Travelling With Your Smartphone WIN a Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini

As you may know my family has just returned from a road trip to South Carolina where were got on a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas. This trip was 10 days in total and had us crossing the border into the United States and also into the Caribbean.

One of the things which I knew I had to take care of was my smartphone package, there was NO way I wanted to be faced with a massive bill upon return.

Telus Travel Pass & Travel Tracker

We are Telus customers and they really make travelling with your smartphone easy, they have many plans for travelling and I used their US and Caribbean Travel Passes to make life easier.

With the Telus Travel Passes, you choose your destination and save from 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.


Knowing I had 300MB of data available in each country for the set rate is find and dandy but I had to keep track and make sure I didn’t go over. The Telus Travel Tracker is a simple way to do this.

Each time I entered a new country, I received a text message informing me of the country’s rates and providing me with the link to the Travel Tracker portal. Once I received this text, I just logged into on my browser and it kept me updated on my usage.

  1. I’d start off in the UK and then hit mainland Europe. I’d love to visit all the old villages and towns and really see the world, not the tourist presentation thereof.

  2. If I could go anywhere, honestly, I would stay in Canada. I live in Manitoba so I would love to go to the West Coast, then the East Coast and then north to NWT to see all our beautiful country!

  3. If I could go anywhere in the world, I would either got to Los Angeles or back to visit my family in Hong Kong. The last time I was back in HK was two years ago. I hope that when my daughter goes off to University, I’ll have some more time to travel. :)

  4. Dream place to go if it could be anywhere would be Fiji. More “doable” option would be Turks & Caicos

  5. I would like to go out east-PEI, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick first than hop over to Switzerland to see an old friend that head down to Australia at visit family I never seen, but heard of

  9. I would go to Hawaii, I went when I was a teen and I loved it but now it’s hard to find the money to afford to go again. I’d love to go back.

  10. I have always wanted to go to England and Scotland to visit my family as there are a lot of them over the ocean. ;-)

  11. I would go to Portugal. That way I could drive from there to Madrid and Paris easily. See the country side of those 3 countries.

  12. If I could travel anywhere, I’d go to Ireland. It looks like a beautiful place, is a part of my heritage and because I’m a sucker for accents! RRRrrrr, lol!

  13. I would go exactly where I am at this very minute… Mexico. I say that only because I’m heading to Las Vegas in 4 weeks and Newfoundland this summer. After that, my bucket list will be complete.

  14. Scotland where my family has originated from and to meet those that are distant relatives that helped me with family tree

  15. If I could travel I would go see my mom in Arizona she spends 6 months a year there and I miss her dearly but I cant travel so I just spend as much time with her as I can while she is home.

  16. I’d like to go to Hawaii again, it’s been a very long time since I have visited there. I have never been to Mexico, I bet I would enjoy that climate too!
