With the travel season upon us, here’s how to find out whether an airport offers free wireless Internet access (“wifi”), so that you can use your laptop to find a place to sleep if you’re stuck at the airport.
But first, let us remind you to be very careful when booking your travel arrangements online, and be wary of search engine advertisements for cheap airline ticket sites which are actually phishing sites.
If you are a member of any of the clubs like Continental’s “President’s Club”, check there first, because they often offer free wifi in their club areas. In fact Continental’s President’s Club offers free wifi to their members in 22 airports around the country.

Beyond that, however, there is a nifty website which helps people to find free wifi around the country. And one of the lists they maintain is a list of airports offering free wifi. They also have a list of hotels and motels, another of RV and camping locations, and even a list of vacation rental spots, all offering free wifi.
We found it especially interesting to note that many smaller airports offer free wireless Internet access, including John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California; Binghamton Airport in Binghamton, New York; and Bismark Airport in Bismark, North Dakota.
You can check to see if an airport through which you’ll be flying offers free wifi by going to WifiFreeSpot.com.
