Why You Should Use an existing embedded eSIM Card the Next Time You Travel

When travelling to a new country, many of us buy a SIM card as soon as we land—but it often turns into a frustrating experience. You have to find the kiosk, provide the right documents, pay, and then wait for activation. What if you could skip the whole charade and get an instant local connection, and reasonable rates, instead? Enter, travel eSIMs.

The “e” in eSIM stands for embedded. Many recent flagship smartphones ship with an electronic SIM card embedded inside. Every iPhone from the iPhone XR and every Pixel from Pixel 2 supports this, as do many Samsung phones.

And, because this is an embedded SIM, there’s no need for a physical SIM card to access a carrier network. It can all be arranged using built-in software (as long as the carrier supports eSIM). This means you can get on a new network, and use it as a data connection, while still receiving calls on your primary number.
