Vodacom customers travelling to the United Kingdom (UK) are set to enjoy savings of up to 100% on international roaming. These savings, which will be applicable to Vodacom Prepaid, Contract and Top Up customers, will be available from 20 July to 16 September 2012.
This promotion will include 60% savings for local calls in the UK. Customers will also save 76% on calls to South Africa, 45% on SMS messages and 71% on data roaming.
During the promotional period, customers will also save 100% on calls received from any network since they will not be charged for receiving calls.
Promotional rates will apply on Vodafone only and standard rates will apply to all other networks. “Customers should therefore ensure that they are roaming on the Vodafone network and if necessary, manually select Vodafone UK as the preferred network provider on their handset,” Vodacom said in a press statement.
The reduced roaming rates will be available to all Vodacom customers by default; no opt-in will be required.
