Hi everyone. I will be travelling to Italy in October for a week. I often travel to the US and use a T-Mobile pay as you go sim card for that (I bought it in person in the US and go down often enough that the credit never expires). I go fairly often so it was worth the hassle of seeking out a brick and mortar t-mobile store.

This Italy trip is a 1-off, and I wonder if a roaming plan would be more convenient. I know some carriers offer truly international roaming plans that work in most of Europe, though they aren't cheap.

Does Koodo offer a plan that works in Italy?
Does the community here have any other suggestions for obtaining text/data in Italy specifically?

I am thinking a Vodafone (or similar) SIM may just end up being the best/only way to go.

Unfortunately there are no European roaming packages with Koodo.
The recommendation would be to get a local prepaid sim.

Cheers,
Thanks for clarifying Dennis. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed something in Koodo's Add-Ons page.

Thanks for the link, very helpful.
