ROAD TRIP WITH THREE – Three launches RoadFi to make motorways less mundane this bank holiday –
With over two thirds of Brits embarking on long drives and road trips at least once every three months, mums and dads up and down the country who might be loading their cars this August bank holiday will be relieved to know there’s a new way to keep little ones occupied while on the move, thanks to Three and its new RoadFi service.
Research* commissioned by Three has revealed that over a third of Brits (33%) struggle to keep their family entertained during long car journeys with boredom (28%) being the most common complaint followed by batteries running out on devices (20%) and mobile signal cutting in and out (11%).
The age-old comment ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ (36%) is still the favourite, followed by ‘I’m hungry/thirsty’ (26%) as the most annoying phrases children mention when they are frustrated in the back of the car. With these family mutterings from the back seat it’s no wonder parents feel that long journeys with the family are a real chore!
The new RoadFi service from Three can help with this and gives parents the chance to say goodbye to the gripes of car travel, allowing customers to plug in a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 devices into the car’s cigarette lighter. With parents relying on music (64%), tablets (57%) and mobile phones (45%) to keep their tots from getting restless during the journey, the addition of a new Wi-Fi service is sure to provide relief.
For families who are planning on taking their long drives out of the country, RoadFi even works in Three’s 18 Feel At Home destinations at no extra cost so the family can stay entertained no matter how long the drive is. What’s more is that the RoadFi runs off the car’s 12V power supply, meaning that it will stay switched on from the moment you pull out the driveway.
RoadFi is available from £10 per month on a 24 month contract with 2GB which includes a free £25 Amazon Gift Card. For full details of tariffs you can visit www.three.co.uk for more information.
