Travel Tip of the Day: Free Airport Wi-Fi Trick #1

LoungeFree Airport Wi-Fi Trick #1
I think all airports should offer free Wi-Fi but surprisingly many still don’t (here’s a pretty good list). My trick for finding free Wi-Fi? Hanging out in front of or near an airline’s club lounge, where there’s almost always an open connection. I did it two weeks ago in Atlanta and it worked like a charm!

    I forgot my Platinum card which normally gets me entrance into the Delta Sky Clubs and found that if I sat in the gate seats directly across from the entrance to the club, I got great wi-fi reception. This was in Atlanta, can’t remember which terminal.

    Any lounge I have been in gives a password to access their wifi or you can’t access their wifi .Hawaiian airlines even has different passwords for lax & hnl lounges.

  6. Barclaycard Arrival, 50,000 bonus miles
    This card doesn’t work like the airline travel cards. Barclaycard will credit 10% of your mileage towards the purchase price of an airline ticket, whereas the airline cards use your mileage towards an airline ticket. It’s not explained that way unless you speak to a Barclaycard agent.

  7. Very nice!! there is so much information on this blog keep posting good information like this so that I can come back every day for some new info
