General Information

  1. What is TravelPass and how much does it cost?

    TravelPass lets you use your domestic talk, text and data allowances while traveling outside the US in more than 185 countries for a low daily rate.

    Instead of paying per minute, message or MB, you'll be charged a flat rate with TravelPass. Your usage will be deducted from your domestic plan allowances just like when you’re in the US. The daily rate is:

    • $5/day in Mexico and Canada (included for no additional charge with Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, Above Unlimited and the new Verizon Plan Unlimited)

    • $10/day in other countries where TravelPass is available (Above Unlimited includes 5 TravelPass days per month for no additional charge).

    The daily charge only applies on days you use your service outside of the US, Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands.

    Note: TravelPass isn't available on cruise ships and non-covered countries. Visit our TravelPass countries page for more information.

    *High speed data applies for the first 0.5 GB/day with 2G 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.

  3. How does TravelPass work and when will I be charged for it?

    When you arrive in a TravelPass country and turn on your device, you'll receive an international welcome text message. Your 24-hour access to TravelPass won't begin until you make a phone call, send a text or use data, including background data.

    Within 2 hours of triggering TravelPass, you'll receive a text message letting you know when your 24-hour session will end. If you continue to use your device after the 24-hour session, you'll be charged another daily fee and get another 24-hour session.

    Note: If you have Above Unlimited, TravelPass charges will begin on day 6 of your trip. Your first 5 TravelPass 24-hour sessions are included with your plan.

    Stop using your device before your 24-hour session ends to avoid being charged for another daily fee for TravelPass. We also recommend turning off your device roaming setting or placing the device in Airplane Mode to prevent accidental charges. You won't be charged again until the next time you use your device internationally.

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

  4. Do I have to opt-in every day to use TravelPass?

    No, you don't need to opt-in every day. TravelPass remains on your account until you remove it. A new 24-hour session automatically starts if you make a phone call, send a text or use data after your previous 24-hr session ends.

  5. I'm traveling outside of the US, Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands. Which countries can I call with TravelPass?

    If you're in a TravelPass country, you can use TravelPass to call phone numbers within the country you're in, or US numbers too.

    If you plan to call countries other than the US or the country you're in, or you plan to travel to a country not covered by TravelPass, you’ll need to add international service to your account in My Verizon or the My Verizon app.

    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.

  6. Which devices are eligible for TravelPass?

    TravelPass is available on 4G World Devices, including smartphones, tablets, Mobile Hotspots, Verizon Jetpacks and USB modems.

    To check your device's eligibility, visit our Trip Planner, or you can check it on your device using the My Verizon app:

    1. Tap the 3-line navigation menu icon in the top-left corner of your screen.
    2. Tap Account.
    3. Tap My Plan.
    4. Tap the International tab.
    5. Tap Check if my device will work outside of the US.
  7. I reached the daily high speed data limit on TravelPass. How do I get more high speed data?

    You have the option to purchase more high speed data if you use your daily allowance on TravelPass, or if you have an unlimited plan with Mexico and Canada included. Here's how it works.

    • We'll send you a text message with an offer for an additional 0.5 GB of high speed data to use during the same 24-hour session.
      • The fee is $5 in Mexico and Canada and $10 in all other TravelPass countries.
    • If you respond yes to this text message, you'll receive another 0.5 GB of high speed data to use in the same 24-hour session. You can purchase additional 0.5 GB of high speed data multiple times during a single 24-hour session.
    • Any purchased high speed data is limited to a single 24-hour session and does not roll over.

    Additional high speed data sessions are not available in Cyprus, Gibraltar and Greenland.

  8. 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 by it, then Pay as You Go Pricing applies.

    When traveling near the border of 2 countries, your wireless device may connect to a neighboring country's network, particularly if that network is transmitting a stronger signal than the network of the country you're in. If your device connects to a new network, we'll send you a free welcome text message stating the rates that apply while using that network.

    Please visit our Trip Planner for more information, plan options and pricing.

  9. Do I need to cancel TravelPass when I return to the US?

    No, you don't need to cancel 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. So you can leave it on your account for no charge, and it will be ready to activate a new 24-hr session the next time you travel abroad.

  10. 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, you won't be charged for a TravelPass session.

  11. I've used TravelPass before. How can I check to make sure TravelPass is still on my line?

    TravelPass will remain on your line, even after you return to the US, unless you manually remove it. You won't be charged for TravelPass until you travel to another qualifying country and use your phone, which will initiate a 24-hr TravelPass session.

    To verify that you still have TravelPass on your line: Go to the International Usage & Services page in My Verizon. You'll see an overview of all the lines with international plans on your account and which plan each line has.

  12. If I travel to multiple countries in the same day, how will I be charged for TravelPass?

    You can travel to multiple countries and time zones during the same 24-hr TravelPass session.

    So if you travel to 2 countries within a single 24-hr session, or have a layover in a different country on your way to your final destination, you'll still only be charged for 1 session.
