Vodacom now offers free legal advice on some of its new contracts – and you can use it to help get out of jail

Vodacom launched its legal advice service at the end of 2018, with the insurance product now available to purchase separately or as part of a new contract.

Currently, it has three products on offer (ranging from R109 – R239 per month) with the option to add extended family for an additional R49.43 a month.

The litigation cover ranges from R110,000 – R240,000 a year with benefits including unopposed/opposed divorce matters, accidental death benefits and even bail money should you be arrested.

Vodacom also offers mediation services in the event that you wish to resolve a dispute outside of the courtroom (i.e. not through litigation).

Growing business

This is not the first insurance-based service that Vodacom has launched – it also also provides funeral and device cover.

This diversification is likely to be important for the company going forward, with a Vodacom spokesperson stating that the legal service has already acquired approximately 35,000 customers since launch.

“The service provides customers with a 24-hour telephonic legal advice, manned by qualified and experienced in-house attorneys for guidance and information on all legal matters,” the spokesperson said.

“The in-house attorneys provide assistance across a broad scope of legal concerns and situations 24/7 throughout the year including public holidays.”

He said that the legal service spectrum covers the following:

  • Marriage mediation;
  • Family mediation;
  • Debt advice;
  • Contractual matters;
  • Criminal matters;
  • Labour matters.

“In addition, the service also includes referrals, meaning in an event a legal matter cannot be resolved through advice, a client will be referred to attorneys at a discounted rate,” he said.

“Customers also have access to a Legal Library of useful standard documentation. The library provides customers with free legal agreements, such as purchase, sale, lease, prenuptial, employment contracts, etc.”
