Vodafone customers in India can now easily activate the Vodafone iRoamFree pack and use their home number for a hassle-free experience in the overseas countries.
The packs are available at multiple affordable price points ranging from Rs 5000 for 28 days (which is effectively Rs 180 per day) to Rs. 500 for a 24 Hours usage, for those on a short visit. Both Vodafone prepaid and postpaid consumers can activate the pack through My Vodafone App or on the website www.vodafone.in/ir
Avneesh Khosla, Associate Director – Consumer Business, Vodafone India, said, “Vodafone customers have had a delightful experience with our Vodafone i-RoamFREE plans. This holiday season, we wanted to further add to the festivities that our travellers are looking forward to. We are delighted to add two popular destinations to the I-RoamFREE proposition – Thailand & New Zealand, strengthening our unlimited offering to 20 countries. Thailand is amongst the top 4 international holiday destination for Indians for business, leisure or even a weekend gateway."
"With a large Indian diaspora, New Zealand is a popular long-haul choice for Indian travellers for visiting family and for exploring the country’s natural beauty. With calls and data being completely free under the i-RoamFREE packs, customers would not have to look for alternatives and can have a completely worry-free roaming experience,” he added.
Overall, with the Vodafone i-RoamFree scheme, Vodafone is competing head to head with Bharti Airtel who is the leader in the international roaming plans department. That said, Vodafone plans are not bad though.
