I support employees and customers who infrequently travel outside of the United States for both work and pleasure for one to three weeks at a time.

The destinations can be almost any country in the world.

Invariably, they need my staff to find them (a) rental of a "mi-fi" like device so they can get web access for their laptops, iPads, Android, and iPod Touch devices (without onerous surcharges), and (b ) find them short-term cell phone rentals where the per-minute rates won't empty their wallets.

In the last year alone, countries involved included Nicaragua, China, Chile, Finland, and Russia. A trip to India is pending.

I feel like every time someone plans a trip, we need to start over looking for rental vendors.

Is there a web site that keeps travelers up to date on web and cell phone options for short-term trips?

Sites like TripAdvisor.com do a great job of keeping travelers up to date on hotel cleanliness and transportation, but I have yet to find a site to help with voice and data communications for travelers.

(If you don't know of such a site, how about just advice for India?)

Help!"
