Vodafone India today launched its new international roaming packs for both its pre-paid and post-paid customers. The new roaming packs offer a discount of 95 % on data charges and up to 78 % on voice calls on outgoing local and international calls compared to existing rates.
When it comes to coverage, the company said that the roaming packs will cover 53 countries including the UK, the US, the UAE, Thailand and Singapore.
However, there is a bit of a difference in the pricing of the pack between the post-paid subscribers and the pre-paid users. To be precise, the packs are available for Rs. 599 and Rs. 1,499 for post-paid customers and come with a validity of 10 and 30 days, respectively. While the pre-paid customers can avail themselves the same offer through recharge vouchers of Rs. 673 and Rs. 1,684, respectively, for the same validity period.
The company also said that the customers can access data for Rs 30 per MB on international roaming with the new packs. However, the local outgoing calls can be made for Rs 15 for a minute as compared to Rs 70 for a minute. International outgoing calls can be made for Rs 30 per minute and incoming calls will also be charged for Rs 30/minute.
Moreover, for the list of applicable countries and networks, users can SMS Packcountry to 111. To activate these pack, post-paid users can SMS ACTIR1 for the Rs. 599 pack and ACTIR2 for the Rs. 1,499 pack.
"With these new international roaming packs, we are offering unmatched value, convenience and huge savings to our customer segment that travels abroad for both leisure and business," Vodafone India Chief Commercial Officer Vivek Mathur said.
