International Day Pass max charges

It says you will never be charged more than 10 day pass charges in each billing period.  Does that translate to $100/month/line?

My daughter is going to study in England for 4 months.  She will likely travel to many countries in continental Europe.  I'm trying to understand the options for her iPhone service.

If International Day Pass is truly capped at $100/month regardless of which countries she's in, that may be a pretty easy way to do it.

Other suggestions?

Yes but that’s $100 per bill cycle, not calendar month.  The $10 charge is only charged if she has chargeable usage. If she doesn’t make any calls, send any texts or use cellular data, there is no charge. The point here is she doesn’t necessarily need to run up 10 charges each month. If she keeps her data roaming off to prevent unintended data usage and only turns it on when she needs to use data and otherwise uses WiFi whenever possible, you may find you won’t even hit $100 each bill cycle.

Thanks for the quick answer.

So what is a "bill cycle"?  I think they are monthly, but correct me if I am wrong about that.   So I interpret this as saying if a 2 week trip includes the last week of bill cycle 1 (e.g. November) and the first week of cycle 2 (e.g. December), then that 2 week trip could cost $200 in day pass charges.  If I'm missing the point still, please clarify.

I understand the ways to not trigger the day pass, but don't feel confident that she'll be diligent enough about it.  : -/

Yes, your bill is monthly but it doesn’t normally start on the 1st. Look at a bill, it will show your bill cycle dates. 

So I interpret this as saying if a 2 week trip includes the last week of bill cycle 1 (e.g. November) and the first week of cycle 2 (e.g. December), then that 2 week trip could cost $200 in day pass charges.

Not quite. If the first week of the trip is in the last 7 days of your bill cycle, the most you will have charged on that bill cycle is 7 daily charges or $70. In your 2 week trip example, you could expect $70 on each bill for a total of $140, not $200. Remember, you are only charged on days international service is used. If you only use it 7 days in a bill cycle, you only get charged 7 days. Now if the entire 2 week trip fell into one bill cycle, the most you would get charged is $100.
