#TravelTuesday - Must Have Travel Gadget

Skyroam Tanvii.com 3

While traveling, up until recently, it was either I had to snoop around looking for "free" wifi connection around the city, wait till we got back to the hotel or pay a hefty network roaming charges in order to use data internationally. I had been on a look for an affordable as well as reliable wifi hotspot which I could use worldwide without having to recharge and reconnect over and over again. I was excited to find Skyroam. You can use it worldwide, connect up to five devices, for a flat fee per 24 hours.

I am always skeptical of anything that sounds too good to be true but after reading the reviews, I was convinced to at least give it a try. As you know, we recently got back from Iceland (and Paris!) and I since I had already done my research and workout the itinerary, I knew it would be difficult to find wifi in Iceland, let alone free wifi. We needed internet for directions, food stops, gas, etc. So, I figured this was the right time to try Skyroam.

I was pleasantly surprised to have steady wifi connection even in the remote-isolated areas of Iceland. It worked great for navigation purposes. My over all experience with Skyroam was good. The only issue I had was with its battery life. It didn't last more than 4 to 5 hours, but since we were on a road trip, we were able to charge it frequently, but while I was in Paris (on foot) I had to carry a back-up charging pack. Nonetheless, I would rather pay a flat-rate to use this hotspot than pay the exorbitant fee than network's international data charges. 

So here's the bottom line, you can either buy the unit to own for $124.99, which currently is on a promotion for $99.99 with 3 days of unlimited usage, or you can rent a unit for $9.95 per day. If you travel frequently, owning a unit would make more sense but if you take one international trip a year, renting might be the way to go. You can get a visual feel for the device and how it operates in the video below: Hit Play!

  1. Thanks with the post. I come to an agreement that To crew Manufacturing plant has a quality basics. I ordered multiple flared smaller skirts inside regular To crew store not too long ago and they've been great changes to this closet. The fluorescents papaya is definitely fabulous if you need bright hues. I normally get compliments while i wear this specific. I moreover found these kind of skirts look great as well as tights and also boots from the winter, and so i have genuinely had the means to use them a large amount
