Best new eSIM Europe prepaid plans in 2023
Congratulations on making it to the new year! If 2023 is when you finally choose to experience the magic of Europe in person, you’re at the right place to find the best mobile Internet experience with our brand new eSIM Europe prepaid plans.
These plans are suitable for all your mobile Internet needs and give high-speed 4G Internet with strong network coverage throughout Europe so that you get the Internet experience you’re usually used to at home.
Visiting a continent as expansive as Europe means you have a lot of ground to cover and ideally you need a comprehensive solution for your mobile Internet needs if you don’t plan on spending thousands on roaming charges.
If you choose to stick with your carrier’s plan, you can expect to rack up huge roaming charges for using data that you may not have even used consciously. This brings us to the question, why exactly are roaming costs so high?
When it comes to international roaming, telecom companies get into deals with each other that enable consumers to access each other’s networks. Your carrier foots this bill which is in turn passed on to you. There is no ceiling on these charges and therefore the current situation with international roaming charges.
Getting a Europe eSIM plan will enable you to skip roaming charges altogether and instead give you total freedom with regard to your Internet usage while on holiday. Let’s look in more detail:

What is an eSIM and how does it give me better holiday Internet?
In the past, when it came to getting an Internet connection at your holiday destination meant that you had to submit required documents and fill up the necessary paperwork. While this is possible even now, the sheer convenience afforded by eSIMs has made the practice almost obsolete.
An eSIM (embedded SIM) is built into your phone and enables you to switch networks with ease without the need for any physical removal or reinsertion of a SIM card. All you have to do is buy a bundle that is fit for your needs and then scan a QR code to activate it.
This is all that’s required of you to unlock high-speed 4G Internet powered by Orange for the entire duration of your holiday. If this level of convenience isn’t enough to convince you, our Europe eSIMs are blazing fast, with near-total coverage across Europe, and give you incredible security.
Is Europe eSIM more secure than normal SIM cards?
Compared to a traditional SIM card, eSIMs offer multiple layers of data safety and encourage the best practices for staying safe online in a foreign country. By using an eSIM, you can entirely bypass the need to connect to a public Wi-Fi network and also forget about keeping and storing your SIM cards safely.
Using public Wi-Fi can be convenient, but it can also pose some security risks. When you connect to a public Wi-Fi network, you are connecting to a network that is shared by other users, and this can make it easier for someone to intercept your online activity or steal your personal information.
These can happen through man-in-the-middle attacks, unsecured networks, and malware. It’s not necessarily a matter of how many times you connect to an unknown Wi-Fi network, but rather the level of security measures in place to protect your communication and personal information while using the network.
Connecting to any public Wi-Fi network, whether it’s one you’ve never connected to before or one you’ve used many times, carries some level of risk.
Furthermore, as SIM cards are small and lost often, there is also the need to store them safely – a problem eliminated by eSIMs as they are built into the phone. You also don’t need to carry the SIM tray ejection tool. Just using an eSIM will leave you with fewer things to worry about!
Europe eSIM speed and signal strength
With Internet speeds of up to 150Mbps, our Europe eSIM plans can save hours on your holiday. You don’t need to wait for apps or pages to load, resulting in a flawless Internet experience – a must for the modern traveler or digital nomad who wants to make the most of their vacation.
Slow mobile Internet is the last thing you want to deal with while on vacation. Unfortunately, this is often the case.
A sluggish Internet connection may spoil your vacation in many ways.
Your streaming experience can suffer along with any work you plan on getting done remotely. You can waste hours waiting for things to load or files to attach.
All of this may be harmful to the laid-back holiday mood you’re trying for, and might even leave you feeling worried and irritated.
When it comes to network coverage, our Europe eSIMs are powered by Orange, which has been consistently rated as one of the best mobile networks in Europe thanks to its pan-European coverage.
This means you will receive a strong signal wherever you are in Europe, be it a remote village or a bustling city center.
Will my phone or device support Europe eSIM?
The eSIM is a revolutionary technology that has changed the way we think about international mobile data connectivity. All newer smartphone models have eSIM support with the iPhone 14 even going exclusively eSIM. This indicates that in the future all phones would support eSIM and the traditional SIM card will be a thing of the past.
Moreover, eSIMs are also compatible with devices such as smartwatches and laptops. To see if your phone or device supports eSIM, refer to our updated guide here.
How to install and activate my Europe eSIM?
Installing and activating your Europe eSIM only takes seconds.
First, check for the eSIM bundle that best suits your needs from our store at www.holidayesim.com. Buy, and then check your email for a QR code.
You need to now scan this code with your phone to set up your new connection.
- Open Settings on your phone
- Navigate to the option labeled ‘Use a different network’
- When prompted, select ‘Scan QR code’ and scan the code you received in your mail
That’s all! Please note that it is highly recommended to only scan your code once you are physically present in Europe otherwise your plan may get activated unnecessarily.
We advise you to purchase your eSIM bundle in advance to take advantage of our offers and only proceed with scanning after you touch down in Europe.
