Travel Tip of the Day: Free Airport Wi-Fi Trick #2

Wi-FiFree Airport Wi-Fi Trick #2
Monday’s tip was about how to get free Wi-Fi in airports where it’s not a standard offering for all passengers. Well, there are some airports that do offer it (here’s a good resource) but only for, say, 15 minutes (like Paris or Frankfurt, for example). That’s better than nothing, but one way to extend that allotted time is by clearing the cookies or history in your computer, phone or tablet. That way, you can keep signing up for 15-minute (or 30- or whatever it is) intervals over and over.

  1. tried this in Madrid last weekend… didn’t work.

  2. Your tip about finding free Internet near one of the upgraded lounges really does not work. The wifi in those lounges usually requires a password, which they give you when you enter.

  3. I might try your tip when I go to Italy next month. It might in some airports. Thanks

  4. That Boingo wifi in places like Houston really sucks, you do get 45 min free for watching an ad, but the coverage is pretty weak and both my ipad and ipod touch had trouble, esp at the C gates
