I have booked a future Über ride from Zürich Station to the Airport. My issue is that I don’t have a travel SIM, or by extension mobile data. What should I do so as to know if a ride has been accepted, and when the driver will arrive?


There’s free WiFi in the station. https://www.sbb.ch/en/station-services/railway-stations/products/free-wifi.html

    Well if you’re concerned about security, you pay for it. So by a mobile sim and pay for data! – Augustine of Hippo Feb 15 '19 at 0:43

    @ThE iLIEgAl aLiEn You should add that comment to your answer - the small saving on not buying a mobile SIM or getting a temporary add-on to existing SIM isn’t worth the security risk of using an open WiFi network IMHO – Traveller Feb 15 '19 at 8:22
  • @Traveller Why wouldn't you use your VPN, as you would in a coffee shop or any other place like that? – Spehro Pefhany Feb 15 '19 at 9:40
  • @Traveller Perhaps because in the last two decades of using free WiFi everywhere I go I’ve not suffered any security exploitation (at least that I am aware of), I am not the most security conscious. I never met free WiFi that I didn’t jump on. – Augustine of Hippo Feb 15 '19 at 11:50
