How much to phone Mexico?

I have booked a trip to Mexico, but need to call the hotel directly to work out some issues we are having. The hotel lists a +011 phone number, and I understand this is a long distance number. How much will it cost me, per minute, to phone them? Is it something reasonable like 0.50c a minute, or is it unreasonable like 10$ per minute? I never know with Koodo. 

I have unlimited minutes in Canada, and I know its 1.50$ per minute when phoning the US. Other than that, not sure what else my plan allows.

Hi Caitlin,
Are you calling from Canada or from Mexico? (roaming). If you are calling from Canada:
Mexico was listed as $0.5/minute

You mentioned calling US costed you $1.5/minute. It was the roaming pay-per-use rate. You can check the pay-per-use roaming rate here:
Mexico would cost 1.5$/minute

If you decide to use your phone in Mexico (roaming) make sure you are prepare for it (add add-on if needed) and your phone is compatible with the roaming partner in Mexico.

Wow thank you so much ! This is marvellously useful ! I am calling Mexico from Canada, so based on this it would be 0.50c per minute. 

Again thank you for your time and help!

If you add "International Long Distance Saver add-on"  $3/mo, then it will be $0.05/min.

You can add this add-on through self serve, and you can remove it at end of your billing cycle.

If your call is longer then 6 minutes, then I'd definitely recommend this add-on
