Five Trip Preparation Tips for an Enjoyable and Affordable Holiday in USA #travel #bloggers
Most hotels in the States do not offer complimentary Wi-Fi with the room and can charge upwards of 20 USD for 24 hours of access with cap on how much data you can use. Phone and Internet roaming charges are also crazy. Luckily, we found an affordable and convenient to get internet on the go with no-contract mobile broadband plans offered by local telco companies. As of May 2012, T-Mobile offers one of the most value for money plan – at just 25 USD, you get a data access limit of 3GB for a period of 1 month. If you just need to check emails, facebook, whatsapp and the occasional Skype call, this is more than enough. Perfect for keeping in touch with your family e.g. providing real-time Whatsapp updates on your bargain buys at the outlet malls (do take note of time difference between US and Singapore – while you are happily shopping away at 2pm, it is 2am back home!).
