In today’s world it’s increasingly important to us to stay connected to the internet while travelling and the reasons are endless; we want to stay connected to family and friends, check for the best hotels, sites, restaurants in a new location, GPS to help us get there, or stay in touch with work. To avoid expensive overseas data charges on your phone, it’s good to rely on Wi-Fi. However, Wi-Fi is not always available, or reliable. The best solution is to bring a travel router. Multiple devices can connect to the web as the router creates its own private wireless network. It turns a public hotspot into a Wi-Fi network that is private and secure. Most travel routers come with USB ports, so they also double as a charger or allow you to connect to a portable hard drive in order to stream media files or share files like photos or videos to people you’re travelling with. Choose a travel router that is compact in size and has a built-in cellular modem.
