How it works

With International Day Pass®1, you can use your phone in over 210 destinations and on select international flights. You’ll be charged for each day that you use your phone. You can:

  • Use your domestic data plan to email, post on social media, use maps, convert currency, translate languages, book excursions, use mobile tickets, and more.
  • Make unlimited calls back to the U.S., to the destination you’re in, and to other countries included in International Day Pass.
  • Send unlimited texts to the world. Texts received are rated as domestic and don’t charge a daily fee.

How to get the most value

If you make a call, send a text, or use data (including background data used by apps) in any of the included destinations, you’ll be charged $12 per 24 hours.

Good to know: When traveling with your family, everyone can use International Day Pass. It’s an extra $6 for each additional line on the same account, if used the same day, unless you remove International Day Pass. 

When you don’t plan to use your phone, turn off Data Roaming in your device settings.

How to use data, talk, and text internationally

  • To use cellular data, make sure Data Roaming is turned on in your device settings.
  • To call or send a message to the U.S., dial +1 followed by the 10-digit number. The “+” sign usually appears if you press and hold the “0” key on your dial pad.
  • To call or send a message to another country, dial + (country code) followed by the local phone number.
  • Some devices have settings that automatically add the correct prefix or country code when you’re calling numbers in your contacts. For iOS, turn on Dial Assist in your device Settings.
