BookMyWiFi has partnered with the leading telecom company in UAE to provide you with the mobile data coverage during your stay in the UAE.
BookMyWiFi uses the best and widest coverage network in the whole of the UAE and yes the connectivity is available even when travelling between Emirates.
Yes, you will have always have a signal except at a few underground stations in which the unit will not work.
On an average the battery has a life of 8 hours. Though, it also depends on the number of people connected and usage – higher the usage, more drain on the battery. So remember to charge it when you get back home after a long day. If you intend to be on the road a little longer, we can offer you a car charger or a powerful powerbank at a nominal fee for the duration of the trip.
Absolutely! You can use the powerbank to charge your phones/tablets while on the move.
The BookMyWiFi device allows you to connect upto 10 external devices simultaneously along with one computer/laptop via the USB cable.
The signal radius is 10 meters in open space.
Unfortunately no. You can only use the service in the UAE.
About the service
The stronger the signal strength the faster the connection. You can always gauge the signal strength by observing the network description (LTE/HSPA+) and the coverage bars on the screen. The devices connect to the speed of 4G or 3G or 3.5G (HSDPA) depending on the area (between 4 Mbps to 150 Mbps)
Yes this is possible. As the 4G/ LTE coverage in the UAE expands there will be some places where the 4G/LTE network is not strong enough and therefore our device automatically drops down to 3g/HSPA+ to ensure that you stay connected.
Unfortunately you cannot make regular mobile calls using your BookMyWiFi device. You can however use the internet to catch up with friends.
You can stay in touch with your friends and family (Whatsapp, Facebook..), stay in touch with work (emails) use maps to navigate, use the internet to plan your tour, discover the choicest places to eat and the list goes on.
We offer you multiple ways for booking. Either you can book it online via our website or via your travel agent. Please have your travel agent contact us at email@example.com and we will work with them to provide you hotel delivery.
We encourage you to book as early as possible – you don’t want to leave this to the end. Although we understand that some plans are made last minute only – in which case we apply an additional nominal charge of AED 70 (USD 20) to have your BookMyWiFi kit delivered to you.

You are in an area which has neither 4G/LTE nor 3G/H+. Please look at the coverage bars on the top right hand corner of the device screen. At 1 bar it is difficult to get a connection and if it says NO SERVICE, then it means there is no coverage in the area Resolution: Move or change the position of the device to a place where there is 3G coverage The device is not connected to the kitmytrip WiFi. Normally the phones/devices latch on to known WiFi networks and thus may not be connected to the kitmytrip wifi Resolution: Please make sure the device is connected to the kitmytrip WiFi In cases where the coverage is low and a there is a very high concentration of people Resolution: Move away from the area to an area where either coverage is better
