If you have an international long distance calling or texting add-on, the rates of your add-on only apply when making international long distance calls or texts from Canada.
While in China, Hong Kong or Macau, calls to phone numbers that are outside of Canada and these countries are not included and will be billed at the roaming pay-per-use rate in China, Hong Kong or Macau. See the applicable pay-per-use rate on telus.com/travel. You can text numbers to any destination in the world for no extra charge, but texting premium and subscription numbers are not included.

Using Easy Roam internationally with a Canada-China plan
As of February 19th, if you don’t have Easy Roam, you can text TRAVEL to 7626 using the mobile device on which you wish to add the service. Unfortunately, at this time you will not be able to add Easy Roam using My Account if you have a Canada-China plan.
Since your Canada-China rate plan covers all your usage while in China, Hong Kong or Macau, the $12 per day Easy Roam rate for China does not apply.
When using Easy Roam in an eligible international destination outside of China, Hong Kong or Macau, you can take advantage of the $12 per day rate to use your current plan’s minutes, text and data while travelling. Calls made to phone numbers outside Canada and the destination in which you are currently located are charged the pay-per-use rate for the destination from which the call was made. You can search the destination's specifications at telus.com/travel to determine the pay-per-use rate.
