Use an India eSIM to stay connected
India boasts a fascinating array of ancient ruins, religious monuments, and unique sights that beckon visitors from all over the globe.
When visiting India, you’ll still want to be able to use your phone normally and stay in touch with your loved ones. That’s why an India eSIM is the perfect solution for travel data.
By installing an India eSIM on your device, you’ll be able to connect to local networks and have the data you need to enjoy your trip comfortably.
How much travel data do I need in India?
How much data you’ll need in India will vary from person to person. While there’s probably free Wi-Fi available at your hotel, how much time are you actually going to be spending in your hotel room?
You’ll want at least a small amount of affordable data on your phone so you can stay connected during your daily travels, especially if you need an internet connection for GPS/maps to get around.
Luckily, an India eSIM lets your phone or tablet use prepaid data packages to maintain a steady connection. Not sure how much data you’ll need? Start with a small package and add more data if you need it.
Will I pay roaming charges with an India eSIM?
When you use an India eSIM, you won’t pay roaming charges because you’re relying on a local network for your data.
Just don’t forget to turn off Data Roaming on your Primary SIM card, so your phone understands it’s only allowed to use your local eSIM data during your trip.
