Travel Pass

I'm brand new to using an Andoid phone and am about to travel to Italy for 2 weeks.  Please advise how best to use my phone to check emails given Google sends daily emails to my phone.  Will I have to pay $10 a day on Travel Pass to check emails?   What about airplane mode?  Can I check emails in airplane mode to avoid the $10 Travel Pass daily charge?   I'm thinking I should only check emails when I have access to a hotel wifi but will the Travel Pass charge occur when I turn on the phone to connect to a wifi?  I'm very concerned I'm going to get hit with $140 ($10 x 14 days) in charges because I don't know how to use my phone prudently.

Italy sounds like a wonderful time! I understand how important it is to keep in touch, as well as check email and other notifications on your phone, while you're away from home and outside the country. I can definitely assist you today. To clarify, if you're in Airplane Mode, you will be able to pick up WiFi and use data without any charges. Please keep in mind that if Airplane Mode is turned off at all, you will incur international charges. We offer Travel Pass, as well as monthly international plans, and "Pay As You Go" rates. The best option for you would depend on your usage. We have a great video that helps you get prepared for international use. It shows you how to estimate your usage, so you can decide which option is best for you. In addition, it gives you information on what to expect, as well as how to get your device ready for travel.
