If you can’t imagine going off the grid and completely ditching the internet during your travels, you’ll find yourself looking for ways to score free Wi-Fi in a new country. These simple hacks will help you connect to the internet with ease.

Great Spots

Certain public spaces, including airports, libraries, malls, and popular fast food joints, usually come equipped with free Wi-Fi you can use with ease.

Local SIM Card

If you’re looking for a way to go online in case of an emergency, buying a local SIM card is a good idea. You can also use it to share a hotspot with your fellow travelers, but never forget your data is extremely limited.

Ask Questions             

Many cafés and restaurants feature a sign with their Wi-Fi password but feel free to ask the waiter to share it with you if that’s not the case.

Useful Apps

You can also try finding free Wi-Fi in your local area by using popular apps such as WiFi Finder and WiFi Map.

Hotel Wi-Fi

If nothing else works, you can always score Wi-Fi at your accommodation. Put it to some good use, and do all of your planning ahead while you can still go online without any hiccups.
