As a Viking, you can use mobile data in various countries outside the European Union with a Global Data Pass. To avoid unexpected high costs, we block the usage of mobile data outside the EU. Without a Global Data Pass it is not possible to use mobile data outside the European Union. In this article we tell you how to purchase and activate a Global Data Pass.


The pass is valid for 1 month from activation, regardless of whether you have used mobile data or not.

Avoid headaches and set a reminder to purchase your Global Data Pass on our website. Provide the start date of your trip, and 2 days before departure, you will receive a reminder from us. Easy peasy, right? ;-)

How does it work?

You can purchase the Global Data Pass for both mobile subscriptions and prepaid cards. You can choose between three options:

  • For 250 MB, you pay 10 euros.
  • For 1 GB, you pay 15 euros.
  • For 3 GB, you pay 25 euros.

Is your Global Data Pass completely depleted? No problem! You will receive a notification via SMS when you have used 80% of your bundle. When your bundle is completely used, your data usage will then be blocked again. If you would like to continue surfing, you can activate up to 6 Global Data Passes per month, per number.

All terms and conditions of the Global Data Pass can be found on our website.

Where can I use it?

The Global Data Pass is based on the destinations outside the EU most frequently chosen by our Vikings. It allows carefree use of mobile data outside the European Union, in the following countries: Albania, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, Faroe Islands, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, North Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, U.S. Virgin Islands, Ukraine, and the United States.

The Global Data Pass includes only a data bundle. Local rates apply for calls and text messages. You can find these rates on our roaming page.
Is your subscription (partially) reimbursed by your employer? As an employee, you can also purchase a Global Data Pass. This purchase is at your own expense.
