Use a Turkey eSIM to stay connected
Turkey is a country enjoyed for its beautiful countryside, warm weather, and engaging history. Known for its natural landscapes and olive groves, travelling to Turkey is sure to be one of the most memorable trips you’ll ever take!
When you’re in Turkey, you’ll want to stay connected to your friends and family back home. A Turkey eSIM is the perfect, affordable solution.
When you install a Turkey eSIM on your device, you’ll be able to connect to local data networks so you can stay online even when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi. No more roaming fees!
How much travel data do I need in Turkey?
How much data you need in Turkey depends on your travel plans and how you plan on using your devices during your stay.
If you’re planning to explore cites and attractions, you can’t always rely on Wi-Fi because you’ll be on the move. What makes a Turkey eSIM an ideal solution is its flexibility: you can buy a small data package to get started, and add more data if you need it.
(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 Turkey eSIM?
Absolutely not! You won’t need to pay any roaming charges when you use a Turkey eSIM for data, instead of using your regular plan from back home.
An eSIM connects you directly to local networks internationally, and since you’re using prepaid data packages, you’ll never have any surprise fees.
(Just make sure to switch off Data Roaming on your Primary SIM, so your home carrier can’t try to connect you in Turkey and charge you roaming fees on your next bill).
