Unlock the Power of Verizon Travel Pass on Your iPhone

To use Verizon Travel Pass on an iPhone, follow these steps:

Activate Travel Pass: Open the My Verizon app on your mobile device or visit the Verizon website in the app. Tap on “Plan” or “Data” on the website, locate the “My Plan” or similar section, and look for options related to international plans or travel pass.

Choose the travel pass option that suits your needs, review the details including pricing, and follow the onscreen prompts to activate travel pass for your device. Confirm the activation and restart your device to apply the changes[1].


Enable Roaming: Go to settings, select cellular, then roaming, and make sure data and voice roaming are turned on. Remember, it may take up to three minutes for your phone to connect to local networks[3].

Use Data Roaming: Ensure that cellular data is enabled and that data roaming is turned on. A 24-hour TravelPass session starts automatically when you use your phone in a TravelPass country, such as making or answering a phone call, sending a text, or using data[5].

Manage Usage: If you’re on a monthly plan, you’ll be alerted when you hit specific thresholds of usage. All alerts are free and will not count towards the allotment provided by your travel plan[6].


Check Compatibility: It’s advisable to check the Verizon website or contact customer support for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding travel pass and its activation process. Ensure that your device is compatible with the networks in the country you are visiting[1].

Remember, TravelPass charges a daily fee for using your domestic plan allowances in more than 185 countries, and the fee is only applied for the days you use your device abroad[5].
