Travel Saver

Vodacom Travel Saver lets you roam with peace of mind in more than 180 countries.

What is Vodacom Travel Saver?

With Travel saver, you can make and receive calls for as low as R2.50 per minute and use data from as little as R2/MB for just R30 per day in selected countries (a day is midnight to 11.59pm, local time). It’s perfect if you’re taking your phone, tablet or dongle with you.

There are over 180 countries in this roaming plan and depending on where you’ll be travelling to, you’ll find your country in one of two price zones. 

How much does Travel Saver cost?

There are two Vodacom Travel Saver price zones and depending on where you are travelling to, different rates will apply. 

You’ll only be charged for the days you use your device to call, sms or access data overseas. If Travel Saver is activated but you don’t use your device, then you won’t be charged. There’s no need to deactivate the service when you return home because it will wait for your next trip – you won’t be charged in South Africa.
