Everyone should travel with a MiFi these days.
Well… at least those people that travel a fair amount and like to be / need to be connected to the internet often.
If you don’t have an unlocked smart phone (like myself) then honestly look into getting yourself a MiFi for your travels. Maybe you don’t travel enough to justify buying one? Then you can also rent them from sites like Droam.nl
On my last trip through Europe I tested out a Droam MiFi after hearing about it from my friend Dave and fell in love. Having a MiFi with a set price for a set amount of GBs was extremely convenient and made me happy that I wasn’t constantly worrying about how high my phone bill might be when I got home. (Still remembering that time my bill was $1,300 after Iceland…).
Also it was extremely convenient and could give wifi to 5 devices at a time so not only could I be connected on the go on my phone but also when I needed to get work done on my computer I didn’t need to go searching for the nearest Coffee Shop for a wifi connection. I also instantly gained a lot of friends who liked me for my mobile internet.
Using my Droam in Venice to stay connected.
On this trip I traveled by train from Spain through France to Italy. I used the Droam on my entire journey and except for some very rural areas I practically had a connection the whole time. I was pretty amazed by it and quite pleased.
Droams operate in over 50 countries and the company is based in the Netherlands. 36 of those countries are in Europe and as you may have guessed it that is where it tends to work best. It will also work in Australia, New Zealand, the US and South Africa, with a growing list of other places. However for each of those places you need a new device set up differently.
Charging the Droam with my computer as I use it on a train through Europe.
I honestly really enjoyed having the Droam and was sad when I had to give it up and mail it back at the end of my time in Europe. I would definitely look into getting one again for my next trip to Europe.
The Droam was given to me complimentary free for a month during my travels. All opinions and views expressed as always are my own, I truly do love that sucker and stand by everything I said about it.
