If you’re a Verizon subscriber and are planning to go to PyeongChang, South Korea for the Winter Olympics, there’s some good news for you. Verizon has announced that it’s waiving international roaming fees for customers who are going to attend the Winter Olympics. There is a catch, though, but you were probably expecting to hear that already.

Verizon is going to waive the fees for its TravelPass service if users on select qualifying plans sign up for its rewards program before January 28th. That’s how they will be able to score a waiver for their roaming fees when they’re headed to South Korea.

The Verizon Up rewards program offers subscribers with incentives such as movie rentals and gift cards for every $300 they spend with the carrier. That happens quite frequently for those who have big family plans on Verizon.

Verizon’s TravelPass service allows subscribers to take their domestic talk, text, and data allowances with them for $10 a day per line in more than 130 destinations. Verizon is going to waive the $10 fee for the month of February for those visiting South Korea.

All they have to do before leaving is sign up for the Verizon Up program by January 28th and register for TravelPass before they use their phone in South Korea next month.

Those who don’t enroll in Verizon Up will be able to take advantage of the free TravelPass in South Korea for one day on February 9th when the celebrations begin, provided that they signed up for it before they left the U.S.
