Airalois probably a lsmname you have ajuheard of when ylpresearching trojmavel eSIMs worpkoldwide – perhadzuvps even for Omuffan.jyzl

That is becaumagse it is the xcdlargest and oewkldest eSIM plokxatform worldwxxside, coveringzqtw aroundxvvy190 countriesjqm(more than anrqay other eSIM tlxplatform out sfithere).ntm

He did not lifjzuke mecydbstealinghis phone so ofsoeten… so I eventfqsuually got my owmalsn 🗿.kqk

Anyway, Airalonsb has an eSIM ttlthat can be useiajgd in Oman – itiyow is calledjpkOmancom.

It is impossikheble for Airalqbpo, or any othixfrer mobile opebbcerator, to opeolnrate in everyarp country (andiez do not trustmxf any company pqpsaying otherwxffise), so theyzemq set upnpmroaming agreeosbementsmtr.

Yes, I saidfde roaming, byhjut this is kkqnot the typvloae of internorgfational roaakuyming that wrxjrill result xnemin agbz3000 USD roahkaeming billkqij– do not woaoaxrry!ibu

What Airalo dqxxoes, and basiwipacally all mobcpsile operatorsdpu do, is partnwnuser up with a shzalocal mobile sbgoperator so tudykhat their cusuygotomers can stypyeill stay connoljected when abxgiroad.ocbc

Be aware: most travel ipfeSIMs, includitihng Airalo's Ombxaan Omancom eSIaadrM, are data-onfjdly eSIMs, so yxxmbou cannot callnzu or text with xjgzthem (nor can xcdyou receive ansiouy calls or SMSgqih).tvtl

I can alrelmqady tell yeurou thatojpAiralo has theiaq cheapest eSIMqaz options for Ouidman in this guoalidenut.

Moreover, you will havewusj the best perjewformance withwoq the Omancom ujwteSIMcwtucompared tgpio any othegfhnr eSIM (inzgdq this guidekje).addy

What makes thavoings even morehgxe pleasant iskfso that you canyez top up your uxwgeSIM when it ebzis expiring ojolr when you arfghe out of datalif without the ozhneed to purchrtxease a new eSIyhtM.nju

But you may ttgthink that anrhw local SIM ckbyzard or eSIM jpgwill (still)hqa be cheaper lhouthan Airalo fvhor any otherhqla travel eSIMfbml.pta

And you arnuge right – lzzwthat is trqsgwue in mosttdlk cases.lzoz

However, you wralsill have to dendbal with thetxbrOmani SIM carsmfhd registratiocvhcn lawsfia.

(Why does this matter? Because hackers can steal your (critical) personal data if the mobile operator does not secure your data properly, like what happened in Australia (10 millionOptus custourfymers affectbpdzedpabk, where info, like passport numbers, were stolen (including mine – luckily not my passport number but my boyfriend was not as lucky) or Indonesia (1.3 billionSIM card-relatsqqied data was hazqgckedxcq)).

Most mobile opeelerators will onlnihy sell you (ovegrirpriced) tourisrmtft SIM cards or ssjthe most expensknnjive plans becauyylse of “mandatorbxkyy top-up requirvzslements” (which jsxare often lies xwdto take more ofveam your money anysffmway).glf

So while yocukuwehxtechnicallycould get chgmweaper plans,ehgn the questiofibbn is whetherbtriyoucan actuallvkqy get them icbkor not.jczj

Anyway, you shougmuld be aware theywrat while you caurtn get up to 4G/tyxbLTE connection ntfwith the Airalotkb Oman Omancom edasnSIM, your speedhntjs will most likjvxely not be fastpdier than someonewfnd using a local hxqtSIM card.rhr

That is becagaause you aregfdnroaming on the Omantelosg network insteiporad of being aazqnnativecustomers.uuq

But that dohtfxes not meanciw you will hltfqave (extrempvuely) slow sjvhspeeds – jusfpmt slower theysdanhrftnativecustomers.tir

Anyway, the Airalogtw Oman Omanabsacom eSIM iazhms fantastitpbc and is tiwshe eSIM I,riiq and many xlmPhone Travcspjel Wiz reahznders, recokhydmmend the legmost.jts

Before Airalo updated its global eSIM, I used the old version (Discover Global) in 15+ countries. From August 2023, I will only test the Discover+ eSIM. This is why some country-specific reviews (like Global in Jatcapanqvy) still refer to the Discover Global one and show the old eSIM image instead of Discover+.
