Your Mobile service on a trip: manage your roaming options as you see fit

Responsable éditoriale

Attention all globetrotters! You no longer have to worry about texting or calling your friends, or using your data while traveling abroad. Videotron’s got you covered with the Daily Traveller Pass.

 

This option, which you can manage entirely as you see fit via the Customer Centre, allows you to use your Mobile service while traveling abroad.

 

How much does it cost?

 

  • $6 per day while traveling in the US.
  • $10 a day while traveling to one of the 102 eligible countries listed here.

How does it work?

 

The Daily Traveller Pass can be activated with the click of a button, directly via your online Customer Centre or the User Centre + App. When you activate the Pass, all the services included in your Mobile plan become accessible in the US or internationally. Everywhere you go, it’s like you’re at home!

 

The Pass is available for all our Unlimited Voice and Text Messaging plans that include data. And, if your plan already covers the US, the Pass will automatically remain inactive when you’re traveling there.

 

Activation of the Daily Traveller Pass is done manually: you decide when you want to activate it or not! You can even leave it on and it will automatically take effect next time you’re traveling outside of Canada.

 

Eligible destinations are listed here

 

In detail…  

 

Calls made in the country visited, towards Canada, are included. If you call another destination, the fees incurred will be billed to you in accordance with the rates listed on the Videotron website.

 

Text messages sent from one of the countries covered by the Pass are included. You can receive text messages from any country in the world—it’s covered by the Pass!

 

Data downloaded and sent from one of the countries covered by the Pass is included. Just remember to respect the data allowance included in your plan! If you exceed your monthly data limit, you will be billed exactly as if you were at home. But don’t panic: you can always purchase an On-Demand Data Add-on by visiting the Customer Centre or logging on to the User Centre + App (and we’ll tell you how right here!). It’s simple, quick and you’re in control!
