I saw the sponsored ads in social media, luckily the first of various. I downloaded the app as soon as I landed at the airport. The whole process was straightforward & very easy even for non-tech savvy I’d say. So the user-friendliness is great with their UI/UX. My family & I went for Asia trip so my favourite feature is definitely the regional plan; skip all the tedious & hassle tasks.

Easy and practical experience

Easy to hire, track data usage and decent speeds in the US. Except for a specific situation where not having phone and text services was an issue, this is far better and cost-effective than buying a US sim card from a carrier. Highly recommend!

Worked really well and was super easy

This worked really well and was super easy. Definitely beats trying to activate a Sim in a strange language while jet-lagged at an airport.

Excellent App

Upon arriving in Barcelona, Spain I started my Nomad connection. No hiccups, just plain access to my text, WhatsApp… etc. One little problem created by a conflict between my expired purchase and the new SIM, I contacted the help support and… the team could not be more professional, dedicated, knowledgeable. The communication was excellent and prompt. I recommend NOMAD with the certainty that it will make your life easier.

Fantastic flexibility and savings

After getting stung in Turkey for £60 roaming fees I decided to liok for alternatives and found Nomad. I have just tried them on my trip to Uzbekistan and they were fantastic, a couple of minutes to set up, no physical SIM to swap and have to look after your original and dirt cheap. Definitely one to keep and use again.

Great way to stay connected

Got two for different regions, first one installed quickly and worked as soon as I landed. Second one I had done something silly on my phone and helpdesk was patient helpful and friendly to sort it all out quickly. Excellent product with excellent service

Easy to use and affordable roaming

Having worked in the telecom world most of my life and understanding what hassle it was to either buy foreign sims or alternatively buy expensive roaming packages I am very pleased to see Nomad. My wife and I used Nomad on our trip to Spain and it worked perfectly. ESim is the future.
