Fido releases top 5 reasons to take your smartphone with you while travelling this summer

Keep mom happy, find your crush and spread some FOMO - just a few of the reasons to remember to pack your phone

TORONTO (July 12, 2016) Now that summer has officially kicked off and travel season is in full swing, Fido has released new research on how and why 18 to 34-year-olds are using their smartphones while globetrotting. The survey found that 61%* of millennial jetsetters are planning to travel outside of Canada this summer, but the majority are too worried about roaming fees to use their phones like they normally would. From tracking likes to avoiding getting lost in a foreign country, Fido has uncovered some of the reasons that millennials want to roam this summer.

"With Fido Roam, we're making it easy and affordable for our customers to stay connected in tons of destinations around the world," said Nancy Audette, Vice President, Fido. "We know that millennials love to share travel experiences with their friends and family. In fact, more than a third indicated that they would like to post their travel images in real time while abroad, but only 11% actually do because of the fear of roaming charges. Now, with Fido Roam, customers can stay connected abroad without sweating the bill."

Along with the research findings, Fido has also today released the top 5 reasons why millennials need to get on Fido RoamTMthis summer:

  1. So mom doesn't panic: With 86%* of millennials using their phone to keep in touch with friends and family, now you can call mom when you land and get promoted to #1 child without breaking the bank.
  2. So you know where to go (and where not to go): 3 out of 4* globetrotting millennials use apps to look up restaurants, bars, directions, weather, etc. while outside of Canada and 33% have gotten lost because they didn't have access to map apps. Now you won't have to worry about taking a tuk-tuk 10 kilometers in the wrong direction or planning your surf trip for the one rainy day of the week.
  3. So your friends back home don't forget that you're on holiday and having a better time than them: Millennials love to spread a little FOMO - 63%* of those surveyed said that they use their smartphone to share status updates and images while abroad and over a quarter consider it more important to post to social media while they are traveling compared to when they are at home. The images most likely to make it onto millennial social media pages are:
    • Landscape shots - 40%
    • Beach / poolside photos - 35%
    • The ultra-smug "my view for the day" photo - 32%
  4. So you can "friend" your vacation crush (and because you might let your hygiene slip if you can't roam): Millennials are not only on the hunt for a WiFi connection (64% rely on WiFi to be able to use their phones outside of Canada), but also keen to make a love connection - 38% said that they would like to be able to roam so they can look up a vacation love interest on Facebook. Furthermore, nearly a quarter would give up brushing their hair and showering to be able to use their phone like they do in Canada. Let's not let it come to that, get Fido Roam and keep the desperation at bay.
  5. So you're not 10 memes behind when you get back to Canada and so you can track those likes: 33% of millennials like to check social media at least once a day while travelling. That's probably because if you don't, by the time you get home four celebrity couples have broken up and half have released a video album about it. You might also want to keep tabs on how popular you are - nearly a quarter consider it important to be able to track the likes that their posts are getting. Now you can keep up on celebrity gossip and know exactly how your photos, stories and snaps are doing with the online jury.

To bring the research to life, Fido teamed up with some travel crazy instagrammers who have shared their #FidoRoam experiences. Check out Tamy Pepin, Benjamin Rochette and the Sidewalk Hustle Instagram accounts to see how they use Fido Roam.
