What is a vacation suspension?

It is the ability to suspend your mobility services temporarily while you are away.


Am I eligible for vacation suspension?

All customers on a monthly plan can ask for a vacation suspension.


What if I’m in a contract?

No problem! Ask for your service to be put on a vacation suspend and it will not extend your contract for the period your service is on hold.


How long can I put my service on vacation suspension?

You can put your plan on hold for a minimum of one month and a maximum of six months once per year.


Is there a charge?

Yes. Monthly charges are $30 + Monthly Easy Payment charge (if applicable).
Note: Customers with a device balance (activation or renewal prior July 3, 2019) are required to pay off their device balance.


What happens to my shared data?

If you have a Your Choice plan and are sharing data with a family member, the data add-on will be transferred to another line that is remaining active.


What happens if I come back early?

Should you decide to shorten your stay, simply contact us when you return and your service will be reactivated within minutes.


How to suspend service?

Give us a call at 1-866-558-2273 or *611 on your TELUS mobile phone. If you prefer to contact us online go to from a computer browser and we’ll help you out there.
