Vodafone Ghana has slashed its price barriers to international roaming services. It noted that staying connected to family and loved ones while travelling has never been more convenient and affordable, but Vodafone Ghana?s new roaming service has given the opportunity to subscribers.?

Vodafone has, in a press release indicated that Pre-paid & Postpaid customers travelling to the UK can make calls and send SMS at standard local UK ?rates, which translates into over 100% ?reduction on roaming charges in the UK. “Customers can also top up their airtime using widely available Vodafone recharge cards in any Paypal shop or top up online at www.ezetop.com.”

“Postpaid & Pre-paid Vodafone customers are currently enjoying Africa roaming, a product which allows travellers in Vodafone partner countries in Kenya, South Africa, Lesotho, Mozambique, Tanzania and Congo, to receive calls and texts free of charge and make calls at reduced rates.”

Sharing the rationale for this offer, Tara Squire, Head of Consumer Marketing at Vodafone Ghana noted that ?We now live in a global village where people are travelling around Africa and the rest of the world more than ever, either for work or for pleasure.? We want to introduce simplicity in their travel and help them stay connected by tailoring our products to their communications needs.? We started this with the ?know before you go? bundle which allowed customers to control their spending; we have now taken it one step further by making roaming even more convenient with our localised pricing and top up and with our Africa roaming product.?

He further added that ?we want our customers to be confident in the knowledge that they can get the same great value for money from us when they travel as using a local sim card.? Local pricing is available in the UK and it is our intention to extend it to other countries very soon.?

“Prepaid customers travelling to the UK should dial *125*40# to opt-in and *125*41# to opt-out of the local pricing offer.? Postpaid customers can call 080010000 to opt-in. Travellers in Africa automatically qualify for the reduced roaming rates automatically once they activate their sim for international roaming by calling 100 or 08001000 to first activate international roaming.”
