Pocket Wi-Fi Rental at Narita Airport

Rent a Pocket Wi-fi for Easier Travel

As we wrote in the post “Pocket Wi-fi is Now an Essential Item for Travelers“, having a stable internet connection during your stay in Japan will be extremely helpful.

A lot of the visitors to Japan will be landing at Narita International Airport. You might be thinking of getting a pocket wi-fi rental at the airport and might be wondering how much that will cost. This post is for you.

 

Book Ahead!

If you are thinking of finding one after arriving in Japan, we suggest you change your mind and make a booking in advance before coming to Japan.

There are wi-fi rental counters at the airports where you can apply and rent on the same day, however, most of them only have a limited amount of stock and they might be sold out on the day you arrive. Some only accept advance booking.

CDJapan Rental has a great deal on pocket wifi, with a range of flexible plans starting at ¥187/day. Japan Pocket Wifi Rental

Another reason we suggest you make an online booking in advance is because the prices tend to be cheaper when you do so.

Also, even the advance booking can be sold out during the peak seasons such as March, April, October, and December. If you are planning to travel during the high season, we recommend you make a booking early.

 

Renting a Pocket Wi-Fi at Narita Airport

Some pocket wi-fi rental companies have their own counters at the airport while most don’t.

Those that do not have their own counters offer you the same service by letting you collect the ordered items at a counter called “QL Liner Counter” or Japan Post Office in the airport. Alternatively, most of them offer you an option to have your package delivered to your accommodation by mail for you to collect upon check-in.

Our pocket wi-fi rental brand, CDJapan Rental, do not have their counter at any airport and accept orders online only. They do so because having a counter at the airport costs a lot. By managing their business online only, they have been able to offer customers the best price. At the moment, they accept orders online and the ordered items are delivered to the post office in either terminal 1 or 2 for customers to collect. Soon they will add an option to have the packages delivered to QL Liner Counter as well.

 

1. Companies that have their own counter in Narita Airport

If you want to speak directly to the shop staff and get assistance on how to use the product etc., it’s good to pick a company that has their own counter.

The downside is that their prices are relatively high. Also, make sure your flight arrives during their open hours.

2. Companies that are available at QL Liner Counter

3. Companies that are available at the post office

The post office in Narita Terminal 1 and 2 are open 8:30AM to 8:00PM everyday.

If your flight is scheduled to arrive at night after 7PM, there may be not enough time to collect your package from the post office. If so, have your package delivered to your hotel or to any Japan Post office near your accommodation.

These companies offer reasonable prices as they save the extra cost to have a counter at the airport or use the QL liner counter.

Let’s compare the prices

For your reference, we have calculated the estimate amount for the 14 days rental period. Please note that the estimate prices do not include insurance or other options.

Information here including the price and business hours of the shops are all subject to change, so please check each company’s website for the details before you order.

To be fair, we picked up a product from each company that is similar to one another in terms of quality such as data allowance(the biggest data package) and the network reliability(works in cities and also suburbs). We did not include companies that do not offer the equivalent product to the others.
