Using iTunes Store when travelling abroad


Q: I buy my iTunes content here in Canada, but I will be going away to the Caribbean for a few months for work, can I use my Canadian iTunes card on the Canadian iTunes store to purchase music and videos while in the Caribbean?

– Kathy

A: The iTunes Store bases its international purchase restrictions on your actual billing address associated with your credit card, and not your present physical location. You should therefore not have any problems using your Canadian iTunes Store account while abroad.
