The travel industry is open for business again and more than 60% of Canadians have said they are ready to travel this summer. With summer being the peak travel season for many destinations across the globe, there is expected to be a significant jump in both domestic and international travel. And with travel being non-existent for so many for so long, it’s no surprise that people want to share their experiences with their family and friends along the way.
Traveling is an enriching experience, but the further you travel the more difficult and expensive it can be to stay connected to others. I’m sure you have heard the horror stories of people using their mobile devices in another country and then receiving an unexpectedly large phone bill for data usage from their wireless provider upon their return. This is a result of roaming charges and not understanding how data roaming works.
What is data roaming?
Data roaming occurs when your mobile phone is outside of your provider’s coverage area. Your phone disconnects from your carrier’s network and connects to another network. Roaming allows you to continue to make calls, send texts, and use wireless data even when you’re outside of your network’s boundaries, but you are charged fees to use it. And, if you are not careful these fees can rack up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars in usage costs.
To avoid returning home from your international travels and experiencing “bill shock” it’s important to figure out your cell plan to avoid data charges abroad before you go. If you want to use data while you’re away, the first thing you should do is call your carrier and see if they offer international roaming plans.
