Find out if where you are staying has WiFi and if so if it's free. All you need then in a wireless laptop and you are good (If you dont have a wireless laptop add a wireless USB adaptor for £6.99 http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/19137848/TP-Link-TL-WN727N-150Mbps-Wireless-USB-Adapter/Product.html?_%24ja=tsid:11518%7Ccat:19137848%7Cprd:19137848)

Are you going abroad? Buying a UK dongle that uses the mobile phone networks and using this abroad is very expensive. Using hotel WiFi can be hundreds of pounds cheaper in this instance.

If you can't use wifi in your hotel, some countries have networks that offer a pay as you go service for mobile broadband. Buy an unlocked 3g dongle from the bay and get a card from one of the network providers.

Tell us where you are thinking off going to may help. Here's a couple of providers, many more about though

You got wi-fi for the laptop? If not, get dongle as mosschops above. Use laptop in bar, Mac D or Starbucks where wi-fi free. Simples.
