I'm going to Doha, Qatar, to see the start of the MotoGP championship.

Do you know if is it possible to rent a portable hotspot in the Hamad International Airport?

Alternatively, where can I find information about where to rent a portable hotspot in Doha?

  • Hi Laurent, I've seen both cellomobile and xcomglobal offers but it seems they don't have a sell point in Qatar. The standard approach is: order by internet, receive the device, use the device, return the device. Unfortunatly I don't have time to order it because the departure is imminent

  • Some offer a worldwide delivery. Not sure how long it takes. Then the other options are to buy a Sim card at the airport or use Wifimap which works well in a lot of countries (I used it in Qatar).
