SIM card or Pocket Wifi or Verizon TravelPass?
Heading to Paris for the first time in February with the family and deciding between getting a local SIM card versus a portable WiFi router. We have 4 unlocked iPhones on a Verizon plan, will only need data (no voice or text), and will be in the city for 9 days. We are planning to use data on the go since we will have free WiFi at the hotel, mostly for apps (e.g. Google Maps, email, Facebook). We will probably only need 1 or 2 phones operational while on the go. Options that we are considering:
1. Pocket Wifi (Skyroam, Hip Pocket Wifi, Travel Wifi, etc)
2. Local SIM card (Orange Holiday, Lebara) - will use 1 or 2 phones as mobile hotspots for other devices
3. Verizon TravelPass ($10 a day per device)
Recommendations? Experience with specific vendors? Advice would be much appreciated!
