Rogers Travel Packs Get More Voice Minutes, Double Data on Select Plans [u]

Rogers has announced new updated Travel Packs for customers who roam to the USA. The company says they have doubled the data and increased voice minutes by up to one hour on select packs.

Now, we’ve simplified our Travel Packs to make it easier than ever to pick the one that’s right for you.  We’ve cut prices while more than doubling the amount of data and minutes on select packs – just in time for the busy holiday travel season.

Rogers customers can add roaming to their accounts by texting TRAVEL to 7626 (free).

The company says users will be automatically subscribed to their $7.99/day 50MB roaming pack if they travel to the USA and aren’t subscribed to a travel pack. Users can text USAGE to 3330 to check usage and will be texted usage alerts when data reaches 50%, 80% and 100% allotments.

Canadians with an unlocked iPhone have options when traveling down South, such as using Roam Mobility or a local carrier SIM card as well.

Update: Here’s clarification from Rogers via email on what changed:

Before this launch, we had three Talk & Text packs and one Talk, Text and Internet pack.  With the new offers we have two Talk & Text Packs & two Talk, Text & Internet packs – small and large options for each to make it easier for customers to choose what they need depending on how they use their phones.

With that said, we’re adding 200MB of data to a pack that used to be a Talk & Text pack only. We’ve also more than doubled data on the other pack – from 200MB to 500MB – and reduced price on both.

The Talk & Text Travel Pack with 100 minutes used to include 40 minutes. These new Travel Packs deliver more value and are in line with how customers use their phones today.
