Vodafone launch Euro Traveller

Vodafone have announced the launch of a new service called Euro Traveller which is designed to reduce costs for customers roaming in Europe.

Customers have the option to pay £2.50 plus VAT per day and then any calls, texts or data use will be taken from their home bundle allowance rather than being additional charges. Incoming calls will not be charged for.

The £2.50 charge is only levied when a customer uses their handset to make a call, send a text or access data. Incoming calls and texts do not trigger the charge.

The previous data allowance (known as Data Traveller) has now been withdrawn and, unless a customer opts into the Euro Traveller service, data use in Europe will be charged at 58.05p per MB.

Vodafone passport is still operation for customers who are already use the service. Customers who are not on Passport and decide not to opt into Euro Traveller will pay 24.04ppm to make a call, 6.63ppm to receive a call and 7.4p per text.

Vodafone Data Traveller Update

Vodafone have announced that from the 19th September 2011, when you use mobile internet on your phone in 38 European countries you’ll automatically get the overseas data bundle for businesses, Vodafone Data Traveller.

Vodafone Data Traveller lets you use up to 25MB of data and mobile internet access per day for £1.66 (ex. VAT).
This will replace the old charge of 83p per MB (ex. VAT) that some of our business customers were paying, making it even better value for you to use data in Europe.

To help you keep a close eye on how much data you’ve used Vodafone will also send text messages to your phone to give you:

• a daily reminder of your mobile internet allowance
• an alert when you’ve used 80% and 100% of your daily mobile internet allowance
• an alert when you’ve used more than 25MB in a day

You don’t have to take any action to benefit from Vodafone Data Traveller. Vodafone will automatically add it your business account, for no extra charge, when you’re using data in Europe. Mobile internet access lets you browse the web on your phone, receive and send emails, run internet based apps and instant message.

Applicable countries are currently :
Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Channel Islands (Jersey, Guernsey), Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark (inc. Faroe Islands), Estonia, Finland, France, French West Indies, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy (inc.

Changes to Vodafone Data Traveller

Great News: From 1st June, Vodafone Data Traveller is improving with two updates:

  1. 25MB allowance in ALL European Countries
    Previously, the allowance was split between 5Mb and 25MB. However, we are pleased to reveal that there is a 25MB allowance in the entire European zone.
  2. 25MB allowance outside of the European Zone
    Great news for customers who travel further afield, for £5 per day, customers can receive 25MB allowance in countries outside of the European Zone.

The new allowance for outside of the European zone will be particuarly useful for iPhone users as these tend to use greater levels of data on a daily basis. Blackberry users may still benefit from using the 30 day 10MB bolt-on, please call us to find out more.

Vodafone keeping Londoners connected!

Vodafone is aiming to keep Londoners connected with a new fleet of branded taxis which for the first time will allow all passengers to recharge their phones on the move. Vodafone customers will also be able to pay for their journeys with their phones – at no extra charge – making those last minute stop-offs at the cash point a thing of the past.

Today, the first of hundreds of Vodafone-branded taxi cabs will take to the streets in one of the biggest ‘wrapping’ advertising campaigns ever seen in the capital. Their bold and colourful Union Jack design, made up of over 2000 London street names, will make them an eye-catching addition to the city as well as easy to spot for anyone who needs to charge up their phone. They will be followed next week by the first of a fleet of Vodafone-branded Heathrow Express trains.

It is all part of Vodafone’s commitment to keeping London calling. In the past few months the mobile phone company has improved the performance of well over 500 of its sites across the city and will continue to invest heavily to ensure it has the best network in the capital. Every month, Vodafone customers in London make more than 160 million calls, send over 155 million texts and download the equivalent of 16 billion emails.

Vodafone UK Chief Executive Guy Laurence said “We are committed to offering London the best possible network. We have already made hundreds of improvements to increase coverage, capacity and reliability to ensure Londoners can always stay in touch with friends and family. Now with our fantastic fleet of Union Jack cabs and their on-board chargers which anyone can use, all Londoners will be able to see our continuing commitment to the capital.”

To register to pay by mobile in any Vodafone branded taxi, Vodafone customers should call 0845 680 3409. Once registered, customers can also pay by text: Just text the word ‘Taxi’ followed by your taxi’s number and the amount you want to pay to 31255 – for example: ‘Taxi 9000 10.00’. This is a free introductory service and Vodafone customers will not be charged any service charge, nor pay for the calls or texts

Cost of calling mobiles to fall

The cost of calling mobile phones from other networks and landlines is set to become cheaper after Ofcom imposed a reduction in charges.

The regulator ruled today that termination charges – the amount mobile phone companies bill their rivals for handling calls from their networks – will fall 80% over the next four years, starting from April 1.

The big three mobile operators – O2, Vodafone and Everything Everywhere – currently add a charge between 4.1p and 4.4p to the cost of delivering a call to another network.

But this will be reduced to 2.66p next month and will fall to 0.69p by April 2014.

Ofcom said it expects landline operators to pass on the cost savings to customers and for mobile operators to offer more choice to customers.
