We depend on our phones and tablets to take photos and have instant access to our social media sites, accounts, and almost any website. When traveling, our devices can help us access maps, post to social media, and be a light and easy camera replacement for times when you don’t feel like carrying your camera bag and its necessary (and at times bulky) accessories.
You’re in luck! Complimentary Wi-Fi Service is available on the coaches in many countries* you’ll visit as well as in a large proportion of the hotels you’ll stay in. While traveling, this complimentary service makes it easy to keep in touch with family and friends via e-mail or social networking sites. Meeting new people means new connections and new friends as well! You can even share your experiences by tagging #grandeuropean!
When on board your coach, it’s important to know that the Wi-Fi works on the 3G mobile phone network. Because of this, it cannot handle streaming videos or large photo uploads, and your connection will be slower than standard broadband and sometimes may not be available. The best practice is to save your photo uploads until you reach a hotel with standard Wi-Fi.
Wi-Fi will be available for most of the hotels you’ll stay at and on coaches in the USA (except Alaska). Wi-Fi is also available on coaches traveling in Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Ecuador.

At times, venturing into towns, you may find a café or restaurant offering free Wi-Fi. However, it's very important to remember that when you connect to a public Wi-Fi network, you're opening your data up to the world. Be sure you also do everything you can to stay safe on public Wi-Fi networks. This includes turning off sharing, being careful about what network you connect to, and changing a few settings on your computer.
*On-coach Wi-Fi is available in the following countries: Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey. This excludes the coaching section of trips operated by train or on local transfer relief coaches when the main coach is not being used.
You may feel weird not having your cell phone tucked in your pocket, but don’t want to spend a fortune on roaming charges or international calls. Again, while most* of your hotels and coaches abroad will have complimentary Wi-Fi, the majority of major U.S. phone companies also offer the option of choosing a plan that allows you to make calls, send texts, and access data while traveling abroad. Each company offers different plans for various prices, so if you’re interested in this route, contact your provider.Using a Cellphone in Europe
