AT&T users who travel abroad have two options for international talk, text, and data: the AT&T International Day Pass and the AT&T Passport. The availability of these programs depends on the country the user is in, as some countries are only covered by one, and others are covered by both.
International Day Pass
The AT&T International Day Pass allows users abroad to use the data from their wireless plan and get unlimited talk and text. For $10 per day per device, users get coverage for 24 hours that includes access to their data pulled from their domestic data plan, unlimited texts to the world, unlimited calls to the United States, and unlimited calls to over 100 more destinations. Automatic updates, background data, and app refreshes will trigger the daily fee and 24-hour session.
To be eligible for an International Day Pass, the user must have a compatible device with an eligible domestic postpaid wireless plan. The Day Pass starts when the user uses data, sends a text, or makes or receives a phone call while abroad.
The AT&T Passport is a separate plan from a user’s regular cellular plan that is a good option for those on extended trips abroad. The Passport allows for unlimited texts, 2GB or 6GB of data, and $0.35 per minute for calls. Passport is currently available in over 200 countries around the world. The Passport with 2GB of data is $70 per month per device and the 6GB plan costs $140 per month per device.
To be eligible for the Passport, the user must have a compatible device with an eligible domestic postpaid wireless service. Passport plans have a one-time charge or monthly recurring charge that applies to each device. One-time charge packages are effective for 30 days beginning on the specified date and expire automatically. Users also have the option to opt-in fo a monthly recurring version of the AT&T Passport that requires a minimum two-month commitment.
AT&T Passport is available in more countries than the International Day Pass and is available in any country where the International Day Pass is available.
