I have the above plan and despite trawling through the Lebara site, I am unable to ascertain which countries are included for the international minutes.

I am going to Canada in May and was hoping (probably in vain) that I could use my phone there for local calls.

If anyone can throw any light on this I'd be thankful.

    You can. Lebara sell a roaming add-on for Canada.

    Thanks for that info.  I have actually found that bit.  I was really trying to find out what countries are included in the inclusive 100 minutes for international calls.

    frankie, the list of countries included in the 100 international minutes can be accessed on the following page.  Canada is included.  However, it does state international calls whilst in the UK, as opposed to local calls whilst in Canada:

    That 5GB of data for £20 is a good deal for Canada. Mobile SIMs in Canada are very expensive compared to the UK. 

    I would also look into esims if you're phone is able to accept them.

    Nomad currently have the following 10gb esim for £24: https://www.getnomad.app/en/north-america-eSIM

    If you need to make calls, just use WhatsApp or an app like Rebtel.
