How to Rent a Singapore Pocket Wifi for 2019

How to Rent a Singpore Pocket Wifi

Visitors to Singapore get great benefits by renting a Singapore pocket wifi.  We recently booked a portable wifi rental Singapore through Klook and were impressed by how high a speed of internet access that is provided by this great option for tourists at such an affordable price.

Why Should You Rent a Pocket Wifi?

While there are many options to access free wifi in Singapore, we have found that buying a local sim card or renting a pocket wifi an essential item while travelling, to enable us to easily access information on the go, as well as to stay in touch with friends and family using social media.  Advantages of buying a sim card or renting a pocket wifi include the following:

  • Easy access to Google Maps to enable ease of travel through complicated public transport systems. On our recent trip to Singapore I was constantly using Google Maps to get around and keep track of where we were to ensure we hopped off at the right stop.
  • Planning each day out, both the night before and while on the go. Several times we decided to change out original plans and it was great to be able to quickly look up hawker market and other food options while out and about.
  • Making bookings on the go for tickets and tours

A great advantage of a sim card or pocket wifi is that once you have completed your initial log in or activation process, there is nothing more to do to stay connected.  If you rely on free wifi options you have to constantly find and log into new wifi networks, and there is always the issue of the level of security of each network.  With your own sim card or pocket wifi you can use data with confidence that you are very low risk to be hacked.

How to Book a Pocket Wifi Rental for Singapore through Klook

Klook provides an easy option to order your pocket wifi rental Singapore for collection at Changi Airport.  The ordering process was very easy, we regularly personally use Klook to order travel tickets, tours, sim cards and pocket wifi rental for Asian countries, and they had a great range of options when we were planning our visit to Singapore.

After we arrived at Changi Airport the collection process was very easy.  After clearing customs and collecting our luggage, we went to the Changi Recommends counter in the public arrival area in Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1.  With our passport, booking voucher and our credit card to place a holding authorisation on our card, we then received our pocket wifi package.  We were able to turn it on and immediately connect to my smart phone, and we were quickly ready to go! 

Our Experience with the Klook Pocket Wifi Rental

We used our Klook pocket wifi router throughout our recent 3.5 day visit to Singapore and found it worked really well and enabled us to stay connected while on the go.  We used it for both on the go data access for our family’s smart phones as well as our laptop computers and other family mobile devices while in our hotel and it continued to work well with no signs of struggling with the load.  We were very impressed.

As it was a pocket wifi there was no activation process required, simply turn on and log into the wifi hotspot that the pocket wifi generates, and the only other action is to recharge it each night.  The battery life while out and about was excellent.  We had some longer days and the Klook pocket wifi kept performing throughout our time in Singapore.
