How can I get internet while in Italy?

Episode 1313

Paul from Scottsdale, AZ

Paul's friend is getting married in Italy and they want to know how they can get internet in their room. Leo says to go to prepaidwithdata.wikia.com. There, he can find where to go to get a MiFi card. A MiFi is a small credit card sized device that gets internet from a cellular network and turns that signal into Wi-Fi. That way he can pay through a local carrier in Italy and not pay international data roaming fees.

Johnny and his wife are in Minnesota for a "destination baby shower" at the Mall of America. With over 500 shops and two hotels, it's a huge place to go shopping.

Can a home insurance company offer travel insurance? Johnny isn't sure, but your credit card may offer travel insurance as a proof of membership. Another good insurance option is "cancel anytime insurance." This will give you the option of having to cancel your trip and get reimbursed.

Johnny and his wife Natalie are hanging out in Hawaii this week. Today he's talking about Brexit and how the UK leaving the EU will affect travel. He says there won't be much change for about two years, but it has lowered the cost of travel in the short run to the UK. But it will affect flyers who use Irish carriers like Ryan Air, since Ireland could opt to stay in the EU.

This week's website - Tired of the long TSA lines? Check out I Hate the Wait. People are taking pictures of their TSA lines and posting them with the tag line #IHateTheWait. Airlines are even complaining about people missing their flights because of the TSA checkin. Johnny says that's why it's always best to get to the airport several hours in advance. Bring a book, check in unhurried and then wait. Also get TSA Precheck. But even that can be a 20 minute wait. The TSA gives suggested wait times, but it's not really that accurate.
