This summer we spent almost a month traveling in Europe. We always purchase data packages for our cellular phones before we leave Canada – this is expensive (e.g., $150/month per device for 800 MB of data).
This year we supplemented our cellular data plans with a Skyroam WiFi hotspot capable of providing WiFi and unlimited data to five devices. Here are five reasons why I wish we had used a Skyroam WiFi hotspot sooner.
Five Reasons We Love Travelling With a Skyroam WiFi Hotspot
As I mentioned, data packages can be expensive. With the Skyroam hotspot, you can connect up to five devices for a flat fee of as low as $8/day in 100+ countries.
If you can pick-up a signal, you will have access to WiFi with a push of a button – at the airport, in the car, on the train, at the hotel, and on the hiking trail. There is no need to figure out passwords, log onto new networks, or hunt around for a decent WiFi signal when you have a Skyroam WiFi hotspot. Plus there is WiFi service in 100+ countries.
We spend a lot of time hiking and biking when we travel, and it is reassuring to know that five devices are available for use.
Free WiFi in hotels, airports, and cafes isn’t secure. The Skyroam WiFi hotspot is password protected, so your data is safe.
5. Social Media Sharing
With Instagram Live and other live-sharing platforms, you need to be connected to reach your followers, friends, and family. The Skyroam WiFi hotspot makes this easy.
Travel Tips – Skyroam WiFi Hotspot
- Travelers can choose to purchase a Skyroam hotspot and buy 24-hour global WiFi passes, or rent a Skyroam hotspot with global WiFi. If you don’t travel much, you may prefer to rent the Skyroam hotspot for a single trip.
- In late 2017, Skyroam launched the Skyroam Solis 4G LTE hotspot. I’m about to try the upgraded device in South America. Visit the Skyroam website to learn more and order your personal hotspot – the Traveler’s Holiday Gift Set (4G LTE hotspot and power bank with a protective travel case plus five days unlimited global WiFi) is currently 20% off.

The Skyroam WiFi hotspot was provided for review purposes. We loved using it during our European vacation, and will happily pay the daily rate to use the WiFi hotspot on our future trips.
