Gone are the days where you might have considered leaving your smartphone behind as you pack your bags for your next getaway. Although there may still be a perception that talking, texting and going on the internet with your phone when you’re travelling abroad – known as “roaming” – is too expensive, you know better, right? You know all about the affordable roaming options Rogers offers to help you stay connected with what matters most while enjoying your long-awaited vacation.

If you’re scratching your head right about now, it’s a good thing you came to this page.

It comes down to this: today, you can talk on your phone, send text messages and even surf the web when you’re out of town, without having to worry about surprise charges. Rogers lets you control your roaming spending – and makes it easy to do so.

Here’s what you need to know about roaming options with Rogers, plus some tips and tricks for minimizing unnecessary wireless internet use.

Surf the web while you’re away

Rogers offers Roaming Data Passes that let you use the internet affordably while you’re away. Research local events, use map apps or even check into your social networks, no matter where you are, worry-free. Read about a handful of the available options – and how to buy them >>

Talk and text to your heart’s delight

Just because you’re travelling doesn’t mean you want to limit your talking and texting. After all, a quick call or text message is a great way to check in back home and make sure everything’s OK. And what if you want to make some calls in the country you’re visiting? None of this is a problem as long as you sign up to get aTalk & Text Travel Pack  before you leave. Learn more >>

Turn off push email to save on unnecessary internet usage

Travel a lot? Get a lot of email? You can control your data usage by getting your email only when you decide you want it. How? By turning off push email sync on your smartphone. Read about exactly how to do it on an Android, iPhone, Windows Phone 8 or BlackBerry >>

Turn off apps to save battery and roaming charges

We love apps here at Connected Rogers and we know you do, too. But here’s something you might not know: some apps use up wireless internet (also known as “data”) if you don’t quit out of them – even if you aren’t actively using them. What’s more, they also use power, which can drain your battery – not great when you’re out and about. Find out how to turn apps off and on >>

Turn your roaming on when you’re away

Many smartphones have roaming turned off as a default setting. But if you want to check email or have a quick look at Facebook, you need to be able to turn your roaming back on. And when you’re done, you can easily turn roaming back off again if you don’t plan on using your wireless device further. Find out how to turn roaming off and on >>

How to purchase a roaming offer

You can purchase a roaming offer before you travel, or you can wait until you arrive at your destination and purchase the offer on your wireless device.

To purchase before you go, text TRAVEL to 7626 and click on the link in the text message that you receive back (link is free).

Or, once you’ve booked your trip, text ALERT to 4766 to sign up for a travel reminder text alert. Before you leave, you’ll receive a text message reminding you to purchase a Roaming Data Pass or Travel Pack for affordable internet, calling and texting. How handy is that?”
