As we’re so accustomed to staying connected online everywhere we go, it would be almost too horrifying to be devoid of internet access while travelling. After all, how else are you supposed to give real-time updates to your friends on Instagram? 

Sim cards might be more practical for solo travellers, but for those travelling in larger groups, it might be easier to get a portable router. Such routers can also support other devices such as cameras - thus allowing for almost instant phone-to-camera transfers so you can edit and upload your pictures on the go. Here’s where you can rent portable WiFi routers in Singapore for your next overseas trip.
