General Information
  1. Can I use my device outside the US?

    It depends on your device.

    1. World Devices: These devices can be used in the US and in more than 220 other countries. In addition to CDMA, they’re built with 1 or more of the following technologies:
      Visit our World Devices page to find a device that works internationally.

    2. Non-World (CDMA only) devices: These devices are designed to use network technology available only in the US, Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands. They won’t work in other countries.

    Visit our Trip Planner to determine if your phone will work in a specific county and to get more information about coverage and pricing options.

    Before you travel, make sure your device's roaming settings are turned on. If they're off, you may not be able to use Verizon data or voice services internationally. To learn how to turn on roaming see How do I get my World smartphone ready to use outside the US?

    Note: If you have the My Verizon app, use International Ready Check to see if your device is compatible with a specific country or cruise ship.



  2. Can I use a Verizon Wireless prepaid phone when I travel outside the US?

    Prepaid phones have limited roaming capability. Visit the Prepaid International Roaming page for more information.

    Note: If your smartphone can use Wi-Fi Calling and the feature is turned on, you can call from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. Wi-Fi calls to US phone numbers are free, even while traveling internationally.



  3. Where can I view my coverage for my travel destination?

    Your coverage may vary by device. Visit our Trip Planner for device-specific coverage maps. Just tell us where you're going and what device you're taking. Trip Planner shows you the best option for your trip and a link to the coverage map.



  4. What data speeds can I expect from my 4G LTE device while traveling outside the US?

    4G LTE World Devices are capable of roaming at 4G LTE speeds where available. In other countries, data service is on our roaming partner's GSM network at 3G/2G speeds.

    If you're on the new Verizon Plan Unlimited, 4G data speeds apply for the first 500 MB/day with reduced speeds thereafter. Learn more about the new Verizon Plan Unlimited.

    Notes:

    • Visit our Trip Planner to determine if your phone is capable of 4G LTE international travel and to find more information about coverage and pricing.

  7. How do I get my World smartphone ready to use outside the US?

    In order to use your World Device outside the US, you must:

    • Be a customer with 90 days of good account standing in order to use a monthly international plan or a pay as you go plan. To add TravelPass you're not required to have service for 90 days or have good account standing.

    • Add an international travel plan to your account, unless you have TravelPass. Add TravelPass to your account at any time and you'll only be charged the daily fee for the days you use your device while traveling in a qualified country.

      Before traveling with your World Device, visit our Trip Planner to change your international plan. You can also use Trip Planner to find out if your device will work where you're going, get current rates and see dialing information for the country you'll be in.

    • Make sure your device's roaming settings are turned on. If they're off, you may not be able to use Verizon data or voice services internationally. To turn on roaming:
      • iOS: Go to Settings, Cellular, and turn on Voice and Data roaming.
      • Android™: Steps will vary by device, however, some devices may automatically prompt you to allow global data once you arrive to your destination.


  8. How do I add an international travel plan to my device?

    You can add an international travel plan online through the My International Usage and Services page in My Verizon or with the My Verizon app. Before you leave, visit our Trip Planner page for help picking the right plan for your travel needs.

    Note: If you have multiple devices on your account, you'll see a separate dropdown for each device. Use these dropdowns to select unique options for each device.

If you're on the new Verizon Plan Unlimited, 4G data speeds apply for the first 500 MB/day with reduced speeds thereafter. The daily charge only applies on days you use your service outside of the US, Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands.

    Get more plan flexibility and international options with the new Verizon Plan Unlimited. The new Verizon Plan Unlimited gives you unlimited calling to Mexico and Canada. Plus you can take your domestic talk, text and data* allowances with you to Mexico and Canada at no additional charge.

    *4G data speeds apply for the first 500 MB/day with reduced speeds thereafter. If more than 50% of your talk, text or data usage in a 60-day period is in Canada or Mexico, use of those services in those countries may be removed or limited.



  2. How do I get the TravelPass option?

    You can add TravelPass anytime through the My International Usage and Services page in My Verizon. Before leaving, visit our Trip Planner to find out if TravelPass meets your travel needs.



  3. Which countries are covered with TravelPass?

    TravelPass is available in more than 100 countries. Visit our TravelPass countries page for more information.



  4. What countries can I call with TravelPass while traveling outside of the US, Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands?

    If you're in a TravelPass country, then you can use TravelPass to call phone numbers within the country you're in or call back to the US. You'll need to add the International Services Enabled feature to your account in My Verizon if you plan to call countries other than the US, the country you're in or plan to travel to a country not covered by TravelPass.

    If you call a country other than the US or the country you're visiting with TravelPass, you'll be charged the international rate for that country. For international rates, visit our International Service Options (while in the US) page.



  5. What devices are eligible for TravelPass?

    TravelPass is available on 4G LTE World Devices, including smartphones, tablets, Mobile Hotspots, Verizon Jetpacks and USB modems. Please visit our Trip Planner for more information.

    Note: If you have the My Verizon app installed on your device, you can also check its eligibility using International Ready Check.



  6. How will I be charged if I travel to a country that's not included in TravelPass?

    If you have TravelPass but go to a country that isn't covered, Pay as You Go Pricing applies. If you're traveling to a country covered in our Preferred Bundle plan, you can also add that Preferred Bundle to your line. The Preferred Bundle pricing will then apply when traveling to countries not covered by TravelPass. Please visit our Trip Planner for more information, options and pricing.



  7. When am I charged for TravelPass?

    When you arrive in a country covered with TravelPass and turn on your device, you'll receive an international welcome text message text. Your 24-hour access to TravelPass won't begin until you make or receive a phone call, send a text or use data. Shortly before your 24-hour session ends, you'll receive a text letting you know TravelPass is almost up. If you stop using your device before your 24-hour session ends, you won't be charged again until the next time you use your device internationally. That might be later the next day, next month or even next year.



  8. How will I be charged if I travel to multiple countries covered by TravelPass?

    You're only charged 1 daily fee per 24 hours for TravelPass, even if you travel within multiple covered countries.



  9. What do I need to do if I don't want to be charged another daily fee for TravelPass?

    If you don't want to be charged for another daily fee for TravelPass, stop using your device before your 24-hour TravelPass expires. We recommend that you turn off your device's roaming setting or place your device in Airplane Mode to prevent it from accidentally triggering a TravelPass charge.



  10. Do I have to opt-in daily to use TravelPass?

    No, you don't need to opt-in daily. You'll start another 24-hour session only if you make or receive a phone call, send a text or use data. Shortly before your 24-hour session ends, you'll receive a text letting you know your TravelPass is almost up. If you stop using your device before your 24-hour session ends, you won't be charged again. If you continue to use your device, you'll be charged another daily fee and get another 24-hour session.



  11. Do I need to remove TravelPass when I return back to the US?

    No, you don't need to remove TravelPass when you return to the US. TravelPass only triggers a daily charge when you use your device while traveling outside the US in a qualifying TravelPass country.



  12. I've returned home from my trip, but I just received a message about TravelPass. What does it mean?

    When using TravelPass internationally, you'll receive the following text when an hour remains on your daily session:

    "Your daily TravelPass session will finish in 1 hour. After that, if you're still abroad and use talk, text or data, another daily session will be triggered."

    If you're out of the coverage area or have your device turned off, you may receive the alert when you've arrived home. If you're no longer abroad, the TravelPass session won't be triggered.
