Roaming In USA and Europe

I was planning to switch my mobile service to Koodo but it seems the only roaming option is Easyroam. I'm with Virgin now and I can buy a 30 day package for US 200 minutes, unlimited text and 250 mb data for $40. About $70 for Europe I think. Perfect for my needs. $7 per day is very steep if I only need to respond to a text or two or a short phone conversation. I've heard you can call in and have something like this added but have not been able to confirm. Rep this morning said only Easyroam but it wouldn't be first time one did not have (or disclose) full information. Anyone help me on this?

I did n't see those options on Virgin website, only "roam sweet roam". Can you share the link from Virgin?

A while back, some customers said you could add an add-on for US traveling through calling. However, as you already called and the rep said no, that option seemed to be unavailable.

You could also choose to use "pay per use" with Koodo (instead of easyroam) https://www.koodomobile.com/fr/easyroam

If you're leaving for a longer period, just go prepaid
I can only see it in my account. Here's a link to screenshot.

I don't think Koodo had something similar to those. If that was the one you need, you might want to say with VirginMobile for a while.

The only thing Koodo still has is a package for the US and it has to be for at least 2 months and a rep must add it.

Just get a local prepaid sim as Robert suggested. 98% of the time it will be significantly cheaper.

FYI it's 8 dollars per 24 hours in the US and 12 per 24 hours outside of the US.

For the US at least, if your usage is extremely low, you can get 100outgoijg texts for 10 dollars
