The SIM format is compatible with all devices available on the market. It is a triple cut SIM, mini, micro and nano format.
Some of our offer are also available in eSIM format but only some of the devices are compatible with this technology. Please read the compatible devices list carefully before your purchase. In addition, some carriers do not allow a SIM from another carrier. They could lock the eSIM installation. Check with your local carrier.

You can buy your eSIM Holiday before your departure. You will need an Internet connection to buy online and receive it by e-mail.
Next, you need to install your eSIM. You can install it before traveling or upon arrival. Your device must have an internet connection to install your eSIM. The activation will be done automatically once the SIM card will be under a european network coverage.
