Rogers launches easier international travel packs for customers heading overseas

Rogers launches easier international travel packs for customers heading 
- International travellers can now get one pack that lets them use data, text 
and voice or a new data-only rate for $9.99 per day 
TORONTO, April 15, 2014 /CNW/ - Bon voyage! From short jaunts to long hauls, 
Rogers is making it easier for customers to use their smartphones when 
travelling internationally. Starting today, consumers and small businesses can 
get international travel packs that come with all the services they need to 
stay connected including data, talk and text, instead of buying separate 
service plans. International travellers that only want to go online with their 
smartphone or tablet now have access to a new data-only rate of $9.99 per day. 
"Our customers have told us they want simpler solutions when travelling, no 
matter where their travels may take them," said Raj Doshi, senior vice 
president, products, Rogers Communications. "With these new travel packs and a 
daily data rate, customers should feel confident they can text, get online, 
and stay connected while knowing how much their services will cost." 
International travel packs are easy to understand and come with more data A 
customer who travels to Venice to cruise the canal can choose a new 
all-inclusive travel pack for $60 to get 40 minutes of talk, 150 texts and 40 
MB of data for the month. Voice and text only packs are still available for 
those customers that don't want data. 
Buying a travel pack is also easy; customers can text "TRAVEL" to 7626 for 
free in Canada or abroad to get an international travel pack or they will 
receive a text with a link to buy a travel pack right on their phone when they 
arrive at their destination. 
Access the internet for $9.99 per day This data-only rate is great for shorter 
trips and the amount of data that comes with the rate depends on the 
international destination. If the customer is travelling to England, for 
example, $9.99 will give them access to 20 MB of data per day; letting them 
send about 400 emails, share selfies on social media, or upload reports and 
files to work on the go; or visit 80 websites, or access 20 maps. If more than 
20 MB are used before 24 hours is up, another 20 MB will be added to their 
account for $9.99. 
Always know how much data you have used Customers will receive a free text 
message when they're nearing the end of the data left on either the $9.99 
daily rate or travel pack. They can also text "USAGE" to 3330 for free to see 
how many daily data rates have been used or if they've been charged overage 
costs on their travel pack. Also, a $100 cap is put on data overage charges if 
they've purchased a travel pack, or if more than $100 worth of the $9.99 rate 
have been used.
