Wi-Fi Dogs/Travel

We’ve all been there. On vacation. The hotel you’re staying at charges and arm and a leg to get Wi-Fi, so you do what any self-respecting stingy traveller would — you go on the hunt for the free stuff. Cafés, fast food joints, shopping centres — any of the usual haunts to get that ever elusive, but oh so satisfying free connection. Enter José’s Wi-Fi dogs.

Wouldn’t it be better to research roaming costs in your destination a little beforehand to see if paying for internet on your mobile phone would be more of a cost-effective, less hassle kind of option? While the idea of renting Wi-Fi Dogs/Travel may not take off, I think the marketing crowd may have stumbled onto something that would sell — renting a pet while on vacation. Now that’s something I’m sure a lot of pet lovers would go for. Take a look at the video below and let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
