How does this work?

Purchase Voice, Data and/or Text Travel Savers for $10/month. The Travel Saver provides you discounts on the regular rates for using voice, data and/or text while travelling.

An Example

Let's imagine you are travelling to France then heading over to United Kingdom. Your total trip length is 15 days. 

  1. You purchase the International Travel Saver for Text for a month for $10. 
  2. You purchase the International Travel Saver for Voice for a month for $10.
  3. You select your destinations from the Tbaytel Roaming Rates calculator to find out the Zones for France and for United Kingdom.  (Both are in Zone 2.)

You find out that you are travelling in Zone 2. This means that each text you send while you have your International Travel Saver for Text in Zone 2 will cost 25 cents/sent message. And you know that each phone call you make will cost $1.50/minute while you have your International Travel Saver for Voice for Zone 2 .

You wonder where you can call while travelling. 

You can make a phone call to anywhere in the world although it will be at the rate listed in the table above.

Would it be expensive to use data while travelling?

With the International Travel Savers for Data, you save a lot from the regular price but data would still cost $15/MB. 

A MB (megabyte) is not a lot of data these days. A friend could email you a photo that is 1.5MB. 

Perhaps you need to use data while you are away and that is why we have the option. However, if data is not urgent, you could try looking at accessing free WIFI spots while travelling.

Can my data be blocked in zones 2, 3, 4 and 5? (I'm worried about getting charged for data while travelling internationally. 

Yes. 

Here is what Tbaytel says on their website about International Travel.

When you travel outside of Canada, your device should automatically switch to one of the wireless network providers in your new destination. If your device does not switch automatically, you will need to manually scan for any available networks. Refer to your device's user manual for details.

In order to protect our customers from excessive data roaming charges, Tbaytel blocks International Data Roaming on all HSPA postpaid wireless accounts that do not have an active International Data Saver. As of May 16, 2013, customers that do not have an active International Data Saver will have the International Data Block applied to their account. This block prevents accidental usage while travelling outside of Canada and the U.S.

Please note that data for Zone 1 (which is the USA) is NOT blocked. Be careful not to use data roaming while in the USA. See the travel bundles and rate savers for the U.S. 

Do you have to purchase the International Travel Savers for a Month (even if you won't be away for a month?

Yes. The least amount of time the International Travel Savers are sold for are 30 days.
