Telstra vs TravelSim®

International eSIM Comparison for Europe


International eSims, and the ability to have multiple eSim profiles for different countries saved on one device, are revolutionizing the way that we use data and devices when we travel.

The main benefit of an eSim is that everything you need is already built into your smartphone or tablet, waiting to be activated. You can store multiple SIM profiles on one device through an eSIM, allowing you to keep both personal and business calls to one phone, simplifying your travel plans.

With the goal being to find the most competitive rates, and streamline the way in which you use your gadgets while on the go, how do you decide which eSim provider is right for you? Depending on where you’re traveling to, you might find that there are different deals to be found with different providers, so it’s important to compare. Let’s take a look at how TravelSim® shapes up when compared to Telstra.

TravelSim® Overview

With more than 4.5 million users worldwide, TravelSim® has been helping travelers to roam easily since 2006. Our international eSIM covers over 200 global destinations, and our physical sim cards can be used in more than 135 countries and are shipped worldwide.

Our eSIM can be bought and activated through a QR code within minutes, and is perfect for when you intend to pass through several countries without the hassle of changing a physical SIM card.

Telstra Overview

As one of Australia’s leading telecommunications mobile operators, Telstra provides millions of retail and data bundles. Embracing the growing eSIM enthusiasm, if you buy a new phone or tablet from Telstra, they give you the option between a physical SIM card or an eSIM straight off the bat. A slight inconvenience is that you have to download the Telstra app to monitor your mobile and data usage, and to manage their eSIM packages. Their prepaid international roaming packages cover 35 destinations.
