You can set up International Roaming in a few simple steps before you go:

If you're a Pre-Paid customer, your phone is already activated for International Roaming.

If you have previously turned this off you can contact us to switch it back on.

  1. Make sure you can roam where you’re going
    • Check if International Roaming is available in the countries you’re visiting by typing them into ‘Find a destination’ on our Accessibility map.
    • If you’re visiting multiple countries, you can add them to our itinerary builder and see a summary of all your international roaming charges for each destination.
      You can even take a screenshot or print it off for reference later.
  2. Buy an International Roaming Browse Plus Pack
    • If you’ve got a Pre-Paid service, your international data usage will automatically come off your ‘Recharge Credit’.
    • An International Roaming Browse Plus Pack gives you a set amount of data to use in selected countries for 30 days. It’s a cheaper way to roam than just using your recharge credit.
      Just choose the Pack value you want, and follow the steps below to add it to your Pre-Paid service.

To get an International Roaming Browse Plus Pack:

  1. Make sure you have enough Recharge Credit or Plus Credit to buy the Pack you want
  2. On the phone or tablet you want to set up, open the browser and type m.telstra.com
  3. Scroll down the ‘My Pre-Paid Home’ page and select ‘Buy extras’
  4. From the list, select ‘International Roaming Browse Plus Pack’
  5. Select your preferred pack value
  6. Select ‘Confirm’ to finalise your Plus Pack purchase.
