Global Roaming Rates

Going overseas and want to avoid big roaming bills? No worries, just purchase a Roaming add-on in your My Slingshot Mobile account and get access to inbound calling minutes, outbound calling minutes, text messages and data. Choice!

You’ll be charged at our casual rates when you use your mobile anywhere that isn’t covered by our roaming add-ons.

We don’t offer casual roaming data rates, so you’ll need to purchase a roaming pack to use mobile data.
