I am on pre-paid $15/mth base plan with $25 add on for air minutes. I will need to call Australia often in the next few weeks. Can I add IN LD minutes on my existing plan? Thanks!

There are no international talk add-ons for prepaid. Have you considered using a VoIP like Skype over WiFi for your international calling needs?

I may need to call when there is no WiFi. I prefer not to sign up for monthly plan as I only need to call for a couple of months. Is there any other option within Koodo before I look elsewhere? Thanks!

You can call any country with Koodo prepaid, this will take 5 booster units per minute. In human language this means that with the $25 talk booster, your ​calls cost 25ct/minute :)

You can also use Skype over data on your phone. It may be cheaper than $0.25 per minute. Skype can also call landlines and cellular numbers for a low cost.
