How do I travel internationally with Mint Mobile?

Any Mint subscribers exploring the world can stay connected with a Minternational Pass. It’s easy to purchase, easy to use and the best part? It fits in your carry-on…your phone that is, because it’s fully digital.

What is a Minternational Pass?

The Minternational Pass is Mint Mobile’s international roaming pass that includes high-speed data, talk & text in over 180 countries around the globe. You can purchase a 1-day, 3-day or 10-day Minternational Pass.

What does each Minternational Pass include? 

1-day pass: 60 mins, 60 texts & 1GB of data for $5

3-day pass: 200 mins, 200 texts & unlimited data with 3GB of high-speed data for $10

10-day pass: 500 mins, 500 texts & unlimited data with 10GB of high-speed data for $20

When should I purchase a Minternational Pass?

As long as your Mint Mobile plan was activated in the US, you can either purchase a pass before you hit the road/skies/seas or while you’re already traveling. Passes do expire 360 days after purchase, so we recommend buying yours closer to your travel date. Your account will be charged at the time of purchase.

How many passes can I buy at a time?

You can pre-purchase up to two passes at a time. Once you activate and start using one pass, you can purchase another and have up to two stored in your account while you’re using one.

Can I use a Minternational Pass anywhere?

Almost. The Minternational Pass works in over 180 countries. Be sure to check if your destination is eligible before you buy a pass. Minternational Passes can’t be used on cruises or airlines.

How do I use a Minternational Pass? 

After you’ve purchased a Minternational Pass, you can activate it in the Mint app, via the website, or by texting ACTIVATE to 6700. Once a pass is activated, you’ll have 24, 72 or 168 hours (depending on the pass) from the moment of activation to use it. You’ll also need to make sure data roaming is turned on in your phone’s settings.

What if I use all the minutes on my Minternational Pass but still have leftover data or texts? Or use all my data but still have minutes and texts?

If you use all your minutes, you can still use any remaining texts or data on your Minternational Pass. However, if you need more minutes, you’ll need to buy a new Minternational Pass. This also applies if you run out of texts or data first. Just keep in mind, when you activate a new Minternational Pass, any currently active pass expires immediately.

Does using the Mint app or accessing my account online affect my pass usage?

Nope. You can keep using the Mint app and your account online without using any data.

Does calling Mint Mobile’s Care team count towards my Minternational Pass usage? 

Not at all. Any calls to our Care team will not use any of your Minternational Pass minutes.
