The validity period of an eSIM should be considered when booking your holiday.
To make it as easy as possible the validity period extends for 11 months prior to activation of the eSIM, so that you do not have to stress about when to install.
Activation of the eSIM means that it is installed on the phone and you have started to use data.
The good thing here is that you can install and do the complicated bit before going away.
Data will only start being used when you arrive at your destination.
This way you are free to install eSIMs and they will be there ready for when you travel and automatically start using data.
