Vodafone's best SIM only deals
Our favourite SIM only deal of the month on Vodafone
We think the best value for money SIM only plan on Vodafone for May is their 100GB for £15 deal. It's on a 12‑month plan and comes with unlimited minutes and texts too:
It's a good deal by Vodafone's standards but price-wise you can still beat this plan on other providers (even ones that still use the Vodafone network). Here are the networks offering it cheaper:
They're also offering 100GB for £16 on SIM only currently
If you don't want so much data, the next best SIM only plan on Vodafone in our opinion is their 12‑month one below. For £16 a month, you get 100GB data, plus unlimited minutes and texts:
If you're open to joining other networks than Vodafone, you can actually get a similar deal for less, even with providers whose SIMs also use the Vodafone network. See the networks that beat it here:

How Vodafone’s SIM only prices and benefits compare

As we said in our full review of the Vodafone network, we rate them highly for their fast 4G and 5G speeds and their great overall mix of coverage.
They offer SIM only deals on 1-month, 12-month and 24-month contracts. Generally the longer your contract the less you pay per month, but it’s worth comparing to get the best current overall deal.
Vodafone are one of the more expensive UK networks, and their smaller data plans aren’t very well priced. Their larger data plans are much better value, especially their 24-month deals.
A lot of their benefits are restricted to premium plans. You can get inclusive EU roaming and even inclusive worldwide roaming on certain plans. They also have pricier Entertainment plans that give you subscriptions to entertainment services.
