If you’re traveling or planning to move outside of the U.S., here’s what you need to know to make sure your Prime membership comes with you.
You don’t have to miss out on the best of Prime just because you’re not at home. Here are some ways to take advantage of your membership benefits while on the road:
While traveling outside the U.S., eligible Prime members will see a “Watch While Abroad” carousel when browsing Prime Video. To start watching a title, open the video details and select Watch Now.
Note: Watch While Abroad is only available for the selection of Amazon Original titles featured in “Watch While Abroad” carousels. It is not available for other Prime titles, which can only be streamed or downloaded from within the United States and U.S. territories.
You can also find titles available to watch while traveling abroad on the Amazon website at: https://www.amazon.com/watchabroad.
To access an even broader selection of titles, another option is to download movies and TV shows for offline playback. The only real problem will be picking out what you’ll want to watch! Learn more here.
Every journey needs the right soundtrack, and you can easily download your pick of thousands of music titles and playlists from Amazon Music for offline playback on Android and iOS devices and Fire tablets. Read more on downloading music to your device before your trip.
If you want to maximize your Prime Reading benefits while abroad and save your data plan from incurring all kinds of crazy extra fees, consider making your borrows before you travel by simply downloading your books ahead of time. Of course, if you have access to a good Wi-Fi connection, you can continue to use Prime Reading the same way you would at home to access, read, borrow and return titles.
Amazon International Shipping
While you’re abroad, you can shop on Amazon from wherever you are in the world. Amazon Global ships over 45 million items to over 100 countries and regions outside the U.S. Visit Amazon International Shipping to search and browse for items that qualify for international shipping.
Note: Amazon Prime delivery benefits, such as Two-Day Delivery, apply only in the country in which you are a Prime member.
If you’re relocating, keep these tips in mind to keep everything working in tip-top shape:
If you’re moving from the United States to another country, update your home location by visiting PrimeVideo.com to make sure you have the optimal Prime Video watching experience from wherever you are. Learn more here.
Amazon Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited subscriptions will not follow you to your new address, but that’s easy to remedy. Simply cancel your plan, then sign up for those services from your new address.
If you’ve borrowed titles in Prime Reading and you relocate, the titles will be automatically returned and your credits will not be deducted. Read more about other Prime benefits/assets that may or may not transfer after a move.
