You’ll enjoy a reliable local internet connection anytime you need it, whether you’re at the beach or out on an excursion.

Some people use their phone a lot on vacation, and others prefer to mostly stay offline, except for occasional check-ins.

When you need data on the go, aloSIM is here for you. Instantly add local data to your phone, and always know exactly what you’re paying.
Have full access to your regular phone number while traveling

But do you know what happens with you remove your SIM card? You remove your phone number, too. Yikes!

What do I need to know about visiting sun destinations in 2023?
Has it been a few years since you traveled to your favorite sun destination? The travel experience might be a bit different fin 2023, but we assure you the beaches are just as gorgeous as you remember.
As of Jan. 1, 2023, certain countries (such as the Dominican Republic) now require your passport to be valid for at least six (6) months after your scheduled day of departure. So it’s a good idea to make sure your passport is in check with this rule, even if you’re visiting a country that doesn’t seem to have it in place yet.
If you haven’t flown in a couple of years, you might be surprised to hear about the recent increase in flight delays and cancellations. Download your airline’s app, sign in for your flight as soon as you can, and pay close attention to any reported changes to your itinerary.
Should I stick to carry-on luggage only?
More than ever before, travellers are choosing to fly with only carry-on luggage rather than checking larger suitcases.
Some do this because they naturally pack light, some do it because they like the convenience of strolling off the plane and straight out of the airport, and others prefer only flying with carry-on luggage so they don’t have to worry about their bags missing a connection.
Either way, be sure to keep medications, important toiletries, your phone + charger, a bathing suit, and sandals in your carry-on luggage just in case. You don’t want any delays in hitting the beach as soon as you arrive!
Be sure any liquids or gels are under 100ML and all fit into a quart-sized clear bag (one bag per person) that you’ll need to show at security.
What should I pack for a vacation to a sun destination?
No two packing lists are exactly alike, since people like to spend their beach vacations differently. While some prefer to keep it casual in T-shirts, shorts, sneakers, and bathing suits, others enjoy dressing up for dinner and cocktails.
But no matter how you plan to spend your time at your favorite sun destination, here are a few travel essentials to consider taking along …
Sunscreen: You don’t realize how different two brands can be until you’re slathering on something you hate, so consider bringing your go-to sunscreen from home.
Rash guard: Don’t let a first-day sunburn ruin the next couple of days of your trip. Consider packing one of these sun-resistant shirts (sold for $50-$100 in resort gift shops, but much cheaper to buy at home) to wear in case of a sunburn.
