Staying connected with an eSIM (and no to data roaming fees) on your European vacation

Are you ready to set out to Europe on your trip of a lifetime? 

Whether you’re traveling for five days or five weeks, a European vacation of any kind is sure to be exciting. There’s so much to see, and it’s so convenient to get everywhere, with trains and cheap flights available in spades. 

As you’re gearing up and making your final planning decisions for your exciting time abroad, chances are you’ll start thinking about a data plan for staying connected while you’re gone. It can be important, with family and friends who’ll want to hear about your adventures, and it’ll make it easier for you to send those beautiful pics their way. 

Your carrier’s international data plans or pay-per-use data plans can add up fast, and often cost $16 per day. On top of this, you may even be hit with data roaming fees if you use your phone while away. 

The great news is you don’t have to worry about any of that, when you purchase eSIM data packages from aloSIM.

The benefits of staying connected during your trip

aloSIM is an eSIM data app where users can get affordable mobile data in 130+ countries (and counting). The app is free to download and easy to use with most newer devices, and it’s a much more affordable option than paying for a carrier travel data package.

It’s also a tool that can make your time away more enjoyable as you stay connected. Imagine yourself strolling along the Seine in Paris, France, eating a delicious pastry, when you realize you’ve walked further than intended and are lost. When you have eSIM mobile data, it’s no stress, because you know you can search directions and find your way back in no time at all.

What about once you’re getting ready to leave for the next leg of your trip, and need to check or make changes to your plane or train tickets? Or maybe even your hostel or hotel booking? You’ll want to be sure your internet connection is safe and secure, and fast as well, so you’re accessing the most up-to-date information possible. That’s exactly what your eSIM mobile data will help you do. Travel plans can change quickly, so staying connected and tuned in to any changes will save you more stress than you can imagine. 

Another fun benefit of staying connected while you’re away is the ability to hop on a video call with friends and family, any time of the day, so you can share a special travel moment with them, even though they’re thousands of kilometres away. Maybe it’s the beautiful medieval town of Augsburg in Germany, or a trip down one of Bruges’ famous canals in Belgium. Whatever the experience, it’s a great feeling to know you can share it anytime with those you love, when you have aloSIM eSIM mobile data ready to use.

Also, when enjoying your European vacation, use Adobe Express’s QR code generator to effortlessly connect your eSIM and avoid costly data roaming fees.

eSIM data available across Europe (and in 130+ countries worldwide)

In addition to saving you stress during your trip, purchasing aloSIM’s eSIM mobile data before you leave for your vacation is also a simple, stress-free process. You can choose from any one of its 130+ countries, or even from regional packages, all of which connect you to fast local networks once you’ve arrived at your travel destination. 

This connection does a number of things. It ensures your eSIM mobile data service is fast and that your connection won’t be interrupted. And since your connection is private, it ensures your device (and your personal info on it) is safe and secure, unlike public wi-fi networks.

Ready to try it out, but not sure where to start? No worries – we’ve got you covered. Here are some easy, simple steps to using eSIM for Europe travel. 

  • Check your device

aloSIM has several tools online that will walk you through how to get started with eSIM, including its Device Checker. This tool asks customers to answer a few quick questions to find whether their device is eSIM compatible. 

  • Choose your country or region

Once you’ve finalized your travel destination(s), your next step is to choose your data package. aloSIM offers several options, with plans from 1 GB to 20 GB, and package options that are valid for up to 30 days. 

And if your European vacation has several stops in different countries, aloSIM has packages that will work for that too. In addition to country-specific packages, it offers a Western Europe regional package that provides eSIM data in France, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

aloSIM also offers an Eastern Europe regional package, with eSIM data in Bulgaria, Croatia, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Greece and Serbia.

  • Buy your package

Once you’ve completed your list of regions you’ll need eSIM mobile data for, you’ll want to purchase your packages. 

Packages can be purchased from either, or on the free aloSIM app, available for download from the App Store and on Google Play

  • Install your new eSIM

Never used an eSIM before? It might sound tricky, but setting it up is quite simple. aloSIM’s website has a number of helpful tips to using the technology, including on how to install your eSIM on different eSIM-compatible smartphone devices. 

  • Start using your eSIM data. 

You can even use your regular phone number via your eSIM data, which will give you the data you need for calling and texting, if you’d like to be reachable while traveling. If you’re not sure which internet calling app to use, try aloSIM’s sister app Hushed.

Always remember to keep data roaming toggled OFF for your primary SIM, so your carrier doesn’t connect to an international network and charge you data roaming fees. 

When you travel abroad with eSIM mobile data, especially on the trip of a lifetime to Europe, your trip will feel like a breeze. Stay connected while away and purchase your aloSIM eSIM data before you leave, from either the free aloSIM app, or buy online at
