Verizon has an international roaming feature, TravelPass, that allows subscribers to deduct their activity from their regular monthly plan for a fee of $2 per day in Mexico and Canada and $10 per day in more than 65 other locations, including destinations in the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region. The daily fee is activated only when a subscriber uses their device to take a call, connect to a data service or send a text while in one of the covered countries. Each session extends for 24 hours, during which time usage is covered by the fee. Another session will begin and another fee will be activated when a subscriber calls, texts or uses data after the 24-hour session has expired. You can leave the service turned on at no charge so the feature will be ready to go when you are. A compatible device is required.
