For Easy Roam, if the cap is $100 per billing cycle, what if our vacation days is between 2 billing cycles? Is there any way around that? I only want to pay a max of $100..

Afraid not. Where are you going? It's usually much cheaper to get a local prepaid sim card.

If it is outside the US, you can use 5 days each billing cycle and that would total $100. If you plan om using it more often then another option, as Goran stated, is to get a local sim.

There are some reports of customer calling Koodo in the forum, asking for previous roaming addon (which are removed from selfserve). They could be easier to manage for some.

Another way is to make plan to use payperuse on few days and switch to easyroam on other

If travelling to the USA where you need roaming for several days or more, it's a no brainer to pickup a 3rd party SIM with data and voice packages for under $40. You can pick any number of these  up at a US Walmart, Fred Meyer, Best Buy, etc.

It's international vacation for more than 10 days, so we were looking to get this plan, but it won't work if it expands 2 billing cycles :(

@Christine

If you go to EU Countries (EU=European Union) you can get Local SIM card in one Country and roam freely in other EU Member Countries. Very convenient and reasonably cheap.

Your phone has to be unlocked and must have some frequencies compatible with European Network.

Christine, unless you have a money making printing press or have no appreciation of costs, a cellular plan and SIM is ridiculously cheap in Europe. 

What I would do is download the app Fongo and if you don't have call forwarding on Koodo, add it to your account. Then call forward your cell to Fongo.
