If you're looking for an affordable way to use your cellphone when travelling in Spain, you can get a Guay Mobile eSIM from only US$4.50 (approximately €4.20) for 7 days usage.

To get a Guay Mobile eSIM, you'll need to have an eSIM-compatible device such as the iPhone 11, Galaxy S20, Pixel 3 or later devices. You can then order your Guay Mobile eSIM through the Airalo app with instant delivery direct to your phone.

Once you've ordered your Guay Mobile eSIM, it will only activate when your cellphone actually connects to a supported network in Spain. This means the validity period will only begin when you actually land in Spain and turn your cellphone on.

Your Guay Mobile eSIM works with the dual-SIM function on most modern smartphones. This means you can use your regular SIM card alongside the Guay Mobile eSIM (e.g. to receive incoming phone calls and text messages on your normal phone number).

Alternatives to Guay Mobile

The main disadvantage of Guay Mobile is the fact you're getting a data-only service on the eSIM. You will not get a local phone number in Spain when you're using the Guay Mobile eSIM in your phone.

If you'd like to call or text whilst you're travelling in Spain, you'll need to use your normal SIM card instead (on which international roaming fees may apply). Alternatively, you can side-step these charges by making your calls through WhatsApp or other similar apps.

If you're looking for a more fully featured SIM card with a local phone number in Spain (starting with +34), you could consider getting a regular prepaid SIM card upon arrival instead. This will involve some additional hassle (e.g. queuing up at the airport to get your SIM card, a registration process for the SIM card, etc) but it can be preferable and better suited for longer-term use in Spain.

Guay Mobile Coverage

If you're using a Guay Mobile eSIM, you'll have access to 4G mobile coverage in Spain. This is provided by the following partner networks:

There's no international roaming available on a Guay Mobile eSIM. Therefore, you won't be able to use it outside of Spain. If you're planning to visit multiple countries on your trip, you may need to get a separate eSIM for the other countries you visit.
