Why get an eSIM in 2023?

Having an eSIM instead of a traditional SIM card is simply the modern way to travel. Imagine swapping out SIM cards and fumbling around with the tray ejector tool all the while hoping your plan has enough data to get you through the holiday. We don’t think that’s anyone’s idea of relaxation during a holiday. 

What’s worse, you may have even signed up for your home carrier’s roaming plan, which would mean you’re probably going to come home to a devastatingly huge bill, that’s sure to wipe off that post-holiday glow! In addition, you will end up paying so much for your data usage and also wrestle with poor browsing speeds and spotty connectivity. 

This is just due to the nature of international roaming plans. Which do you think will get you more bang for your buck? A prepaid plan that gets you best-in-class connectivity by connecting you to leading local networks or getting locked into a contract with your home carrier for a plan that charges absurdly high fees per MB?

Moreover, embracing eSIM technology also means you get to use multiple profiles. There are many situations where you may want to use multiple phone numbers. With eSIMs, you can have as many profiles as your phone supports. You are no longer constrained by the dual SIM option that many phones have these days but instead have at your disposal multiple eSIMs which you can manage with precision.

Finally, you don’t really need to find a store that sells SIM cards, deal with any potential language barriers or produce any ID proofs to get connected. Just buy the plan from our store and you’re all set!

Getting an eSIM is the smart choice for international travelers in 2023. 

What are the benefits of Holiday eSIM Italy?

Holiday eSIM Italy enables you to enjoy all the benefits offered by eSIM technology in addition to giving you a comprehensive solution for your connectivity while you are there. By giving you network coverage all over Europe, you are given a degree of freedom and flexibility to travel as you like. Since your prepaid eSIM plan will work outside Italy, that will be one less thing to worry about should you plan to leave the country and explore the rest of Europe!

However, the biggest convenience you get from Holiday eSIM is simply the ease of setting up and using the prepaid plan. With instant activation, you don’t need to do anything additional other than buy your plan to go online with your number. 

Did we also mention that Holiday eSIM prioritizes your privacy? The amount of personal information you need to provide when obtaining an eSIM from Holiday eSIM is minimal compared to the extensive details typically required by traditional mobile network providers. While many eSIM providers would require you to download their apps and such to get started with their eSIM while we need only your registered email address to send you the eSIM QR code. We believe this hassle-free installation and set-up is essential to preserve your momentum to explore without limits. 

Moreover, our eSIM for Italy comes with a French phone number with which you can make unlimited calls and send unlimited texts all over Europe. This is in addition to the international voice credit included in the plan. 

How to get the Italy eSIM?

Getting started with the Italy eSIM only takes under a minute and requires minimal effort. First, head to our online store here and choose the eSIM plan that best fits your needs. Once you complete your purchase, you will receive an email on your registered email address containing detailed installation instructions for your Italy eSIM. 

We recommend that you take advantage of any of our special promotions and buy your plan in advance, and only activate it on the day of your arrival.
