Verizon Wireless Travel Add-Ons
When you sign up for a Verizon Wireless plan, you benefit from the top network coverage in the country. Additionally, Verizon has some of the best cell phone plans on the market, with several different international add-ons and perks for those who have caught the travel bug.
Verizon Plans and Travel Inclusions
Many Verizon Wireless cell phone plans already come with certain travel perks, so if you’re a frequent international traveler, you may want to consider one of their unlimited data plans—these unlimited plans include:
- Mexico and Canada talk, text, and data
- Unlimited texting to 200+ countries
Verizon Travel Add-On Options
If you want to enhance your travel experience, you can add any of the following international perks to your phone plan:
- $10/day TravelPass: Unlimited talk and text and 0.5GB/day of 4G data (then reduced to 2G speeds)
- $5 Unlimited Together North America: Unlimited calls to Mexico and Canada
- $15 Unlimited Together World: Unlimited calls to 60+ countries
- $70 Monthly International Travel Plan: 100 minutes, 100 sent texts, .5GB data
- $130 Monthly International Travel Plan: 250 minutes, 1,000 sent texts, 2GB data
If you want to add a Verizon Wireless travel add-on, check out Verizon’s international trip planner tool for assistance.
Verizon TravelPass cost $10/day and only charges you on the days that you actually use your phone. It includes unlimited talk and text plus 0.5GB/day of 4G data. Once you use 0.5GB, your data is then reduced to 2G speeds, which are glacial by today’s standards. Still, it’s a good deal for anyone who is only traveling abroad for a couple of days and wants little to no connection disruption.
To add TravelPass, text “Travel” from your Verizon phone to 4004.
Unlimited Together North America
This $5/month add-on is for someone located in the U.S. who wants to call loved ones in Mexico and/or Canada. Further, you can make discounts to an additional 220+ worldwide destinations.
To add Unlimited Together North America, text “N America” to 4004.
Unlimited Together World
This $15/month travel add-on is for making calls from the U.S. to other countries. This perk includes unlimited calls to landline phones in more than 60 countries, mobile phones in over 30, and make discounted calls to 160+ other destinations.
To add Unlimited Together World, text “World” to 4004.
Monthly International Travel Plans
There are two different monthly international travel plan options offered by Verizon—the $70/month plan and the $130/month plan. Both plans can be used in more than 185 countries.
The $70 plan includes 100 minutes, 100 sent texts, and .5GB data, which isn’t very much if you’re someone who likes to stay connected. This option is pretty expensive for the meager allowances you get—it’s best for someone who needs to check in every once in a while on their trip.
The $130 plan includes 250 minutes, 1,000 sent texts, and 2GB of data. Still, despite the price tag, 2GB of data for an entire month is not very much at all. Again, this is a plan for a traveler who mostly wants to text and occasionally make some calls.
The Advantages of a Verizon Plan
Verizon is an excellent choice for anyone who wants superior network coverage and decent plan perks. Although the carrier’s unlimited plans are typically more expensive than its competitors, you can rest assured that you’ll have the best coverage.
