Portable WiFi I used during my Vietnam Trip | Travel Recommends

Hey Pinkyies! It's been a while that I blog about travel related post! If you followed my social media accounts, you'll know that I was in Vietnam last month! Like finally I went overseas this year cause I barely have time to travel before this!

Before I share about my trip experience, I'm gonna share how I stay connected with the internet during my trip first cause you know, it's like the most important thing for the digital ages now after your mobile phone and passport when you travel overseas!

Thanks to my travel buddies Shin May & Sharon, I get to know about Travel Recommends, a trusted travel buddy where they offer travel options like
  1. Internet connectivity such as Portable Wifi or International Sim Cards, 
  2. Transportations, and even 
  3. Pre-paid ticket bookings for the top attractions in your destination.

For this trip we booked the 4G Unlimited Portable Wifi with them since there are 3 of us travelling together and we can just share the WiFi anytime anywhere together. In case you wonder, it can connect up to 6 devices at the same time!

There are a total of 5 booths located in Malaysia - KLIA, Gateway@KLIA2 - Departure, Penang @ Suntech, Johor Bahru and Sabah. Check out the specific location for each places here. The one we went was KLIA2.

Before our trip, we booked our Pocket WiFi thru their website's online booking system and we only need to head over to their booth in KLIA2 which located right in between Gate 1 and 2 of the Departure Hall, Level 3 for self-pickup by showing our booking number before we depart from Kuala Lumpur. It's super fuss-free I have to say!

But if you're afraid you don't have enough time to pick up from the booth, you can still choose to deliver the rental products straight to your doorstep!

They'll give you a pouch with the Portable WiFi, a charging cable, a universal adapter and instructions on how to use the product inside! I kind of make full use of the pouch to also place in my own USB charges and power bank :))))).

The Portable WiFi is using micro USB as the charger so you can use your own cable if you're an Android user, and you don't quite need to worry if you forgot to bring your own universal adapter for your trip cause you can just use theirs!

There's a digital screen on the Portable WiFi so you can check the battery life of the device and how much data you have used on that day.

The battery life of the Portable WiFi can last about 6 - 8 hours, but it's better to standby a power bank to recharge it in case you're out for longer than that!

The rental for the Portable WiFi to Vietnam is only at MYR 12 per day! The cost among 3 of us is only MYR 4 per day, how affordable!

Even though the WiFi's rental is already very affordable, pay your WiFi rental with VISA to enjoy additional discount when you book online!
  • For VISA Platinum, Signature and Infinite Card users, enjoy 30% off with promo code TRVISA30.
  • For VISA Debit or Credit Card users, enjoy 15% off with the promo code TRVISA15.

For those who need more than just Internet connectivity, Travel Recommends also offer international pre-paid SIM Cards in Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, and Hong Kong. Just like the Portable WiFi Routers, you can pre-order yours online and have it conveniently couriered to you or pick it up before your flight from KLIA or KLIA2.
