Hi ,

I will be travelling from UK to Vancouver on a work visa. I have excellent credit history in the UK but have Zero history in Canada. How can I buy a plan from Koodo ? is there some way like putting in extra money like 100 dollars or something. Over here in UK that's what they do ask for some extra money to put in the  account before they can offer a sim so wondering how it works in Canada. Please reply.

Hi Zoh,

You should sign up for a prepaid account. All you'd have to do is go to a Koodo kiosk and purchase a prepaid sim from 20$. Then you sign up yourself on the website. You'll even get the 20$ back as credit on your account. No credit check is performed for prepaid.

Welcome to an awesome year in Canada Zoh! Not sure where in Vancouver you are staying but you can find a number of shops that sell our services. Here are a few:
