Travel Tips Infographic2

When I went to Mexico; just last month, I took my TELUS Samsung Galaxy S4 with me.  The Galaxy S4 is extremely clear (brilliant) and therefore allows you to take some wonderful photos.  All of the pictures that I’ve shared; these past 2 months, via my blog, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram have been taken using the Samsung Galaxy S4.  The TELUS wireless service has been impeccable and completely reliable … yes, even while in Mexico!  My daughter (via Instagram) constantly posted updates for her friends to see.  The TELUS Samsung Galaxy S4 is definitely the cell for me … I can access social media easily and, as a blogger, it’s extremely important to stay connected!

Travel Tracker is a free web portal accessible via the customers’ smartphone’s web browser to help TELUS customers manage their data usage and costs in real-time while travelling to the United States or internationally, simply by visiting t.telusroam.com on any TELUS 4G device.

When a customer arrives in their destination country, they’ll receive a free text message informing them of the voice, SMS and data rates in that country, roaming options and now, a link to the Travel Tracker portal to begin tracking their usage.

The Travel Tracker portal not only makes it easy for customers to track their data usage while traveling to help avoid bill shock, but customers can also:

  •  Purchase travel passes  from the convenience of their smartphone that provide savings of 50 to 90 per cent off regular pay-per-use rates, including TELUS’ new US, Mexico and Caribbean Travel Passes which offer up to three times the value of our previous passes to these destinations;
  • Unblock their data service when they’re blocked at high thresholds of usage. TELUS customers will receive text message notifications at various levels of data usage and are blocked once the threshold has been reached to protect from high accidental data charges. Using Travel Tracker, the customer can unblock their data service to continue using if they wish;
  • Get helpful roaming information and tips
*Unfortunately, since I was on a media demo account, the Tracker didn’t work*

Travel Passes:

Last fall, TELUS enhanced our US, Mexico and Caribbean travel passes and in February introduced new Cuba travel passes for TELUS customers. TELUS’ revamped travel passes now provide even more value with a savings of 50 to 90 per cent off regular pay-per-use rates, including TELUS’ new US, Mexico, Caribbean and Cuba travel passes which offer more options at lower prices. For example, customers travelling to Cuba can get 50 text messages, 50 minutes of voice and 50 MB of data for only $40, in comparison to spending approximately $600 with pay-per-use rates.

Travel Tracker:

Staying connected with family and friends while traveling outside of Canada doesn’t have to break the bank. TELUS is helping to make it even easier with a new mobile portal called Travel Tracker.

Travel Tracker is a web portal accessible via the smartphone’s web browser while travelling outside of Canada to help TELUS customers manage their data usage and costs in real-time while travelling to the United States or internationally, simply by visiting t.telusroam.com on any TELUS 4G device

When a customer arrives in their destination country, they’ll receive a free text message informing them of the voice, SMS and data rates in that country, roaming options and a link to the Travel Tracker portal. In addition, TELUS will send a text notification right away letting customers know when their device begins to use data while roaming. This is an important new feature because many times customers are not aware that data is being used in the background through certain applications, emails, auto-updates, etc. A summary text message will be sent upon return to Canada showing data usage during their trip.

The Travel Tracker portal not only gives customers peace of mind with the ability to track their data usage while traveling to help avoid bill shock, but customers can also:

Purchase travel passes from the convenience of their smartphone that provide savings of 50 to 90 per cent off regular pay-per-use rates, including TELUS’ new US, Mexico, Cuba and Caribbean Travel Passes which offer up to three times the value of our previous passes to these destinations

Unblock their data service when they’re blocked at high thresholds of usage. TELUS customers will receive text message notifications at various levels of data usage and are blocked once the threshold has been reached to protect from high accidental data charges. Using Travel Tracker, the customer can unblock their data service to continue using if they wish.
