The new passes start at $30 for a plan with 350 outgoing texts, while a $50 plan will get you 50 minutes of talk time, 150 texts and 100 MB of data. TELUS says the $50 plan would cost over $600 at pay-per-use rates, hence the savings of up to 90 percent with these new travel packs.

Another $85 option brings 100 minutes, 200 texts and 300 MB data, while a $150 plan ups it to 200 minutes, unlimited text and 500 MB data.

Customers opting into these travel passes can track their usage via the TELUS travel tracker, a web portal to bring real-time costs, which users will be prompted to link to via text message when they arrive at their destination country.

Earlier this year TELUS also introduced travel passes for Cuba.

For customers roaming worldwide, picking up a local SIM is normally the most affordable option, but if you need to keep your same cell number while abroad, these travel passes are your only option.
