Keep your parents happy–and 6 other unusual reasons to use KnowRoaming


After a trip across Europe with KnowRoaming, travel blogger Rain Travels compiled this fun list of reasons why KnowRoaming was a helpful travel companion. There are some pretty obvious reasons why you’d want to use KnowRoaming, like saving money on your roaming, but Rain highlights other reasons you may not have considered—think safety and peace of mind.

Check out Rain’s list below!

  1. Travel more and stop looking for Wi-Fi

    There’s nothing more frustrating than getting lost somewhere and having to waste time trying to find Wi-Fi just to access your Google Maps. With KnowRoaming, you can access your travel apps at any time so you can maximize your travels, instead of spending time looking for the closest Starbucks.

  2. Travel safer

    Having KnowRoaming gives you access to apps that could help you avoid dangerous situations. After a night of partying, it’s great to know you can quickly call an Uber to get you back to your hotel instead of roaming the unfamiliar streets. Unfortunately, many apps like Uber and bSafe require data to work.

  3. Instant translations

    Need to know what a street sign or menu say? Get instant translations via Google or your apps.

  4. Real-time should be real-time

    As the world moves to become more real-time on social (Periscope, Facebook Live, etc.), without the proper plan streaming video can get quite expensive.

  5. More secure and private

    Connecting via cell towers is more secure than public Wi-Fi spots—There’s no way to know who has access to a given Wi-Fi connection. Moreover, some places require you to provide your personal info and/or email in order to access its Wi-Fi. Just skip all this and go direct via the cell towers for maximum security and privacy.

  6. Peace of mind for parents

    Parents and family can check on you at anytime, giving them peace of mind (and hopefully let you travel more!).

  7. Great Customer Service 24/7

    If you have any issues with connecting, KnowRoaming has 24/7 email and phone support that usually replies within minutes, unlike the big cell phone providers who usually only provide support via phone.
