A WiFi rental service, also called a WiFi hotspot rental service or an internet rental service, is a small device that basically lets you access the internet when you’re travelling abroad. What the device does is connect you to the local services in the country you’re visiting, thus allowing you to connect to the Internet. Considering how many tourists actually look for free or cheap WiFi services abroad, a WiFi rental service becomes quite an attractive option if you’re planning to travel abroad.
When you rent a WiFi hotspot, remember that you will have to pay for it on a daily basis, not monthly or annually (that last one might not even make sense if you think about it). Furthermore, since you have to pay for the days you end up renting it whether you use it or not, I would recommend making use of it daily. The fees change on the basis of what plan you use; you have basically three such plans to choose from: you can go for an European plan if you’re travelling to European countries like UK and France, WiFiaccess for a single country like Canada wifi egg access worldwide lastly, which will generally include about 190 different countries.
There are many upsides to using a WiFi rental service, with the main ones explained below:
- You can use it just about anywhere – since the device will be next to you (well as long as you take it with you – but why wouldn’t you?) you’ll be able to access the internet from just about anywhere – you won’t have to carry your feet down to the hotel’s lobby or search for public spaces with free WiFi access anymore.
- It’s faster – compared to the free WiFi services provided by hotels, restaurants and other public spaces, the internet speed that the rental provides is much faster (and with a good reason, since you’re paying for it). No more lagging video calls back home or waiting for the download of larger files to be completed.
- You can connect multiple devices at no extra cost – an internet rental service usually allows you to connect around about five devices to it at no extra cost. Since the speed won’t also drop or anything, this is quite a sweet deal – and if you think about it, you can get a single rental service to use with your travel partners, which helps to cut down costs significantly.
- You save time – since you won’t be looking for places with WiFi access for free anymore, you’ll save a considerable amount of time if you stop to think about it. A lot of people actually force themselves to drag themselves to the hotel lobby at night just for the internet services, so this is quite a blessing if you’re also one of those people.
