Free Wi-Fi: Where, When, and Why!

how-to-get-free-wifi-in-airportsIf you know anything about the term #FOMO—the Fear Of Missing Out—you know how real it is when you DON’T have access to the Internet (Note: FOMO is not to be confused with travel separation anxiety). I, more specifically, experience MAJOR email #FOMO when traveling. What if while I’m sans connectivity my bank sends me a ‘fraudulent activity alert’ email? How will I ever know who wants to connect with me on LinkedIn?! Torture, truly. Thus, (free) Wi-Fi has become a staple, and fortunately, airports are picking up on this fact.

Mikey Tierney reports in an article that of the nation’s 30 busiest airports, 12 offer free Wi-Fi! And why the gradual switch to demonetizing internet access, you may wonder? “A pleasant experience for travelers, which can include Wi-Fi, could spawn fresh businesses,” Tierney writes, and “some lost revenue [on Wi-Fi] would be recouped through more spending at airport establishments.” So money saved on W-Fi is money spent on…shopping. Hey, we’re not complaining!

Free Wifi_350

Airwatchdog.com does a great job of compiling a comprehensive list of U.S. and international airports that offer free Wi-Fi. Their list also includes airports that still charge for access and their prices. However, you should always double check the list’s accuracy—although it says Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport charges $4.95 per day for access, as of late, it’s actually free!

So since you’re getting deals on airport Wi-Fi, go ahead—download our free FlyInStyle App and find more exclusive deals on your favorite airport shopping!

Stare Into the Sun: Picking Out the Perfect Pair of Shades

Stare Into the Sun: Picking Out the Perfect Pair of Shades

Your trip to Ibiza is booked! While packing for your beach getaway you realize you’ve lost your sunglasses. Instead of spending a few dollars on a cheap pair its time to upgrade your style for an amazing summer look!

There are three major components to finding the perfect pair of shades. First consider the occasion for the sunglasses. For a higher fashion feel consider a frame from Christian Dior, Tom Ford, or Persol. If you prefer an every-day style, Ray-Ban, Oakley, or Ralph Lauren may suit you better.

Next, finding the perfect fit is essential. While in the store, don’t be afraid to try on many different styles. Be cautious not to pick out a frame that is too big or narrow for your face. Ideally, the frame should provide ample coverage and feel comfortable on your face.

Finally, while picking out the perfect frame do not compromise on the lens. A pair of polarized glasses will effectively shield the glare from the sun but will come at a higher price point. A non-polarized lens will still block the UVA/UVB rays but it will not block the glare from the sun completely. Consider your budget but remember a polarized lens is a higher quality product.

You’ve got your sunglasses and you are about to board the plane. Be ready to FLYINSTYLE and soak up the sun!
