Once upon a time, the major requirements for a good and enjoyable holiday were great weather and good sites to see. However, that was a long time ago. Things have taken a turn now and today when you ask a traveler, what are his/her most important requirements for a true holiday, the holidaymakers will undoubtedly list free Wi-Fi amongst their necessities.
