    Market rates because the systems in use are built for company employees on the road rather than the general public on holiday.

    As Carol mentions, dongle is the way to go :Smile:

    My sistter recently stayed in a Premier Inn where wi-fi also cost £5 per hour. Normally she has no problem getting on-line using her O2 dongle but inside the Premier Inn she could get no signal. Can an hotel's system block other signals to make you use the hotels wi-fi?

    Rip Off!!!

    What a rip off!:Eeek:

    Recently bought a Vodafone pay-as-as-you-go dongle with £15 credit already on it for £34

    It is ok for 180 days, unlike most of the other which expire after merely 30!

    get pretty good download speeds even when it can't find a 3g network.

    Not a lot of difference from Caravan Club charges...

    it's opperated by KeZone™ - Hotspot Directory
    so it's perhaps the same and outside their control .. ?

    Wi-Fi prices

    1 hour - £5 (Valid for use over 72 hours from first log in)
    4 hours - £8 (Valid for use over 92 hours from first log in)
    7 days - £20
    30 days - £33

    Its a rip off like many things in Britain.

    I am currently in a campsite in Javea Spain where the WIFI charges are 60c per day - yes 60 cents per 24 hours. Whilst on this trip I have seen charges as high as 4€ per hour, but equally often they are completely free.

    I will not pay £4 or 5 per hour to the caravan club or similar, there can be no justification.
