ATT International day Pass

A la Verizon...

Use Your Domestic Plan Abroad for a Low Daily Fee

Starting Friday, AT&T is making it easier to stay connected when you travel.

With AT&T International Day PassSM, you can talk and text all you want, and use your data plan in over 100 countries, only paying for the days you use abroad.[i] Instead of being charged per minute, message, or megabyte while traveling, you‘ll pay just $10 a day per device for any 24-hour period you use your device in an International Day Pass country.

“Traveling has its own challenges. It’s great being able to use the domestic plan you’re familiar with while abroad,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Entertainment Group. “AT&T International Day Pass simplifies travelers’ lives so they can enjoy more of their favorite mobile apps when on-the-go overseas. This helps with booking lodging, catching a ride, translating, navigating, video calling, using social media and more.”

With the new AT&T International Day Pass, simply:

Add to each device one time and it’s available whenever you travel within the 100+ countries unless you remove the feature.
Use in our most popular destinations in Europe, Asia and the Caribbean – like the U.K., France, Italy, China, India, Jamaica and the Bahamas – as well as all of Central and South America.
Access your plan data and get unlimited calls within International Day Pass countries and back to the U.S., as well as unlimited texts to the world at no additional charge.
Staying connected while abroad is now simpler than ever. Simply add AT&T International Day Pass to your devices on myAT&T.

Terms from your underlying domestic plan, including Stream Saver, fees and other restrictions apply. Terms subject to change. See att.com/intldaypass for feature details.

Finally! I would prefer free like Tmobile but $10 a day is much much better than the old Passport plan.

Sounds almost exactly like Skyroam. I'm happy with my Skyroam ($8 per 24 hours of use in as many countries as you can visit in those 24 hours). Plus, it works on up to 5 devices and offers unlimited data.

Gosh, what an innovative idea. Maybe another large U.S. provider will duplicate this and offer the exact same plan!

Here's my secret hope: eventually, for competitive reasons, the major U.S. cell phone providers will allow us to roam with our domestic plans ANYWHERE in the world without added costs!

Maybe the $10/day is an incremental step in this direction!

Sorry, it was a dumb joke. I should have said "AT&T finally gets on board and copies Verizon's 2015 initiative." I do have a pal that left AT&T last year because the AT&T international plan was deficient by comparison.

What's interesting to me is that carriers seem to be converging on similar plans, similar coverage, upgrade incentives - or lack thereof. With this AT&T feature, and if the latest Sprint ad campaign ("we're 99% as good") is to be believed, I have less reason to stick with Verizon.

The major difference between this and Verizon appears to be Canada and Mexico. I believe you can get free roaming if you're on an AT&T unlimited plan, but otherwise appear to be stuck with the standard $10 day pass rate. Verizon, at least, has those countries for $2/day. Otherwise, looks largely the same.

I'm on a basic $50/month 2GB AT&T plan and their Mexico Roaming package is free. Unlimited calls/texts, 1GB free data, then $20 per additional GB.

Roaming in Mexico and Canada is free with Verizon's XL and XXL plans (link).

The fact that they are trying to charge $10 a day for countries that TMobile gives away and Verizon charge $2 a day for is crazy and not going to go unnoticed -- at least in the border regions.

This is so much better than their passport plans! I still envy T-Mobile users (their call quality where I live is so bad that it's not an option for me), but it's a definite step in the right direction.

Mexico roaming is free for the shared plan. Canada is more tricky. I got the old Roaming Canada plan because I saw a thread here saying that you could call and ask for it. It is not the same as the current Roam North America plan which includes Mexico and Canada.. the North America plan only available for Direct TV subscribers. But the CSR could add the discontinued Roam Canada plan. I asked nicely and got it added just before my Canada trip last year. Also the Roam Canada is different than the others as it does not use your shared data at home.. it just gives you like 1GB of data. So it is not as good for longer trip.

Thanks for the clarifications on Mexico and Canada. Still not completely clear, but you'd think they would at least mention the exceptions for those countries for those of us not already AT&T customers.

Just to clarify, Mexico roaming is NOT free on all current AT&T plans. It is included if you are on a 10GB per month or higher plan. It is NOT included on plans that are less than 10GB per month.
