Georgia: Best Tourist eSIMs Reviewed (2024)

Are you planning to visit Georgia soon and looking for the best travel eSIM to stay connected while exploring the country?

There are many eSIM providers (re)selling plans and packages for Georgia, but not all are equal.

Some offer unlimited data, while others include a phone number for local, regional, or global use.

Some have blazing-fast speeds, while others have extended validity.

Whatever you need, there will be an eSIM for your liking.

In the case of Georgia, I recommend one of these eSIM providers, which I have tested in numerous countries on multiple continents:

  • Airalo
  • Alosim
  • Holafly

Airalo was the first eSIM store launched in 2019 when barely any phone supported eSIMs.

Now, it is the largest eSIM provider and covers more than 200 countries and territories (some being “duplicates”).

Airalo was the first eSIM I ever installed on my dad's phone (I did not have an eSIM-compatible device back then 🗿).

And it is also the the provider I have tested in the most countries so far (compared to other eSIMs).

Anyway, Airalo has a thing for giving each country's eSIM a unique name (which I love).

Airalo Kargi Mobile (Georgia) eSIM

For Georgia, it is Kargi Mobile.

As highlighted earlier, there are five Kargi Mobile eSIMs to choose from, which are shown below:

  1. Georgia/Kargi Mobile 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 5.50 USD
  2. Georgia/Kargi Mobile 2 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 10 USD
  3. Georgia/Kargi Mobile 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 13.50 USD
  4. Georgia/Kargi Mobile 5 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 20 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  5. Georgia/Kargi Mobile 10 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 35 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). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 8th of March.

Airalo Discover(+) eSIM

Lastly, we have the Airalo's global Discover and Discover+ eSIMs.

These eSIMs can be used in Georgia and 120+ other countries on each continent.

Previously, Airalo's Discover Global eSIM was kind of… meh.

I have had a decent experience with that eSIM, but I felt it could improve.

The new Discover(+) eSIMs have a maximum validity of 365 days (instead of 180) and can use 5G NR in most destinations.

Moreover, the + variant gives you an Austrian (+43) phone number.

As a result, the Discover+ eSIM can be up to 20 USD more expensive than the Discover eSIM, but the benefits are worth it, in my opinion (I have the + variant installed on my phone).

These Airalo Discover(+) eSIMs are available:

  1. Discover 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 9 USD
  2. Discover+ 1 GB (with 10 minutes and 10 SMS) eSIM for 7 days, costing 15 USD
  3. Discover 2 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 17 USD
  4. Discover+ 2 GB (with 20 minutes and 20 SMS) eSIM for 15 days, costing 27 USD
  5. Discover 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 24 USD
  6. Discover+ 3 GB (with 30 minutes and 30 SMS) eSIM for 30 days, costing 36 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  7. Discover 5 GB eSIM for 60 days, costing 35 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  8. Discover+ 5 GB (with 50 minutes and 50 SMS) eSIM for 60 days, costing 50 USD
  9. Discover 10 GB eSIM for 180 days, costing 59 USD
  10. Discover+ 10 GB (with 100 minutes and 100 SMS) eSIM for 180 days, costing 79 USD
  11. Discover 20 GB eSIM for 365 days, costing 69 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  12. Discover+ 20 GB (with 200 minutes and 200 SMS) eSIM for 365 days, costing 89 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 8th of March.

For an entire list of countries where the eSIM can be used, you should check out my ongoing Airalo Discover+ eSIM review.

Although the map below may be helpful if you know your world map well.

In every country I visit where I test country-specific Airalo eSIMs, I also try out its Discover+ eSIM (if it can be used there).

So you better check it out now and then to see if I wrote about the country/countries you plan to visit and read about the eSIM's performance in said country, as it is not always perfect.

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

Alosim is an eSIM provider by AffinityClick, which is known for its Hushed app (“Temporary & Second Phone Number App for Wifi, Data Calling & Texting”, as it calls it (8 million+ downloads)).

Hushed Screenshot

It took some time and effort (from my end), but Alosim finally agreed to bundle its products.

What do I mean by that?

With any Alosim eSIM purchase, even country-specific ones with just 1 GB of data or a regional one with 10 GB of data, you will get a Hushed redemption code, giving you up to 30 international minutes or 50 international SMS.

AffinityClick offers American (+1), British (+44) & Canadian (+1) phone numbers from over 300 area codes (but only +1 phone numbers are part of this combo deal).

While it is looking to expand its offering in terms of phone numbers, you cannot get a Georgian phone number at this point due to local regulations.

However, this makes Alosim the only eSIM provider I know of that gives you a phone number for each eSIM purchase.

Additionally, you do not have to switch back to your base SIM card in case you need to make international calls (and will save a lot on international call costs, which are often overly expensive).

Anyway, let's talk about Alosim's eSIM offering.

It has eSIMs for over 170 countries, including Georgia.

Remember that you can use code PHONETRAVELWIZ for 5% off any Holafly purchase (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want).

Holafly is probably the eSIM provider with the most extensive coverage in terms of unlimited data eSIMs.

Yes, Holafly has unlimited data eSIMs for Georgia and most countries it supports, which is over 160 countries.

Of which about 100 have unlimited data eSIMs.

One thing that you should note already, and I will repeat it later, is that the prices of the Georgia eSIM and the Europe eSIM are exactly the same.

So, if you plan on visiting multiple supported countries during your trip (the list will be provided later), you should get the Europe eSIM instead of the Georgia one + another country-specific one to save a lot of money.

But I got ahead of myself – you have two variants for Georgia:

  1. Georgia 3.5 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 27 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  2. Georgia 7.5 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 47 USD

Overview of the Best eSIMs for Georgia

I reviewed a handful of eSIM providers that offer numerous eSIMs to be used in Georgia, neighboring countries & even globally.

However, Nomad's eSIM has better coverage (up to 135+ instead of 120+).

And do not forget to use one of these discount codes for extra savings:
