Plan for your upcoming trip outside the US

When you get a Gmail message about an international flight, Google Fi automatically checks your mobile coverage. You get a notification in your Fi app that lets you know if you're covered. For service costs, check international rates and coverage.

Learn about Google Fi service outside the US with a step-by-step guide.

  1. Open the Google Fi app Project Fi.
  2. Go to Account.
  3. Under "Account Settings," tap Notifications.

Tips to ensure continued service abroad

Learn more about international use

Choose a Fi plan when you travel internationally
The Simply Unlimited plan includes roaming in Canada and Mexico. If you plan to travel to other countries/regions, we recommend the Flexible or Unlimited Plus plan. Learn more about Fi plans and international coverage.
International Wi-Fi calling & hotspots on iPhones

Make sure that your iPhone is running iOS 15.4 and up. You must also turn on Wi-Fi calling:

  1. On your iPhone, go to device Settings.
  2. Tap Cellular and then Wi-Fi Calling.
  3. Turn on Wi-Fi Calling.
Check Wi-Fi calling availability
To make sure the call is done entirely on Wi-Fi, turn on Airplane mode and then Wi-Fi. Before you travel abroad, confirm if the country/region you plan to go to blocks Wi-Fi calls.
Check for international usage charges not covered by your plan
  • To find international charges in the Fi app, go to the Billing tab. Then, under "International Calls," tap View Details.
  • International charges can take up to 60 days to show in your account.
International usage & Fi service loss
Fi's Terms of Service require you to use our service primarily in the United States (territories not included) and aren’t intended for extended international use. Your usage must be primarily in the United States (territories not included) over any given 90 day period. We grant international exceptions for military and State Department employees who serve abroad through verification of government status.
