Here’s A New More Affordable Way to Stay Connected to 4G When Traveling Abroad

Discovered this super cool service at the recent Philippine Travel Mart held a few weeks ago…. an overseas unlimited wifi router rental servicee called Flytpack.

Staying connected is an absolute must for me, so whenever I travel abroad, and it has been my habit to buy a local 4G sim card upon arriving at my destination. You see, I’m not really a fan of data roaming, since I’ve had unpleasant experiences in setting it up aside from its expensive daily charges. 

I got super curious about Flytpack’s service and actually felt a bit skeptical (at first), so I immediately checked their website to know how it works.

Flytpack is an overseas unlimited wifi router rental service that you can conveniently use abroad. It offers fixed daily rates (which you buy pre-paid online at least 5 days before departure) for as low as P180 pesos depending on your destination.

To avail of Flytpack’s service, you just need to make a deposit of P2,800 pesos (aside from your daily data cost) which you will of course get back after return of the router kit. Also, it is important that you reserve a router at least 3 days before your flight, because they will be setting up the router and deliver it right at your doorstep 1 day before your flight. Then once you get back from your trip, they will also pick it up in your address a day after arrival. So easy and convenient!!!

Let me show you how their kit looks like…

Each Flytpack router kit includes:

  1. carry case
  2. router
  3. universal charger
  4. usb cable

How to use the Flytpack router:

Upon arriving at your country of destination, simply turn on the router, open your wi-fi in your smartphone, connect to the SSID, then enter the password indicated in your router.

The VERDICT:

I was impressed with the quick hassle free setup. All I had to do was basically turn it on and connect to its wi-fi. Soooooo EASY! Anyone can do it!

I was also amazed with the 4G internet speed as I never had any connection problems during my event coverage in Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. The Flytpack router can even service up to 5 devices, making it ideal for group trips. I also liked the fact that its battery life was dependable, as I never had to recharge the router even after a full day of work!

And yes, after my trip, they even picked it up at my house. Super convenient and hassle free!

Here are the destinations which they can service:

Renting a Flytpack router was indeed one of the best decisions I made during my last trip abroad.   With Flytpack, I’m able to quickly connect to the internet immediately after aircraft landing. From now on, I don’t need to stress myself in connecting to free airport wi-fi services that can be difficult to set-up, especially when in a non-English speaking country. I can also enjoy fast 4G connection as I tour places. I also love their service a lot, and it’s way more affordable than roaming charges. If you’re going out the country, I highly recommend you try this wonderful service! Highly recommended! I will definitely rent one again on my next trip abroad!
