Some Hvar Tech Tips to Make Your Travels Easier


Here are some Hvar Tech Tips to help you on your way.


SMART PHONES


We both have our smartphones that we brought from the states. We were with AT&T, and we owned the phones outright, so we went to their unlocking site, You can find it HERE.


So far, Croatia is the easiest place to get a SIM card for travelers. There are a few carriers, and you can grab a card at any newsstand, or post office. I went with T-Mobile. I went to the post office so I could use my credit card. 85 Kuna or 11 Euro is the cost for 7 days.


Unlimited Data. You can also opt for calling packages pretty easily. The instructions on the packaging are in English and a number of other languages as well. I haven’t done it yet, but you can go to their website, and re-up each week, I’ll report back when I have done that and let you know how it goes.


No paperwork to sign, no ID required, no deposit for the card, just grab and go.


WIFI


Hvar has great Wifi.  Our apartment has good wifi, and most of the bars will give you the password for their network if you hang for a beverage.


ELECTRONICS

With the use of a converter most electronics work just fine in Croatia. Computers have no issue, phone charging has gone smoothly. I have been carrying around my converters, but I am sure you can get universal plugs here in the shops.
