How much travel data do I need in Germany?
How much data you may need during a trip to Germany will depend on a few factors.
First off, how much time will you be spending near a reliable Wi-Fi connection? You’re probably going to need data for driving (or walking) directions using a maps app, so you can find your way to the Berlin Wall or the Rhine Valley. You’ll also likely need data when you want to have a video call or share photos with your friends and family back home.
This is where a Germany eSIM comes to your rescue! Your flexible eSIM data package will let you stay connected anywhere you travel within Germany, without needing Wi-Fi.
(Oh, and did we mention you’ll have full access to your regular phone number the whole time? Because that’s pretty useful.)
Will I pay roaming charges with a Germany eSIM?
Nein! You won’t pay any roaming charges! Once activated, your Germany eSIM will connect your device to a local German network, just as if you were a full-time resident.
You won’t have to deal with any roaming fees because your phone will exclusively be using your aloSIM eSIM data. (Just be sure to disable Data Roaming on your Primary SIM card, so your carrier back home isn’t trying to connect you.)
