Passport vs International Day Pass

I am trying to figure out how best to compare these 2 options: Passport vs International Day Pass

Not even sure if the Passport plan still even exists as I can't seem to find it listed on the AT&T site.

Going to Italy and trying to finalize what to do on the trip.

Thanks!

Day pass works out better/cheaper Than passport did. Passport was $70 per line with 3 gigs of data, 35¢ per minute calls, or $140 for 6 gigs. Good for 30 days. 

Passport is charged, even if you don't use it, or can't get service.  

International day pass is limited to no more than 10 charges per bill cycle even if you use it for a full bill cycle.

Primary line is charged  $10 but additional lines only pay $5

And only if you send a text message, make or receive a phone call, or use mobile data.

Day pass uses your domestic plan, just like if you were in the USA. If you have unlimited talk, text and data, it's included

So 2  using passport for 30 days:

$70 * 2 = $140 (+35¢ per minute calls) 

2 on Day pass: (same bill cycle) 

$100 + $50  =  $150. 

 The full charges of $150 on day pass assumes that you use 10 days or more of service on both of the phones that are covered.   

I would have preferred a really cheap option. The last time I used passport and traveled outside the United States you could still get a very minimal plan for $30 which was good for 30 days.

Passport was discontinued, there is nothing to compare. The day pass and pay per use rates are your only international roaming options.

Thanks for the replies and for confirming there is no longer a choice in options. 

We'll try not to use the day pass often, relying more on wifi and WhatsApp.  Otherwise it will cost a fortune

Be very careful using WhatsApp for calls. It has been known to place the call as a cellular voice call even when on WiFi. The only way to ensure that doesn’t happen is airplane mode so that your phone does not connect to a cellular network.
