The Verizon TravelPass is a service that lets Verizon customers use their current plan’s talk, text, and data in over 185 countries around the world for a daily fee. The fee is $5 per day in Mexico and Canada and $10 per day in the other covered countries.
High-speed data applies for the first 0.5 GB per day. Data usage beyond the 0.5 GB will result in a speed reduction of 2GB. Additional high-speed data can be purchased after the first 0.5GB per day.
A 24-hour TravelPass session starts automatically when a user makes or receives a call, sends a text, or uses their data. If data roaming is enabled, that day’s TravelPass session can be started by background data, such as app updates, app refreshes (weather, fitness trackers, etc.), and syncing.
If a person travels in between multiple countries within a 24-hour period, only one day is charged. When the user returns to the United States, there is no need to cancel TravelPass.TravelPass only activates when a device is used outside the US in one of the TravelPass countries. TravelPass can remain on the user’s account for no charge and will automatically reactivate a new 24-hour session the next time the user travels abroad.
Not all countries are covered under Verizon’s TravelPass program and TravelPass is not available on cruise ships. Using a device abroad without TravelPass can cost the user high roaming charges.
The countries that are not covered by the Verizon TravelPass are:
- Aland Islands
- Equatorial Guinea
- Marshall Islands
- Sao Tome and Principe
- South Sudan
