You may be leaving our shores, but you definitely won’t be leaving your phone behind. Stay in touch with everyone at home when you choose the Vodacom roaming option that’s right for you. You’ll get best-value, predictable rates for SMS, calls and data that won’t leave you with an unexpected bill.
Before you even pack your passport, you can check exactly what you’ll pay when roaming at your destination. Just go to the International roaming rates page on the Vodacom website, choose your price plan and destination, and it will show your network options. You can choose between networks to see which is cheapest - if possible, always choose a Vodacom/Vodafone network.
