Choosing a Prune eSim for travel


Before selecting the eSim for your upcoming trip, consider these factors


·         Your Travel Destination:   Decide your travel location. Chile eSim keeps you connected within the country, depending on your chosen plan. However, if your travel plans change and you decide to visit other nations, you can choose regional or Global eSim plans.  


  • Duration of your stay: Every eSim plan offered by Prune comes with a desired validity period (e.g., 7 days, 15 days, 30 days). However, if your travel plan changes and the validity period expires, you can extend the connectivity, either topping up your existing plan or buying an additional eSim.


  • Data Requirements: Tailored to your data consumption, Prune's eSIM offers several data packages (1GB, 2GB, 3GB). Normally, 1GB of data caters to routine tasks such as emailing and social media browsing.



eSim and Device Compatibility
