eSIMs for Australia: The Best Travel Plans | 2024 Guide

Australia – known for the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef & Kangaroos that want to punch you when they get the chance.

The country is so large, the 6th largest in the world, that it is often considered a continent on its own.

While New Zealand, its brother, is often omitted from world maps – the unwanted child?

Nah, New Zealand is fabulous. But let's stick to Australia for now.

Australia has become a popular destination for education, especially for students from the Pacific Oceania region.

The country also attracts many European youngsters, who can take advantage of the Working Holiday (or Work and Holiday) schemes, allowing them to stay for a year and up to three years to work and explore the country.

While mentioning all the attractions you should see and experience could be a 2000+ article blog on its own, there is no reason to be bored in Australia.

The country has become more expensive over the years, so any way to save some cash while in Australia to spend on experiences is appreciated.

But before you share your colorful Australia experiences online, be aware that international roaming can be expensive.

Travel eSIMs can be a much more affordable way to stay connected, even in Australia.

How much will a travel eSIM for Australia cost?

You can get a travel eSIM for Australia for as little as 4.50 USD, with 1 GB for 7 days, and up to 54 USD, for unlimited data, from Airalo, Holafly & Nomad.

While this may sound a bit pricey but international roaming will be even more expensive.

So yeah, these travel eSIMs can be worth it.

In this guide, I will go over the travel eSIM options offered by Airalo, Holafly & Nomad. Let's go.

In a Hurry? A Quick Introduction

I will write about 14 eSIM options in Australia (and explain why they are included).

But if you want to quickly check out what the best eSIMs are for Australia without my analysis and explanations, here is an overview of the eSIMs covered in this guide:

Note: the promo codes mentioned above can also be used for regional and global eSIMs (they are not restricted to country-specific eSIMs only). In other news, the eSIM providers are in alphabetical order per grouping (Australia-only, regional & global) – not in order of preference (you would have to read the complete guide to find out which eSIMs I love the most for Australia 😜).

Let's truly get started, shall we?


eSIMs offered by the Australian Mobile Operators

Suppose you want to get the best service and reception available in Australia.

In that case, it is better to get a SIM card or travel eSIM from the local mobile operators, which in this case would be the Australian ones.

Not only will you not have to deal with latency, but you also get a higher priority on the network because you are a direct customer of the mobile operator instead of a roamer.

And with most travel eSIMs, you are roaming on the network(s) of the local mobile operator(s).

But that is not always the case – the slow speeds part, that is.

Some mobile operators throttle the speeds of prepaid customers because they want more people to get a postpaid plan.

Unfortunately, travelers cannot get postpaid plans – so one way to avoid throttling is by using a travel eSIM.

Yes – travel eSIMs sometimes have faster speeds than native prepaid customers because of throttling.

So, which Australian mobile operators offer eSIMs to prepaid customers?

Telstra, Optus, Vodafone Australia, ALDImobile Australia, Amaysim, Felix Mobile, Gomo Australia, Kogan Mobile Australia, Lebara Australia, & Woolworths Mobile offer eSIMs to prepaid customers.

Yeah… many Australian mobile operators embrace eSIM for prepaid customers too 🥳.

Besides them, you can also get eSIMs from Airalo (Yes! Go! eSIM), Holafly & Nomad.

One of the main advantages of getting a travel eSIM for Australia is that you can set up the eSIM before arriving in Australia and activate it upon landing and you do not have to deal with Australia's SIM card registration laws.

I have to mention that travel eSIMs will be more expensive than local eSIMs and SIM cards, but they are more convenient.

Moreover, I have plenty of experience with the eSIMs from Airalo, Holafly & Nomad, so I can vouch for them – so can many Phone Travel Wiz readers!

So let's go over what the travel eSIMs offer for Australia!


Airalo eSIMs for Australia (Yes! Go!)

If you have read any of my eSIM or SIM card buying guides before, then you know I am a big fan of Airalo.

Not only does Airalo have eSIMs for most countries (around 190 countries) of any eSIM platform, but they are also often one of the cheapest while offering fantastic service in terms of speeds and reception.

That is because Airalo usually partners up with the mobile operator with the best coverage, the fastest speeds, both, or even multiple operators.

That way, you get the best bang for your buck, I have to say.

In the case of Australia, the Yes! Go! eSIM uses the Optus network.

So, which Australia Yes! Go! eSIMs are available? You have these six options:

  1. Australia/Yes! Go! 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 4.50 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  2. Australia/Yes! Go! 2 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 8 USD
  3. Australia/Yes! Go! 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 9 USD
  4. Australia/Yes! Go! 5 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 12.50 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  5. Australia/Yes! Go! 10 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 20 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  6. Australia/Yes! Go! 20 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 40 USD

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 31st of January.

Airalo Yes! Go! eSIM Pros

Are there any (more) reasons why you should get the Yes! Go! eSIM? Yes, there are:

  • You can activate your Yes! Go! eSIM as soon as you land in Australia
  • You get full (up to 4G/LTE) access to Australia's second best mobile operator – Optus
  • Yes! Go! eSIMs are affordable (especially compared to roaming) and have generous data allowances
  • You do not have to worry about SIM card registration with the Yes! Go! eSIM, saving you time
  • Out of data? You can simply top up online on the Airalo website and not worry about language barriers when dealing with local agents

I could list many more pros, but these are the major ones.

Unfortunately, there are some cons to be aware of.

Airalo Yes! Go! eSIM Cons

Why should you not get the Yes! Go! eSIM?

  • The Australian mobile operators, including Optus itself, have much more generous data allowances
  • While you get access to Optus' network, the second best in Australia, your speeds will not be as fast as going with Optus itself because you will be roaming on their networks (and not be a native customer)
  • There is no 5G NR access with the Yes! Go! eSIM (yet)
  • You cannot call or text with the Yes! Go! eSIM (nor can you receive them – you get no (local) phone number)

Airalo Yes! Go! eSIM Overall Thoughts

Honestly, the Yes! Go! eSIM is fantastic.

The plans offered with Yes! Go! eSIMs are generous and affordable.

You get fast speeds and access to Optus network, without standing in queues or dealing with SIM card registration bureaucracy.

And everything, purchasing and topping up, can be done online on the Airalo website or Airalo app (downloading the app is recommended).

Unfortunately, you cannot call or text with the Yes! Go! eSIM, as it is a data-only eSIM.

But if you do wish to make actual calls, so not through apps like Whatsapp, consider or an Australian SIM card (but you will have to deal with the SIM card registration laws).


Nomad eSIMs for Australia

Nomad eSIMs Logo

Nomad is one of the eSIM players on the market that managed to grow quickly.

That is because it is one of the few premium eSIM players out there, often using multiple partners to bring you the best coverage and speeds out there.

As a result, Nomad is often (slightly) more expensive than Airalo.

But good people run the company.

For example, upon my recommendation, it started offering the Nordics regional eSIM – an eSIM that can be used in Denmark, Finland, Sweden & Norway.

And many more regional eSIMs are coming – I can promise you that!

In Australia, Nomad uses the Vodafone Australia network.

One, two, three, ten

You have the following ten options with Nomad for Australia:

  1. Australia 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 5 USD
  2. Australia 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 6 USD
  3. Australia 2 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 5 USD
  4. Australia 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 10 USD
  5. Australia 5 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 12 USD
  6. Australia 10 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 19 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  7. Australia 15 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 25 USD
  8. Australia 20 GB eSIM for 30 days (Truphone), costing 15 USD
  9. Australia 20 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 30 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  10. Australia 30 GB eSIM for 30 days (Truphone), costing 18 USD
  11. Australia 30 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 80 USD
  12. Australia 40 GB eSIM for 30 days (Truphone), costing 22 USD
  13. Australia 40 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 110 USD
  14. Australia 50 GB eSIM for 30 days (Truphone), costing 25 USD
  15. Australia 50 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 125 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only).

Nomad Travel eSIM Reviews by Phone Travel Wiz

Nomad Australia eSIM Pros

Are there any (more) reasons why you should get the Nomad Australia? Yes:

  • SIM card registration and bureaucracy? Skip that with the Nomad Australia eSIM, saving you time
  • You can activate your Nomad Australia eSIM as soon as you land in Australia
  • You get full (up to 4G/LTE) access to Vodafone Australia, allowing you to always have the best coverage and speeds
  • Nomad Australia eSIMs are affordable compared to roaming
  • Nomad offers the most options (five) and longest validity (30 days) of any travel eSIM in this guide
  • Multiple top-ups can be purchased when you are out of data or when your initial plan expires easily on the Nomad site or apps

But it is not all good news with Nomad though – there are some disadvantages.

Nomad Australia eSIM Cons

Why should you not get the Nomad Australia eSIM?

  • Australian mobile operators have much more generous data allowances
  • While you get access to Vodafone Australia, your speeds may not be as fast as going with the mobile operators directly because you will be roaming on their networks (and not be a native customer)
  • There is no 5G NR access with the Nomad Australia eSIM (yet)
  • You cannot call or text with the Nomad Australia eSIM (nor can you receive them – you get no (local) phone number)

Nomad Australia eSIM Overall Thoughts

Overall, the Nomad Australia eSIM is an excellent premium eSIM offering the most options and longest validity in this guide.

And you cannot make calls and send SMS with the Nomad Australia eSIM because it is a data-only eSIM.


Holafly eSIMs for Australia

My relationship with Holafly is quite funny.

I knew they existed when they offered travel SIM cards for the Spanish market only.

Then they pivoted to the global market, still offering travel SIM cards.

Eventually, they started offering travel eSIMs for the Spanish market only again before going global.

There are many travel eSIM providers nowadays – new ones pop up every week like mushrooms, so I did not bat an eye.

Until they did something revolutionary.

In 2022, Holafly started offering unlimited data plans for its eSIMs.

Phone Travel Wiz x Holafly Banner

And these unlimited data eSIMs can be used in various Asian countries, almost all European Union member states (except for Liechtenstein) & a few other countries, like Canada and the United States.

Fortunately, unlimited data eSIMs are available in Australia.

I say yet because Holafly's goal is to offer unlimited data plans for every country it covers: 100+ countries.

And I can tell you that I get positive emails multiple times a week from Phone Travel Wiz readers that have used the unlimited data plans in East- and Southeast Asia, Europe & North America; they love these eSIMs.

For now, you have only five Holafly Australia eSIM (which uses the Vodafone Australia network (as well), by the way):

Vodafone Logo

  1. Australia unlimited data eSIM for 5 days, costing 19 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  2. Australia unlimited data eSIM for 7 days, costing 27 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  3. Australia unlimited data eSIM for 10 days, costing 34 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  4. Australia unlimited data eSIM for 15 days, costing 47 USD
  5. Australia unlimited data eSIM for 20 days, costing 54 USD

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only).

Holafly Australia eSIMs
See the list above for up-to-date prices and allowances. The figures in this image may be outdated.

Even better, you can get 5% off each and any Holafly purchase (so it does not have to be the Australia eSIM) when you use code PHONETRAVELWIZ – fantastic, right?

Holafly Travel eSIM Reviews by Phone Travel Wiz

Holafly Australia eSIM Pros

So, why should you get the Holafly Australia eSIM? Well, because of the following:

  • Holafly Australia eSIMs are affordable compared to roaming
  • You get full (up to 4G/LTE) access to Vodafone Australia's network
  • Unlike going with Vodafone Australia directly, you do not have to worry about SIM card registration because it is unnecessary
  • You can activate your Holafly Australia eSIM as soon as you land in Australia
  • The Holafly Australia eSIM offers the most data

Holafly Australia eSIM Cons

Why should you not get the Holafly Australia eSIM?

  • You cannot call or text with the Holafly Australia eSIM (nor can you receive them – you get no (local) phone number)
  • Australian mobile operators, including Vodafone Australia, have much more generous data allowances
  • While you get full (4G/LTE) access to Vodafone Australia's network, your speeds may not be as fast as going with Vodafone Australia directly because you will be roaming on their networks (and not be a native customer)
  • You cannot top up your Holafly Australia eSIM – you would have to buy another eSIM if you need more data
  • There is no 5G NR access with the Holafly Australia eSIM (yet)

Holafly Australia eSIM Overall Thoughts

While you have only two options for the Holafly Australia eSIM, it is the most generous eSIM (in terms of data) in this guide.

And the price for the Holafly Australia eSIM is low compared to expensive Pay As You Go roaming rates for Australia.

But it still is not cheap.


Airalo Discover(+) eSIM (formerly Discover Global)

Airalo Discover+ eSIM

Airalo was probably the first eSIM provider to introduce a global eSIM – it was called Discover Global.

Discover Global eSIM Airalo

I have had decent to good experiences with that eSIM, but I felt it could improve.

Such as extending the validity of most plans (maximum used to be 180 days) and having 5G NR access in popular destinations (like many regional Airalo eSIMs do nowadays, even country-specific ones).

In August 2023, Airalo made a radical change to its global eSIM.

Until then, the eSIM could be used in about 85 countries – always up to 4G/LTE (with some networks on 3G only).

This eSIM was powered by FL1 Telecom Liechtenstein (network name can be Mobilkom (Liechtenstein) at times).

This mobile operator worked well in Europe and some Asian countries, but it was often one of the slowest performing (Airalo eSIMs).

Now, Airalo's global eSIM is called Discover(+).

Airalo Discover eSIM
© Airalo
Airalo Discover+ eSIM
© Airalo

It is powered by eSIM Go (which is basically Drei Austria).

eSIM Go Logo

Three (3) Logo
© Three (3)

The difference between the Airalo Discover and Airalo Discover+ eSIMs is that the latter has calling and texting functionalities (with an Austrian +43 phone number).

Because of this, Discover+ eSIMs can be up to 20 USD more expensive than regular Discover eSIMs.

For the previous Airalo Discover Global eSIMs, you paid the same prices as the Discover+ eSIMs for worse availability (85+ countries instead of 125+) and no calling or texting at all.

So… it is an upgrade 😎.

Not only that, but you (finally) get 5G NR access in quite some countries (55+)1 as well.

1 click here, press select the variant you want & click on network to see which network(s) allow for 5G NR access. You often have access to multiple local networks, but not all have 5G NR access (and some do not even give you 4G/LTE access)

Airalo Discover(+) eSIM Network Availability (3G-4G-5G)

Moreover, the most expensive option is now valid for a whole year (365 days) instead of 180 days.

The Airalo Discover(+) eSIM can be used in the following 125+ countries:

Interested in using the Airalo Discover(+) eSIM in another country or countries? Read my Airalo Global eSIM review (tested in numerous countries and counting).

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 Japan) still refer to the Discover Global one and show the old eSIM image instead of Discover+.

1 with 5G NR access

If you get this eSIM from SimOptions, which I recommend, you will pay 39.90 USD.

The main issue I have with the AIS eSIM2FLY Global eSIM is its short validity.

Making it hard to call it an actual global eSIM… unless you can somehow visit 140+ countries within 15 days – something not even I can do🧐.

Still, it is a relatively affordable global eSIM covering 140+ countries… with 5G NR access!

Overview of the Best eSIMs for Australia (Airalo vs. Holafly vs. Nomad)

In this guide, I went over various eSIMs Australia.

Below is an overview of my recommendation order:
