When should I set up my eSIM for traveling internationally?
Important Tip: Don't set up your eSIM too early.
Each eSIM data plan has a limited number of days of service, so don't start installing and activating too early, or the billing will start counting down before the trip begins.
Best practice is to set up your data plan on the day of your travel.
Of course, if you are still at home before a business trip, you can also install it, because the eSIM installation process requires a stable Wi-Fi connection, but be careful not to activate it. In addition, it should be noted that some eSIMs start to activate billing when they are installed, such as DTAC. Overall, the most cost-effective suggestion is to install and activate after arriving at the destination Airport, so as to avoid unnecessary costs.
In addition, pay attention to the precise calculation method of unlimited data plans service days, The activation date is the first day and expires at 24:00 on the last day. The date and time above refer to Hong Kong Time (UTC+8).
