Taking the telecom industry war on zero roaming charges to another level, Vodafone India has launched truly unlimited international roaming plans for its subscribers.
The only catch under these packs available as “i-RoamFREE” is the fact that these truly unlimited plans are valid only for USA, UAE, and Singapore. Subscribers travelling to other locations (47 countries) will be charged a “home-like” tariff for making and receiving calls, and using mobile data. These charges are Rs. 1/min for incoming and local outgoing calls, Rs. 15/SMS, and Rs. 1 for 1 MB data.
The plans start from Rs. 500 per day (excluding taxes) and go up to Rs. 5000 (excluding taxes) for 30 days. Kindly check the screenshot below for the rest of the plans:
