total Roaming charges:
EU default pricing : €72.82
RED Roaming: €14.95
Red Roaming saving: €57.87
And on RED Roaming the customer could have used even more for the same price!!
What do I do if I want to change from the EU Rates to RED Roaming?
If you'd prefer to switch to RED Roaming then freetext "RED" to 50020.
