We think the best value for money SIM only plan on Vodafone for May is their 120GB for £14 deal. It's on a 12‑month plan and comes with unlimited minutes and texts too:

Unlimited minutes + Unlimited texts + 0MB 120GB data (5G) = £0 £14 a month (12‑month contract)
Cashback symbol £36 cashback (automatic, no need to claim)

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 70GB for £12 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 £12 a month, you get 70GB data, plus unlimited minutes and texts:

Unlimited minutes + Unlimited texts + 0MB 70GB data (5G) = £0 £12 a month (12‑month contract)
Cashback symbol £30 cashback (automatic, no need to claim)

This isn't the very cheapest deal with 70GB data or more out now. But if you definitely need a SIM only plan that uses the Vodafone network, we think it is the best option. See the networks that beat it here:

£10 for 30GB is Vodafone's next best SIM deal in May

For people who don't need that much data, another good deal on Vodafone at the moment is their £10 SIM only plan here, which includes 30GB data instead, plus unlimited minutes and texts:

While it's good enough to be in our pick of Vodafone's best SIM only deals, other providers do still have similar plans for less, even ones that also use the Vodafone network. Here are the networks where it'd cost less:

How Vodafone’s benefits and SIM only deals stack up

Vodafone Review

Here’s what we think of VodafoneRead our full review

at simsherpa.com
(opens in new window)

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 tend to be one of the more expensive networks, even on their 24-month contracts. There are a few cheaper providers who get full access to Vodafone’s network (including 5G).

Most of their benefits only come on premium plans. Inclusive EU and worldwide roaming is only included on their most expensive deals. And their Entertainment plans give you subscriptions to entertainment services.

If you order your Vodafone SIM online you can get your package delivered the next day by DPD. This includes every SIM size for any phone. You can also join on an eSIM on Vodafone or switch to one later (here’s how).

After your SIM arrives you have 14 days to request a refund if you’re not satisfied with it. Here’s their full explanation of their returns policy.

To stop their customers racking up huge bills they can’t pay, Vodafone make you pass a credit check to join any of their SIM only contracts. If you fail this check you can instead join them on a PAYG monthly bundle.

If you’re switching to Vodafone from another network, you can bring over your old number by requesting a PAC from your old provider and giving it to Vodafone. Here’s Vodafone’s guide to keeping your number.
