And, if you plan to bring your smartphone along for the ride we’ve got some news that will help make keeping in touch less costly: our new U.S and International Text Messaging Travel Packs, featuring a greater number of included text messages with a rate as low as $0.10 per sent message in the U.S. and $0.20 per sent for International. And best of all, received text messages are free!
What is it?
U.S. and International Text Messaging Travel Packs are a one-time purchase of text messages at a discounted rate for use while outside of Canada.
Travel Packs are valid for one month from the date of purchase. And, if you run out of the included text messages, you can keep on sending messages at the reduced rate provided by your Travel Pack until that month is up.
The U.S. Text Messaging Travel Pack text messages may be used all over the U.S., including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The International Text Messaging Travel Pack may be used for international text messaging excluding the U.S., Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Cuba.
What are the new rates?
Text messaging Travel Packs range in price from $12.50-$50 and can save you up to 87 per cent off Rogers regular text messaging rate outside of Canada, depending on which Travel Pack you choose.

How to Get It?
You can add a travel pack right from your phone:
- Text “SAVE” to 7626. A link will be sent to your phone to allow you to activate the pack.
- Or, select the Internet icon from your phone’s main menu to get to the Rogers Mobile Internet site, www.rogers.mobi. From there, click the My Account link, select Browse New Services, then click Travel Packs.
Also, if you frequently travel to the U.S, you may want to check out Rogers recently announced One Rate data roaming plans. For about $10 more a month than equivalent domestic plans, you can use the same data allotment in both Canada and the U.S. to check email or use your phone’s mobile internet.
