Why We Started Traveling With A Wi-Fi Hotspot

One of our latest gadgets that we ensure to take with us whenever we travel outside Canada is our Skyroam Hotspot.  The hotspot picks up the local network in over 100 countries so it makes traveling so much easier these days- no more searching and reloading SIM cards or searching for Wi-Fi in new countries. 

Have you ever booked an Airbnb or set a time to meet up with someone overseas only to find out that your flight isn’t on time or you missed the bus stop you should have gotten off at and won’t be making it anymore?  We’ve certainly been there on more than one occasion and we spent tons of time scrambling to find free Wi-Fi anywhere we could.  Now there’s no more scrambling required with the easy to use Skyroam Hotspot. 

Quick and Easy:

Whenever you need internet, simply turn the unit on and press start and voila 24hrs of internet usage.  One of the best features is that there are no overage fees or extra data roaming charges, something I know we’ve all been hit with while traveling abroad. 

If you find yourself needing more 24hr day passes than you originally thought, topping up is easy.  Simply connect your phone through your hotspot and purchase from there or if you’ve already run out simply connect over a computer through your personal login!

Multiple Connections:

We love the Skyroam Hotspot because you can connect up to 5 devices at one time, so no need to fight over who gets to use the internet.  It’s great for us because we can both work on our businesses from our own laptops as well as keep in touch with friends and family back home.  Not to mention it’s pretty easy to make new friends when you let them use your personal Wi-Fi for a couple of hours.


If you still aren’t sure if this is beneficial for you- consider renting the unit first instead of buying.  You can either pick the unit up (depending on your location) or else have it mailed to you.  But we promise you- once you use it once you won’t want to give it back.

If you'd like to try one out you can go directly through to their website here!  And you help us out in the meantime too.

Note: We only promote products that we trust and would use ourselves!
