$20 International Monthly Plan
It’s easy to export a list of all the wireless numbers on your account, and it only takes a few steps in My Business.
The $20 International Monthly Plan provides data on select planes and cruise ships on your 4G GSM World device. For $20 per line, you get 50 MB. Additional data used will cost $20 per 50 MB and will be charged to the account.
Before traveling, the feature must be enabled on the mobile number in My Business or the My Verizon for Business app.
- The end user will not be able to add the $20 International Monthly Plan on select cruise ships or planes until the feature is enabled
- Any My Business user with the ability to add or remove features, such as a Primary Contact or Admin, can enable the $20 International Monthly Plan for any mobile number on the account
When the end user boards the participating cruise ship or plane, the line is sent an opt-in text message.
- The line is not charged until the $20 International Monthly Plan is added by the end user on the participating cruise ship or plane
- The end user can add the $20 International Monthly Plan by responding “Yes” to the opt-in text message
- The end user gets 50 MB of data for $20
- The end user is charged an overage rate of $20 per 50 MB
The $20 International Monthly Plan will automatically end after one month on the account. After that, if the end user wants to use data while on a participating cruise ship or plane, they will again need to respond with “Yes” to the opt-in text message.
Visit International Services and scroll to the bottom to view particpating cruise ships . Check with your airline for specific flight availability.
Enabling the feature in My Business gives the end user the ability to receive the opt-in text message once they’re on the participating cruise ship or plane.
- When boarding a participating plane or cruise ship, a text message is sent to the mobile number, asking if the service should be added.
- Confirm by responding “Yes” to the message.
- The plan only provides data while on the plane and/or cruise ship. Other International pricing options, such as TravelPass, are available while in other countries or in port
The $20 Monthly International Plan provides data while on select cruise ships and planes.
To use talk and text while on the cruise ship or plane, Pay as You Go rates (Talk: $2.99/min, Text: $0.50 / message sent $0.05 / message received) will apply.
Any My Business user with the ability to add or remove features can enable the $20 Monthly International Plan.

Being at the forefront of the move to 5G connectivity, Verizon is often referred to as one of the best carriers in the U.S. But how does the carrier compare to competitors like AT&T , T-Mobile , and newcomer Google Fi when traveling abroad?
That’s a good question, and it’s an important one to ask if you find yourself out of the country often. So in this article, we’re going to dive deep and take a look at how Verizon’s U.S. phone plans work abroad. We’ll start out by looking at the company’s international plans and their respective pricing. Then, we’ll look at the supported countries and compare the pros and cons of using Verizon abroad.
Spoiler alert: like AT&T, the international options are pretty limited on Verizon. You’ll want to study this article if you’re a current Verizon customer who’s about to travel abroad, or if you’re a traveler that’s considering a switch to Verizon.

Breaking Down Verizon’s International Data Plans
As teased in the intro, Verizon has a limited (and expensive) set of international plans. There are 3 different plans available, ranging from a monthly international data allowance to a plan that lets you use your U.S. data plan while traveling abroad.
Here’s a look at all of the available options:
All Verizon customers are automatically enrolled in pay as you go international data, texting, and calling. If you don’t enroll in another plan on this list and take your phone out of airplane mode when abroad, you’ll automatically be charged at the following rates:
- Talk: $0.99-$2.99 per minute, depending on the country
- Text: $0.50 to send, $0.05 to receive
- MMS: $0.25 to send or receive
- Data: $2.05 per megabyte
There’s no doubt that these prices are absolutely astronomical, hence why we don’t recommend relying on pay as you go international data — it can get very expensive very quickly.
For example, sending a 3 MB picture message on Facebook Messenger would cost a whopping $6.15! And since modern smartphones use data in the background to fetch email, notifications, and more, you may end up being charged just for taking your phone out of airplane mode.
Hot Tip: Thankfully, you can call Verizon to have pay as you go international data disabled on your account. We highly recommend doing this so that you can protect yourself from an astronomical bill on your next trip.
Verizon’s TravelPass plan is nearly identical to AT&T’s International Day Pass plan. This plan lets you use your U.S. data, talk, and text plan abroad for a daily fee.
This plan costs $10 per day per line, and — once enrolled — you’ll only be charged for the days you actually use your phone abroad. This means you can set the plan and forget it. Then, instead of worrying about pay as you go data, you’ll be charged a flat-rate fee for your international phone usage.
Note that you’re billed in 24-hour increments, so if you fly to Brazil and connect to data at 5 p.m. on a Monday, your single $10 fee will be valid until 5 p.m. on Tuesday. You’ll be billed for another 24-hour increment if you continue using your phone after this initial period.
Further, this plan still pulls from your U.S. data, text, and calling allowance, so make sure to keep an eye on how much you use your phone. Otherwise, you might come back home with overage fees.
You can use this plan in any of Verizon’s 185+ supported countries and if needed, you can roam in multiple countries on the same day without paying extra. Don’t worry — we’ll discuss supported countries later in the article.
Finally, you can enroll in a Verizon Monthly Travel Plan. This gives you a set amount of data, calls, and texts to use when you travel abroad. However, the amount of data, calls, and texts included with each plan is limited at best.
Here’s a look at what’s included with Verizon’s 2 Monthly Travel Plans:
If you exceed your data, talk, or text allowance, you’ll be charged at the following rates:
- $0.35 per minute of talk
- $0.05 per text message sent
- $25 per 0.5 GB of data used
Like the TravelPass, this plan works in 185+ countries and can be used across multiple countries if needed. Note that — also like TravelPass — this plan is billed per line, so multiple lines can’t share the same Monthly Travel Plan.
A handful of Verizon plans come with free data, call, and text roaming within North America. This means that when traveling within Canada or Mexico you can continue to use your phone as you would as if you were in the U.S. The plans that include this type of roaming are:
- All Unlimited plans
If you’re subscribed to one of Verizon’s other plans, you can add North American roaming for $5 per day. This works the same as the TravelPass plan we mentioned earlier — you’re charged per day, but only when you actually use your phone in Canada or Mexico.
So, there are 3 different options for international mobile data on Verizon, but which is the best for you? Here’s why you might pick 1 plan over another.
Stick With Pay as You Go Data If You
- Don’t plan on using your smartphone or will purchase a local SIM card upon arrival. In our opinion, this option is just too risky to be justified.
Subscribe to TravelPass If You
- Are only traveling for a few days at a time — $10 per day can add up quickly!
- Need access to your full data plan and U.S. phone number when traveling abroad.
- Have a data plan with a high (or unlimited) data limit.
Buy a Monthly Travel Plan If You
- Plan to travel for an extended period of time.
- Don’t need to use your phone constantly — unfortunately, the data, text, and call limits are low.
Bottom Line: Think about how much you need to use your phone when traveling and pick a plan based on that info. Note that you may be better off buying a local SIM card if you need to use your phone extensively for multiple days — this will save you money in the long-run.
Thankfully, enrolling in both the TravelPass and Monthly Travel Plan is simple.
You can enroll in TravelPass by texting “Travel” to 4004 from the phone whose line you’d like to enroll in TravelPass. Then, a new TravelPass will be added every time you use your phone abroad. We recommend doing this before your trip to avoid possible pay as you go charges. Alternatively, you can enroll using this page on the Verizon website.
Further, you can enroll in a Monthly Data Plan by going here . After you log in, you’ll be prompted to choose between the 0.5 GB or 2 GB plan. You can cancel this plan at any time by navigating to the same web page.
Like many carriers, Verizon has international coverage in most parts of Europe, Asia, and South America. However, it’s always wise to check that the country you’re visiting is covered by your carrier before you depart — otherwise, you could have a hard time finding a ride out of the airport once you land.
Verizon posts its full list of supported countries on its website. The carrier boasts that it supports “185+ countries” and while this is less than T-Mobile’s “210+ countries,” we’re unable to find any notable exclusions on the Verizon website. Every tourist destination we could think of was listed on the Verizon website, so you likely won’t have any issue connecting during your travels.
However, this could cause pose problems for those who partake in adventure travel by visiting off-the-beaten-path locations.
Pros and Cons of Verizon’s International Data Plans
There’s no doubting that Verizon isn’t the best plan for most travelers. For the most part, it offers a very limited set of expensive international plans, and none of its plans offer free international roaming like T-Mobile or Google Fi.
However, it’s still important that we run through the carrier’s international data pros and cons so that you can make an informed decision on if Verizon is right for your travel needs.
- Free international roaming within North America on most plans
- Monthly international plans include calling
- TravelPass is automatically enabled once you enroll
- Expensive monthly international plans with small data allowances
- TravelPass can get expensive on long trips
- Likewise, TravelPass pulls data from your domestic data, call, and text allowance
- Less supported countries than T-Mobile, Google Fi, and others
Being frank, we recommend that people who travel often steer clear of Verizon.
Its international data plans are too expensive to be deemed practical, so if you have the choice, we recommend checking out T-Mobile or Google Fi instead. Both of these plans offer free international roaming and more supported countries, giving you a smaller bill and more places to bring your connection.
However, we do understand why one would pick Verizon when traveling within the U.S. The carrier has industry-leading coverage at home and has been shown to offer some of the best speeds. It’s unfortunate that these perks don’t carry over to the carrier’s international coverage.
But now we want to hear from you. Do you use Verizon when traveling abroad? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
