Consult the map

Use our coverage map to check the availability and pricing of international roaming at your destination. 

We’ve topped up your peace of mind

If you go over your 200MB daily data allowance, we’ll automatically give you a 500MB Data Top-Up for $10.

It’s available for use in Eligible Countries and will remain valid for 31 days from when it was added. You can start using it each day that you exceed your daily data allowance, until you have used it all up, or this top-up expires.

Check your settings

You can adjust the data settings of each app on your device to ensure that apps aren’t uploading or refreshing automatically and eating up all of your data.

Country codes

When you want to get in touch with friends and family in another country – including Australia – you’ll need to know the country code.

When you get there

Turn on your device when you reach your destination, and ensure data roaming is switched on. Then you can:

  • Auto-connect to the local mobile network. You’ll receive an SMS from us that confirms your roaming is working, including the local pay-as-you-go rates (if your device is capable of receiving an SMS)
  • Enable your Day Pass for more cost-effective roaming. 

Usage alerts

We’ll send you SMS alerts to keep you informed of your spend and usage.

  • If you’re using a Day Pass, we’ll send you an SMS when you’ve used 50%, 85%, and 100% of your Day Pass data allowance as well as a 12-hour expiry alert 
  • If you’re using data at our pay-as-you-go rates or exceed your Day Pass allowance, we’ll send you an alert for every $100 of data used.

There is no charge for receiving these SMS alerts.
