Go to Koodo Self Serve and follow these simple steps.

If you have a phone with a SIM card,

Step 1: Go to the Plans and Add-ons page and select Add-ons. If you do not already have Pay Per Use Intl Long Distance add-on ($0/month) in your included services or optional add-ons, add this. In addition, you will need to add International Voice Roaming ($0/month) in order to call and text, while travelling outside of Canada and the U.S.

Step 2: After you've added the above feature successfully, return to the Plans and Add-ons page and add International Data Roaming. This feature will not be available until you complete Step 1. This is a $0 add-on and will enable you to use data services while travelling abroad. Just a heads up, you’ll only need to complete this step if you want to use data while travelling. If you’re not planning to use data, you can skip this step.

If you have a phone without a SIM card, you simply need to ensure you have Pay per use international calling add on($0/month). Without this feature, you will not be able to call or text.

Once you complete these steps, you’ll be able to use your Koodo phone while travelling abroad, being charged at the pay-per-use rates below.

The usual charges i think are as below -

Call - $1.50 per min

Data mb - $5

Text - $0.60

Your work is appreciated. But it's more informative (and official) to post a Koodo link rather than trying to paraphrase and perhaps make a mistake. After all, they don't send you a special email when they change their policies and maybe leave you and other customers behind if this post is quoted several months from now.

Hi Samridhi, international roaming for CDMA phones is very limited and is not available in Germany. Your reply is fine since it's a copy/paste of our website, but it is incomplete as it's missing the country list where service is available. As per Bob's advice, posting the link to our website is better :) Thank you!

There are NO add-on's for roaming in Europe with Koodo, maybe something they should consider addressing. Strictly pay as you go.

Hi there, you may want to unlock your phone before you go and get a prepaid sim while you're there. Roaming in Europe is very expensive. You can usually find a prepaid sim store at the airport. Or some research before you leave can help too. Safe travels Gabriele :)
