AT&T has announced a new slate of international roaming plans that aim to make international roaming much simpler and more cost-effective. Previously, AT&T’s international roaming options required mixing and matching voice, messaging and data into expensive a a-la-carte add-ons to monthly service plans before departing. These new options are meant to make international roaming options much less complicated, though the AT&T Global roaming plans are still available outside of these Passport plans for roaming needs longer than 30 days or those that want data-only options.

With the new AT&T Passport plans, customers will pay a one-time monthly fee for 30 days of access to international voice minutes, messaging, and data, with the plans automatically expiring after 30 days. Each plan includes unlimited messaging and unlimited access to AT&T’s Wi-Fi hotspots in select countries around the world. The least expensive plan costs $30 and includes 120MB of data and $1-per-minute outgoing voice calls. The $60 option increases the data allotment to 300MB and cuts the per-minute cost of voice calls in half to $0.50. The $120 option increases data further to 800MB and cuts the per-minute cost of voice calls even further to $0.35. Data overages past each respective allotment are set at $.25/MB, $.20/MB and $.15/MB for each plan.
