How does eSIM work?

An eSIM is an embedded SIM card, and you probably already have an eSIM-compatible device. When you install an eSIM for a country or region, it lets your device connect to local networks in that area. This means your device will have data without needing Wi-Fi or paying roaming charges.

Should I buy individual eSIMs for the United Kingdom and Ireland, or a combined U.K. and Ireland eSIM?

That’s totally up to you! We offer identical pricing for our United Kingdom eSIM data packages, our Ireland eSIM data packages, and our combined U.K. and Ireland eSIM data packages.

But if you’ll be spending time in both the U.K. and Ireland, it makes sense to stick with one eSIM that works in both countries. Then you don’t have to worry about having leftover data for one country that can’t work in the other country.
