Hippo can be your best travel buddy, the only pocket wifi that you need to stay connected in Europe!

8.8

On our recent trip to Europe, we traveled for 58 days across 14 countries and 25 cities. As bloggers, as freelancing professionals, and as the internet savvy generation it was integral to stay connected.

On our previous trip, we did take our chances of activating international roaming on our phones and buying a local sim in every country. After 9 countries, we had spent over 100’s of euros individually and a considerable amount of time in getting ourselves a travelers sim. Honestly, internet packages were not as cheap in Europe as we have in India and public wifi’s often had a glitch attached (like a local number, bad server, etc.)

We needed a better solution, a convenient one which would hopefully also save up costs.

After some considerable research, we found out about the Hippocket Wifi, a wifi service that provides a portable device which offers internet across various European countries.

We ordered for 1 device which Parichay and myself could share because each device has a 5GB daily data limit.

Placing our order was simple.

We went to https://hippocketwifi.com/en and started browsing the terms and plan options.

We also had initial queries which were solved via email.

After we were sure, we placed our order, including itinerary, dates and hotel details of our starting point.

As per the dates provided, the device was couriered to our hotel in Berlin, free of cost. It was waiting for us when we arrived at the reception.

The portable mobile wifi device was packed stylishly, the courier included a zip pouch which contained a note for us, a portable wifi device, charging cable adapter and spare sim in case of emergency.

Setting up the device was simple.

We had to turn it on and connect it with our device with the given password like any other wifi connection.

Return:

As per our mentioned date, we got a reminder email to either renew our plan or return the device.

Returning the device was as easy as it could get. Especially because the Hippo team had already sent a spare envelope with their address & sponge coating to return their device. All we had to do was pack it before heading to the airport and dropping the package in a post box.

We then got a confirmation email of receiving the postage after a few days.

Wasn’t that easy peasy?

And of course, we saved a hell lot of time, money, effort and didn’t have to deal with multiple numbers.

The Internet is such a key essential for travelers today. To communicate, to navigate using maps, to book attractions, check details, connect with your folks back home. Thanks to Hippocket, we had a convenient way of going about the same!
