Koodo is raising Roaming Fees by 20%

"On June 1, 2018, your International Easy Roam daily fee will increase from $10/day to $12/day", says the very small print on my most recent Koodo bill.

Don't use it. Get a local SIM card when you travel - especially in Europe, where, in most cases, you will be able to use it across the EU.

They're just aligning themselves to what Telus, Bell, & Rogers already charge. Yes, getting a local SIM will always be a cheaper option.

Agreed. Even at $10 a day it was expensive. I only use Easy Roam when my trip is to the USA and is Less than a week.

Easy Roam (and Roam like home, etc) are really only particularly useful for short trips, or trips where getting a local sim isn't as easy (I use it if I'm in the Caribbean, and want to use data off the resort on an excursion, for example).
