How to Stay Online when Abroad.

Even though we go on holiday, most of us still ❤ to be connected to the World ONLINE. Here’s a cool way you can do this, in case you’ve booked somewhere with Wifi the speed of a snail. And save on unwanted Data roaming charges too. IMPORTANT Remember unless your UK mobile contract includes data roaming abroad, you’ll get charged a lot for using your mobile data abroad.

✅Pack an old unlocked smartphone, it’s charger & the pin (if it has one).
✅When you arrive at your destination airport, a number of countries will allow you to purchase a local sim or give you one for FREE. In some cases, you may need to buy from an official mobile network shop in town.
✅You’ll need to show your passport as your ID.
✅You can usually purchase DATA as part of the plan. 1GB is usually enough unless you’re doing a lot of downloads.

At the Marrakech Airport, there are many mobile providers waiting to give you a FREE sim card, with some local call credit. Data is extra about £1 for 1GB. Best to top up there so you’re not searching for places to top up later or in case the Wifi at the hotel is not great.


NOW THIS IS WHERE IT GETS MORE INTERESTING…..
✅After you’ve popped that new sim into your old unlocked phone, turn the data icon on & go online.

✅Always do this once you get your sim, in case there any issues.

✅Then turn on the “Mobile Hotspot” icon. This basically turns the old mobile into a Wifi Hub your whole family can use. There’s a password that you need to set up which prevents others from using your data.

✅Turn on the Wifi on your phone/ device, the Mobile Hubspot network will show up. (If not, go into settings to find it. )

✅Connect using the password. And hey presto ! You’re connected to the rest of the World again….
