Revolut Offers eSIM with up to 20GB Data Volume in the Banking App

Revolut introduces its eSIM with global data plans in Germany, enabling customers to surf abroad and avoid roaming fees. Activation is done via the Revolut app, eliminating the need for a physical SIM card. Ultra subscribers receive 3 GB/month globally. New eSIM users until May 1, 2024, get 100 MB free. The move aims to simplify travel connectivity and reduce expenses.




Revolut is now bringing its own eSIM including global data plans to Germany. With them, customers could also surf abroad with mobile data and thus avoid additional roaming fees. Neobank customers who have an eSIM-enabled device would now have access to the offer, regardless of the subscription they choose.

Once activated, customers can top up data at any time via the Revolut app; a physical SIM card is not required. By connecting the eSIM, customers could use the app as usual without using up their mobile data quota. If a customer is in a country without their own mobile data access, they can still access their Revolut app and use all products and functions – including topping up your data.

Revolut Ultra customers permanently receive 3 GB of data volume worldwide

Customers with an Ultra subscription would also benefit permanently from a new advantage and receive 3 GB of mobile data volume per month for worldwide use. All customers in Germany who activate their new eSIM by May 1, 2024 also received a free introductory offer of 100 MB of data volume worldwide. The costs for mobile data use abroad have increased in recent years, and some EU mobile networks no longer allow their users to use their own mobile data volume in Great Britain.

“At Revolut, we have always relied on technological innovation to simplify our customers’ lives in the most important areas of their everyday lives. This is exactly where the new eSIM comes in. It enables smooth access to your data volume on the go, whether you are traveling for private or business purposes. This eliminates the familiar annoyances such as high prices or the need to organize a physical SIM card beforehand. In our view, this is a game-changer for people who like to travel and want to keep the expense to a minimum,” said Wiktor Stopa, Head of Growth for Western Europe and Germany at Revolut.

With the introduction of eSIMs, the fintech company is supplementing its existing lifestyle offering around the topics of experiences and travel. So far, for example, it has been possible to book access to lounges at over 1,000 airports worldwide as well as hotel accommodation and leisure activities on vacation in various locations within the Revolut app. In addition, customers of the Premium, Metal and Ultra subscriptions are covered by medical and dental emergency protection when traveling.

According to the provider, eSIMs are compatible with most 4G / 5G Apple and Android smartphones and can be installed without additional apps or physical SIM cards. To use the new offer, customers would need to have the latest version of the Revolut app (10.14).

Prices per location for 1GB are said to start at 1 euro, with over 100 countries to choose from. Several data plans are available – these range from 1 GB to 20 GB. Customers would also have the option to choose between regional or global data plans to cover multiple countries with one plan.
