What is Saily?

Saily is the latest initiative from NordVPN, and it’s an eSIM service app that provides mobile data packages to at least 150 countries worldwide. The app uses a phone’s eSIM (also known as embedded SIM) function to allow users access to travel data plans without needing to look for a physical SIM or other travel data options from their provider. Such an improvement offers substantial benefits for avid travelers that often use the internet when abroad and want to save money on roaming charges, avoid unsafe public Wi-Fi hotspots, or manage their travel data more efficiently.

Activate Saily eSIM card

The app will then ask you to install the eSIM that will allow you access to the data in the preferred destination. Installing the eSIM doesn’t start your data plan. After installing the eSIM, you will need to activate your data plan to start using the package. Both installation and activation requires an internet connection, so make sure you set up your connection before traveling abroad.
