The mobile operator is now offering a special roaming rate of €75 a month to business users, with a 100MB data allowance. Vodafone is also doubling the countries offering its flat rate, unlimited usage, domestic data tariff.
The Monthly Travel Tariff is tailored to suit the needs of frequent business travellers by charging €75 per month (£50 for Vodafone UK customers) to send or receive up to 100 MB of data when using the Vodafone Mobile Connect service on participating Vodafone networks.
The Vodafone Mobile Connect Monthly Travel Tariff will be made available to Vodafone customers in Greece, Italy and Portugal in June, followed closely by Germany and the UK in July. The tariff will also be made available to Vodafone customers in Hungary, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden in due course. The rate is applicable when these customers travel to France (SFR), Australia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
With 3G data rates of up to 384kbps, the Vodafone Mobile Connect 3G datacard enables Vodafone’s business customers to access usual office applications like e-mail, calendar and the Internet.
Vodafone is also extending its domestic, flat rate data tariffs with unlimited usage for €50-€99 per month depending on country. Vodafone has already successfully launched the new bundles in a number of its European markets (Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Portugal and Sweden) and following positive customer feedback, is now rolling out the unlimited data pricing model across the rest of Europe. The new Vodafone Mobile Connect domestic data usage bundles is available from June in Greece, Ireland, Italy, and Spain followed by the United Kingdom in July.
The Vodafone Mobile Connect domestic data tariff is subject to a fair usage policy, with a maximum limit of 1GB per month (excluding Vodafone Italy and Vodafone Germany, where a limit of 500 MB applies).
