International vacations increase during spring and summer months. As travelers begin making preparations, they can be reassured that Sprint has their international roaming needs covered with worldwide service that’s EASY, AFFORDABLE, and WORRY-FREE.

As a frequent international traveler, I know firsthand the importance of being able to travel with confidence and stay connected while outside the U.S. This past year my travels included Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Macau, Mexico, Netherlands, and Spain. In every destination I was able to connect effortlessly with family, friends, and colleagues.

Over the past few years, Sprint has shifted the international wireless service paradigm by automatically providing customers international roaming service with no additional monthly fee, no surprise charges, and no bill shock. Customers no longer need to fear using their wireless service while traveling abroad. Customers no longer need to consider buying a SIM card for the country they are visiting. There is no need to call Customer Support. There are no complicated set-up tasks.

Here’s how it works:

  • Reach your travel destination
  • Turn on your smartphone
  • Receive destination-specific text Welcome Messages from Sprint detailing available services and rates
  • These messages ensure transparency and help each traveler manage use and cost accordingly. No surprises. No bill shock
  • Enjoy your international service – no complicated steps required!

Sprint Global Roaming features the industry’s largest low-cost service area, more than 185 featured destinations. Customers enjoy a consistent experience with free text, free basic data, and calls from only 20 cents per minute.

If customers need high-speed data while traveling abroad, they can select $5/day or $25/week passes on-the-fly directly from their smartphone with just a few simple clicks. No advanced planning is required and no account log-in is necessary. And Sprint high-speed data includes 4G/LTE where more than 95 percent of customers use data.

Sprint around the world! You’re covered in popular places like Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, and throughout the Americas. You can roam Europe visiting France, Italy, Spain and Russia (World Cup 2018 anyone?). Visit exotic destinations like China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam. Explore more of Africa across Kenya, Namibia, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. And confidently journey to faraway places like Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and Japan.
