WiFi on the go is pretty important for most families nowadays, never mind for bloggers. As a family you may not allow tablets and phones while away but for us it is very important to have WiFi while on a family holiday.
Why? Well we still have to be able to access our emails and run our family business away from home. I also like to be able to access emails for this family travel blog so I don’t fall behind with the work it needs! We have found that sometimes the hotel WiFi or campsite WiFi does not cut it when you are looking to get some work done.
That is why we invested in an Huawei Dongle for wi fi on the go. Check here for up to date prices
How To Get Wifi On Holiday
We bought our unlocked Huawei dongle from the Amazon website. At first we purchased a Data Sim from EE. However, we later found out it wasn’t going to work abroad, which meant we had to look for an alternative.
This is when we purchased a data sim from 3. They have their Feel At Home destinations which means you can use your UK data in any of the stated countries. We have tried it several times in different countries now and it has worked great. It is perfect for holiday WiFi. Especially when some hotels and other types of accommodation sometimes still charge for you to use their WiFi.
Since realizing how well it worked, we decided to get a contract with 3, so we could use it whenever for a set monthly fee. It really has become a valuable piece of kit to take with us for internet on holiday.
We find it really does come in handy, and it is very portable. It can fit in your pocket or handbag! The signal and speed always seems to be good and we haven’t had any problems so far (touch wood).
On a previous trip we also rented a TEP wireless which arrived at our house pre-trip. We then posted it back a the end of our trip.
Do you use any WiFi dongles when away or do you stick to using the accommodation WiFi? Let us know below in the comments if you have a travel wifi dongle or not.
