But it's definitely a great way to stay connected like you are back home. Still, if mucking about with your phone is too intimidating.
Always check your hotel’s WiFi before you leave for a trip. And it’s not as simple as just checking the hotel’s website to see if in-room WiFi is an option. Your best bet is to call the hotel and speak to the front desk.
If you don’t have the time or money to buy a hotspot, don’t forget that majority of the cafés around the world offer free WiFi to customers. In addition to cafes you should also try local libraries, museums and malls.
Go forth, explore the world this festive season, and make sure the internet is always with you!
