International traveller connectivity: the benefits of eSIM

In the context of the strong recovery of international travel, access to mobile internet abroad is now an essential service. With an average connectivity budget of 43 euros per traveller when travelling abroad, get turnkey connectivity solution and avoid high costs and bill shocks.

The eSIM (or virtual SIM card) allows travellers to activate a mobile data plan instantly, remotely (with a QR code or via an application), without having to change their physical SIM card. They can still be reached on their usual number (calls/SMS) while benefiting from rapid and immediate access to the Internet as soon as they get off the plane at any airport in the world.

This new technology is integrated into many smartphones, tablets and computers and constitutes a simple, secure and economical alternative to the solutions that have existed until now to connect to the mobile Internet from abroad.

Purchasing a local SIM card does not allow you to be contacted on your own number and is no longer suited to travellers’ expectations. When possible with your operator, roaming is an expensive service with sometimes exorbitant prices depending on the geographical area. “In some destinations, we have found that eSIM solutions can save up to 90% compared to the roaming offers provided by traditional operators. eSIM is, therefore, the ideal solution to stay connected abroad without breaking the bank”, says Marie-Julie Le Guen, Marketing Director at Transatel.
