Features & Benefits

Interest Free Handset Repayments

You can now choose an interest free repayment period of 12, 24 or 36 months for your phone when you sign up to a new Month to Month Red Plan. The outright price of your chosen handset (as set by Vodafone at the time of purchase) will be spread in equal instalments over your chosen committment period (12, 24 or 36 months).

First Month Unlimited Data

New customers signing up to 12 and 24 month plans are eligible for one month of unlimited data. Use as much data as you like in the first month with no excess data charges. For first billing month any additional data usage within Australia will be free. If you perform a Rate Plan Change during the Data Workout Period, your eligibility ceases & additional data fees will apply. Plus, you can share data on all Red plans to create one pool of data to use in Australia.

$5 Roaming

International Roaming is automatically active on this plan. It lets you use the data, call and TXT inclusions of your plan for an extra $5 per day in eleigible countries. Plus, if you’re travelling to New Zealand, $5 Roaming is free. If you travel anywhere else in the world you will be charged Pay-As-You-Go rates. You can deactivate roaming at any time by visiting myvodafone.com.au or call 1555.

Network Satisfaction Guarantee

If you’re a new customer signing up to a plan and aren’t satisfied within the first 30 days, you can cancel. Vodafone will refund any monthly access fees and monthly handset instalments you’ve paid. Just return your device in its original packaging within 10 days of your claim, and you will only have to pay for excess usage charges, or charges for services that aren’t included in your plan.
