A travel add on usually last 30 days and gives one certain minutes, texts and data for a set price and have overcharges thereunder .

Let's say you run out after one week.  Instead, can you then purchase another travel add on?

I don't see any prohibition to do so in the "fine print".

Unfortunately you can't renew =[
The add-on is good for 30 days.
You can't renew it until the 30 days are over even if you went over the allotted usage.
You will be charged overage charges.

OK.  Good to know.  I guess I can bring my wife's Koodo SIM card with me and sign up for a travel add on through her card if I happen to use up my limit.

We are going to Belize.  Any problem with signing up for a travel add on while actually in Belize by texting the activation code to Koodo?

Yes.  There is a problem.  I've never done it personally, but it seems that you activate the add-on by texting something to 5242.  These short-codes are operator-specific and need to be done while the phone is on the Koodo network.  Operators in Belize won't know what to do with a text to "5242"

No there should be no problem doing that directly there.

Here's a thread asking the same question about adding add ons twice : https://community.koodomobile.com/koo...

What you could do is activate a DIFFERENT add on then the first activated.

PS : have you considered unlocking your phone? It might be better and less expensive that way : http://prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia.co...

You're giving bad advice in this case, Robert.  Even the link you posted says the opposite of what you're saying in here.

He meant that there shouldn't be a problem adding the feature while already out of the country. Miscommunication :) That being said, there are two free features that need to be added to the account prior to leaving Canada, otherwise the phone will be unable to connect to the foreign network. These features are the Pay Per Use Intl Long Distance and  International Voice Roaming and can be added directly through your self-serve account.

Thanks for all of the info.

(Sorry about posting an answered question; searched and must have overlooked it).

Not sure what you mean about "activate a DIFFERENT add on then the first activated" (?).

My phone is unlocked but as I shall be in Belize for 3 weeks, my clients need to contact me as I have a couple of commercial real estate closings pending during that time frame.  My clients calling a local Belize number is a nonstarter.

What I meant is that you can activate the 30 day bundle (data, text, minutes) and then activate the 3 days bundle for example

Depending on the features available on your handset, you could set your clients' contact numbers to have a distinctive ring, and default all other calls to silent while you are away. That will avoid the automatic reflex of answering your phone needle$$ly. Just check your voicemail now and then.
