Things You Want to Know About #myPALRoam

07/21/2016

What three things you can’t live without when you travel abroad?

The four most important things a millenial traveller need would be:

  1. Passport,
  2. Cash or plastic money,
  3. A good smartphone with good cam and all the apps they need to get around the area and document their adventures: According to a survey recently released by TripAdvisor, “the world’s largest travel site,” mobile devices — primarily “smart” phones — have quickly established an extremely important place in the overall scheme of travel. The survey covered 1,000 respondents in the United States who have mobile devices, and found that although the most frequent use was to make/receive calls and texts, almost two-thirds of the respondents downloaded and used at least one specialized travel app:   
    While traveling: 62 % use their mobile device to research restaurants, 51 % check flight status, 46 percent research destination attractions, 45 % read traveler reviews, 42 % research or book accommodations, and 34 % research or book airline flights; in addition, 59 % use their mobile device’s GPS function, and 47 % have used their devices internationally.
  4. Mobile data/ Internet connection / Wi-Fi connectivity

How could you download and use all those apps if you don’t have internet connection right?

Keeping in mind the changing needs of passengers, Philippine Airlines together with Skyroam created the myPAL Roam, a global  mobile hotspot device that provices easy, fast, secured and affordable mobile data anywhere in the world.
