Please Note: From the 1st of February 2016 until the 31st of January 2018 (unless extended), with $5 Roaming enabled, the $5 Roaming daily fee will not apply while roaming in New Zealand. This means you can roam in New Zealand without any additional roaming charges for up to 90 days per calendar year.

How is the $5 daily fee charged?

We'll only charge you the $5 fee on the days you make or receive a call, send a TXT/PXT or use data in an included country.  Receiving a TXT is free and won't trigger the daily $5 fee. 

Once you've paid the $5 daily fee, you'll be able to use your plan's included value like if you were in Australia.

How is roaming charged outside of $5 Roaming countries?

What plans are eligible for $5 Roaming?

For the full list, check the $5 Roaming terms and conditions.

If you're already on a Vodafone plan, you can check if it's eligible by visiting the international roaming settings page in My Vodafone. You'll see an option to switch $5 Roaming on or off if it's eligible.

Can I use $5 Roaming with sharing?

Yes, all shareable plans can use $5 Roaming, and your inclusions will continue to be shared while using $5 Roaming.

The $5 daily fee is charged for each service that uses $5 Roaming. For example, if you have three services on your shared account and two of them use $5 Roaming on the same day, $10 in daily fees would be charged to your account.

With $5 Roaming, how much will it cost to make a call within the country I’m in? 

If your plan includes infinite standard national minutes, you can use these to call standard numbers within the country you are in.

On other eligible plans, calls to standard numbers within the country you’re in come out of your plan’s included value at the same rate as if you were calling a standard number within Australia.

With $5 Roaming, how much will it cost to make a call back to Australia?

If your plan includes infinite standard national minutes, you can use these to call standard Australian numbers.

On other eligible plans, calls to standard Australian numbers come out of your plan’s included value at the same rate as if you were calling a standard number within Australia.

I’m not on a Red plan but my plan includes infinite calls to other Vodafone Australia mobiles. Are these still infinite on $5 Roaming?

No, they’ll come out of your plan’s included value at the same rate as if you were calling a standard mobile number within Australia.

With $5 Roaming, how much will it cost to make a standard call to another country besides the country I'm in or Australia? 

It’ll be charged as an international call so you can use the international call inclusions in your plan and/or international calling add-on just as if you were making that call from Australia.  If you don’t know how international calls are charged on your plan, check your plan info online.

Note: Talk International Add-ons cannot be used with $5 Roaming.

How much will I be charged if I use up my data allowance while using $5 Roaming?

If you exceed the data allowance of your plan or any add-ons, you'll be charged for additional data the same way as you would in Australia. 
 
Note: One month of unlimited data can't be used with $5 Roaming.
