For planning purposes, does it make sense to purchase an eSIM for iPhone in U.S. before traveling to Switzerland for a 2 week trip? If so, can you recommend a reputable online source? Thanks in advance.
Just how much do you think you will need to use your phone while there?
unknown and my daughter is living there
we would like to look at maps,and travel info while traveling
I bought one there and it was, as I recall, reasonably priced for a lot of capacity. The store (Swisscom) installed it and ensured I was fully operational before I walked out.
As for maps and even finding your location on the map using GPS, you don't even need a sim.
Just download a free mapping program (I like maps.me) in advance along with the country map, and it will work fine just using your phone's GPS.
Even if you do get a sim, the above will save you a lot of data/money.
Thank you for your ideas and recommendations
The Zurich airport has a Sunrise and a Swisscom store.
