If you were to make me list down 4 gadgets I can’t live without when traveling, it would be my laptop, my phone, our camera and a travel pocket wifi. Staying connected wherever I go is something very important for me especially when it’s only Verniece and I travelling. It’s important that we always know where our next exact destination is, how to get there and ofcourse, update our social media accounts and immediately respond to work emails from home. We’ve experienced buying a sim abroad only to be fooled by the “unlimited” written on the packaging when we start connecting all our gadgets or to lose credits when we need it the most. Buying a travel wifi on the destination itself can be quite tricky to especially when we take red eye flights and arrive to the airport stall closed and we would have to resort to buying a sim the next day. To tell you honestly, it was only on this Euro trip we took that we found a solution to all those problems and it’s the SMART TRAVEL WIFI. Here are 3 reasons why you should rent this:
1. Getting one is so easy. All you have to do is book a device online and it will delivered to your door step (if you live in Metro Manila but 150 pesos for regional) for free! You just have to input how many days you will be abroad, alittle more information and tadah!
2. It’s cheap, fast and you can connect up to 5 devices. With the device, you don’t need to worry about running out of credits when you have to turn on your personal hotspot (remember that most sims don’t allow this! Your sim becomes limited when you do.) or the net to slow down when you start sharing it. Plus, it’s just 390 pesos a day!
3. You can connect anywhere you travel to in the world. The device will work in over 100 countries. What makes this more convenient too is that when you go to more than one country, you won’t have to change sims or devices anymore. You just turn it on and you’re connected!
How do I return it? Via courier. It will be picked up on the same address it was delivered to.
I’m not a Smart subscriber, how’s that? BOOOOO why haven’t you made the switch?? hahaha Kidding aside, everyone can avail of it! :)
How early should I book the device? Give it atleast a week before you leave for the airport!
How soon can I get it? It will usually take 3 business days for people living in Metro Manila and 5 business days for people who live outside of it but rest assured that it will arrive 1-2 days before your trip.
