Starting June 1 2012 international travellers can avoid expensive data roaming charges in New Zealand. Luxury Adventures are offering portable WiFi units for your rental vehicle at selected locations (Auckland, Wellington, Picton, Christchurch and Queenstown). The small portable units connect to devices such as laptops, smart-phones and iPads enabling web access at a fraction of the cost of international data-roaming allowing fast download speeds via 3G networks. There is a generous daily allowance of 150mb and the unit can connect up to 5 devices at once. The unit can be removed from the car enabling use in your hotel etc. Perfect for keeping in touch via Skype, social networking, checking emails or just browsing the web. The cost of hiring these units is NZ$14.89 per day. Contact us for further information or if you would like to add a portable WiFi unit to your booking.
