Carefree Internet on your diving vacation thanks to the purchase of an eSim

Are you going on a diving vacation soon and do you want to stay online? Then consider purchasing an eSim. An eSim is a built-in SIM card that allows connecting to a local foreign network. The eSim is completely digital, so you don’t put a card in your phone. The eSim technology is becoming increasingly popular because of its convenience for travelers, who can now easily activate local data plans and avoid high roaming charges.

Advantages of an eSim on Vacation

An eSim offers several advantages for divers going on diving vacations. Avoiding roaming charges: Traditional roaming charges can be high. With an eSim, you avoid these costs by easily activating local data plans upon arrival. Convenience and flexibility: You can easily switch between networks without changing physical SIM cards. This instantly activates a local data plan without the hassle. Useful if, for example, you combine 2 countries on one diving trip. Always connected: With an eSim, you have reliable connections even in remote areas. This is ideal for navigation, communication and access to information. In addition, you can keep your physical SIM card, so you remain reachable on your own phone number.

Purchasing an eSim at Holafly

We recommend that our customers purchase an eSim from Holafly. Through this little link you can do so at an additional 5% discount because you are coming through EWDR. Ideal. On Holafly’s website, you can specify which country you are going on vacation to and for how long. For most countries, Holafly can offer an unlimited Internet package, useful if you want to keep the home front informed or update your socials with photos and videos.

Is my phone eSim compatible?

Before purchasing an eSim, it is important to check if your phone is eSim compatible. Many of Apple’s phones are eSIM-enabled. This actually applies to every model starting with the iPhone XR. Examples of which iPhone can use an eSIM include the iPhone 14, iPhone 13 and iPhone XS. The same is true for Android phones, most new models, pretty much from the Samsung Galaxy S23 / Google Pixel 7 / OnePlus 12, support the use of an eSim. Check your phone before buying an eSim To be sure, it’s best to go to your phone’s settings and then go to Mobile Data/Networks/Connections. In this menu you will also find the (e)Sim settings. Or, of course, you can just grab the specifications of your device, which always list eSim as well.
