Top 5 reasons you should get a travel eSIM during your holidays

Getting high-speed and reliable Internet during your holiday is now possible in just a few seconds when you are getting an eSIM bundle from us. From avoiding ridiculous roaming charges to getting 4G data wherever you are, the eSIMs are plainly the best connectivity solution for the modern traveler who cannot afford to go off the grid during their time off.

With an eSIM bundle, you can get a mobile data plan that best fits your connectivity needs and also the flexibility to pay-as-you-go without getting locked into a plan or paying more than you need to.

Powered by Orange, our eSIMs offer the best coverage across Europe, download and upload speeds, and data limits that can serve all your needs and more without having to invest much thought or energy.

Let’s look at some reasons why an eSIM bundle can be indispensable for your holiday.

Experience blazing Internet speed in Europe with Orange eSIM

Poor Internet speed and coverage can leave you frustrated and raise your stress levels depending on the severity with which they are affecting you. Imagine being on your great European holiday and waiting forever to load a map or look up a local restaurant! 

We believe that time is better spent actually enjoying your holiday.

Orange eSIM supports rates of up to 300Mbps, making it one of the fastest mobile data connections on the market.

This means we may stream films and download things at fast rates without fear of our broadband connection slowing us down. Orange eSIM is not only speedy but also incredibly dependable, especially in locations with low signal coverage.

If you have sluggish Internet, streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Amazon Prime, YouTube, and others may be difficult to load. What should be a smooth experience becomes a sluggish affair in which you must pause and wait for the rest of the show or movie to finish buffering.

It also becomes a serious concern when sending huge files. On slow Internet, what would take a few seconds could even end up taking many hours, depending on the connection.

Connect instantly with your Europe holiday eSIM

Picture landing at the more exotic European destinations and asking around where you can get a SIM card and plan. Even if you are able to overcome possible language barriers, be prepared to bust that pen out and start filling up forms.

You also would need to submit documents depending on the region and the plan you are interested in. You will most probably end up signing up for a mediocre experience as far as connectivity is concerned.

But grabbing an eSIM will save you from having to suffer any such annoyances. 

As an eSIM is completely virtual, all you need to do is just buy a bundle that suits you from any of our websites.

You will receive an email with a QR code in a few seconds which you would then need to scan using your phone. That’s all you need to do. No paperwork is involved!

We highly recommend buying an eSIM bundle before flying and only activating it when you land at your destination. Because it is only compatible with networks in Europe, you won't be able to install the eSIM on your handset until you are physically present in Europe. This is because it is the only region in which it is supported.

The eSIM already has a phone number pre-loaded onto it and will start once the eSIM has been used for the first time (for a call, an SMS message, or a connection to the Internet).

Please ensure your phone is eSIM-compatible before making a purchase. For a list of compatible devices, check here.

Orange eSIMs only cost a fraction of roaming mobile data plans

What if you could just browse while out of your country as you normally would at home without dreading potential roaming charges? Whether you are just waiting for your ride or flight or looking up something at a coffee shop, you can understandably dread racking up significant charges even reaching the thousands if you are not careful with your usage habits.

Some of you might carefully monitor mobile data usage with the help of tools on your phone but given how complex and rapid modern-day browsing, streaming, and file transfer are, you can’t expect to get an accurate picture of your potential use.

You might be paying for each GB or MB depending on your plan and based on your habits you can severely overuse and then regret coming back to a roaming bill amounting to thousands. 

We can’t think of a worse way to end your holiday!

However, with an Orange eSIM, you only pay for what you use and nothing more. With a flexible pay-as-you-go model, you will never go over your plan and can instantly top-up whenever you run out of data.

With us, you can forget about racking up roaming charges and instead focus on your holiday. There are also no hidden fees.

What’s more, each of our travel eSIM bundles comes with unlimited calling and SMS in Europe and a massive amount of international calling credit and messages so you literally have no reason to hesitate to make international calls or texts.

Keep your data safe with Orange holiday eSIMs

While you may see Wi-Fi as being ubiquitous, you must understand that connecting to public networks can come with serious consequences including data loss/theft to setting yourself up for getting hacked. 

When you connect to a network that you are not familiar with and then begin browsing the web, you are putting yourself in a position where someone might potentially intercept your traffic and use it against you. This traffic includes your passwords and other sensitive information. 

You may think you won’t have much data that can be considered sensitive, but you are still opening yourself up to threats like ransomware attacks, phishing to compromise your bank information, and more.

Hackers will be able to open brand-new accounts in your name and run up enormous sums of debt. They may also use the information you provide to commit identity theft, which may have a negative impact on your credit score and make it more difficult for you to obtain a loan or lease an apartment.

Hackers might also use the information they steal from you to blackmail you or sell it on the underground market.

When you become a target of hackers, they have a tendency to understand a great deal of information about you. Some of this information includes: 

  • The entirety of the data on your device 

  • All of the places you've ever been to with your device 

  • Your personality and psychological profile based on analyzing your social media and digital footprint 

  • Sensitive documents you upload 

  • Passwords and personal identification numbers 

  • Sensitive documents you upload

A hacker who has access to your information may, in a nutshell, wreak havoc on your life, which is why it is essential to be cautious about securing your data.

However, when you are on an eSIM plan, your data remains safe from prying eyes as you simply do not need to connect to any Wi-Fi (public or private).

Orange eSIMs offer complete coverage across all of Europe

Coverage across European countries is a major factor when considering an eSIM bundle. Your Internet needs to be reliable and stable in all areas covered by your package while offering decent speeds in even remote areas.

Considering how vast Europe is, you can expect weak signals in areas that may not be particularly known for their infrastructure. Even in more developed nations, you can still expect to have to deal with differences in coverage depending on regional infrastructure. For example, the Internet speed you may experience in the Italian countryside would be different from what you would get if you are in a big city like Rome. This is also true for other countries.

However, Orange is one of the few mobile providers in Europe to provide coverage over the entirety of the continent.

The company dominates all significant European markets and caters to local tastes by providing a variety of mobile broadband packages. When it comes to mobile technology, Orange is a company that has been at the forefront for quite some time.

The firm was an early adopter of 3G services in Europe and remains at the forefront today, having introduced 4G services in 2013. The team at Orange is dedicated to giving you the best mobile service possible. The firm places a premium on providing a positive experience for its customers and is always looking for new ways to improve its offerings by way of, for example, expanding its network or introducing novel features and/or services.

Your Orange travel eSIM can get you round-the-clock connectivity in the following countries.

Andorra, Azores, Aland islands, Austria, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Belgium, Cyprus, Crete, Corfu, The Cyclades, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Faeroe Islands, Finland, France mainland, Gibraltar, Germany, Greece, Guernsey, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Jersey, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madeira, Malta, Isle of Man, Norway, Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Rhodes, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom, San Marino, Sardinia, Sicily, Slovakia, Switzerland, Sweden, Vatican City.
