Europcar, Europe’s largest car rental company, has launched a competitive range of low, fixed cost portable wifi products aimed at reducing data roaming charges for its Irish customers both at home and abroad.

The personal wifi hotspot rental is now available in three competitive packages, which are significantly more cost effective compared to standard data costs abroad.  The daily package allows you a maximum of 500MB per day for just €5; the weekly rental offers up to 3.5GB per week for just €20 and the monthly rental offers up to 15GB of data for a fixed cost of just €60.

Europcar Ireland customers can now avoid excessive European hotel internet charges and benefit from connecting up five devices at a time, to include iPhones, iPods, iPads, Smartphones, Laptops and Netbooks.  The personal wifi hotspot is supplied in a portable pouch so that you can use it in your vehicle, in your hotel room, in your holiday home or at the beach.
