Our Airalo eSIM review:

5/5
During our world trip we used Airalo's eSims all the time. And we still do! Reliable and stable network. Before we fly off to a new country, we purchase a data bundle through the Airalo app. Once arrived we can skip the lines at the airport and immediately start browsing.

Good to know about Airalo & eSIMs:

  • Airalo gives you Airmoney with every purchase or top up. You’ll get 5% of each transaction returned as Airmoney in your Airalo account. This credit can be used for future purchases.
  • eSIMs provide data-only connection. Although you can’t call or text with your eSIM, you still can receive phone calls and SMS from your physical sim card. Your eSIM is installed digitally while your traditional sim card is still in your phone.
