Traveling to Abu Dhabi with the eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and sits off the mainland on an island in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. The UAE has 7 Emirates, Abu Dhabi being the largest of them covering approximately 90% of the total land of the emirates. 

Abu Dhabi has a sub-tropical climate, with high temperatures during the summer and very little rain. Temperatures never drop below 20°C but can rise to 38°C – 46°C during July and August. There is air-conditioning everywhere for you to cool off or to stay comfortable. Shopping malls, restaurants, indoor parks, museums and hotels all offer it. 

There is no law about a dress code in Abu Dhabi but you will see signs at shopping malls to dress respectfully, such as covering shoulders and knees. As long as you avoid walking the streets in revealing clothing or a bikini you should be fine. Women are allowed to wear a bathing suit or bikini at the pool or beach. On your excursions you can wear comfortable clothing, like shorts, summer dresses or skirts. Topless or nude sunbathing are prohibited. 

During Ramadan it is recommended to dress more conservatively. 

Since September 2020 the government of Abu Dhabi confirmed that an alcohol license is no longer required for consumers. You can drink alcohol at designated places and in the privacy of your hotel room. To avoid issues with the police you should avoid being drunk in public, acting out loud or harassing people.

How to stay connected during your trip to Abu Dhabi

eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE

While you are on your amazing trip you will want to share your pictures and impressions with family & friends, or need to stay connected via phone, email, chats and social postings. 

With the use of eSIM you can roam around the world and avoid high roaming costs. You could purchase a physical SIM card in the country you are traveling to, but you need to find a location for a distributor. At the end of your trip you will most likely throw the SIM card away and generate more waste. 

eSIM offers you not only cost and environmental benefits. You can activate eSIM directly on your device without having to drive to a store or wait for a SIM card to be mailed. You no longer have to figure out the correct SIM card size or struggle to insert it into the device.

With the use of eSIM you no longer have to swap out multiple SIM cards if you want  to change plans. You can simply do that in your settings, directly on your device. 

With an eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE you will be covered in over 60 countries and never have to worry about running out of data.

How does an eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE work and how do you get it? 

First, check if your system is compatible with eSIM. 

Download the Red Bull MOBILE Data app to see if your device is eSIM compatible. You can also check if your smartphone is supported by looking up the settings:

iOS devices: Go to Settings > Mobile Data or Cellular Data, if you have the Add Mobile Plan or Add Data Plan option, your iPhone supports eSIMs.

Supported devices include iPhone XS, XR and newer models

Android devices: Go to Settings > Connections > SIM card manager. If you have the “Add mobile plan” option, your smartphone supports eSIMs.

The majority of newer Android smartphones are supported including the Samsung Galaxy S20 or newer models, Google Pixel 3 or newer models, Huawei P40 and many more.

Once you have checked if your system is compatible you will then set up your eSIM.

Start the app and follow the instructions to set up an eSIM on your smartphone.

After your eSIM is set up you will select your destination and your bundle.

Choose the plan that suits you best and buy your eSIM card directly in the app. The first 100MB are completely free of charge!

When your plan is activated you can roam the world and surf like a local.

Your physical SIM will stay connected and your Red Bull MOBILE eSIM will too — they work simultaneously. You can select which of the two SIMs you want to use for data connectivity in your settings.

You can switch between different subscription profiles on your device by simply selecting the desired profile in the device’s settings. This change can be made without a physical SIM card swap.

This is a data-only plan, so there’s no need for a new phone number.

The eSIM from Red Bull MOBILE is very easy to use, but if you have questions or experience technical issues you can reach us by email or our 24 hour chat support on our website. We’re here to help.

When you’ve used up 80% of your data, we’ll let you know — so you won’t get stuck without any data. You’ll get another notification once your data has finally run out.

Using eSIM with the Red Bull MOBILE Data App for roaming offers several advantages compared to traditional physical SIM cards. Data roaming has become much easier, more efficient and cost-effective with the use of eSIM.
