Power points and plugs

Power points and plugs

Every unknowing traveller has felt regret over the fact that their phone or laptop chargers were not compatible with their hotel room’s power outlets. Fiji uses type 1 power plugs which is similar to Australia and New Zealand’s. If you are travelling from any place other than these two countries then it is preferable to get type 1 adapters or power boards at local shops when you have arrived in Fiji.

Cell service providers

Cell service providers in Fiji

Cell service providers in Fiji are limited to two options, Vodafone and Digicel, the latter had recently been acquired by Australian telecommunications company, Telstra. 4G broadband range is quick in urban and resort areas, however broadband range and even cell service might drop in remote and rural areas.



Wifi at your accommodation will either be free or cost a certain price. For a cheaper alternative and easy set up, you can choose to buy a Digicel sim card with great data internet deals. Arriving at Nadi airport, you’ll see a Vodafone and Digicel shop at the duty-free area before customs, you can purchase your sim cards at either one of these two shops. Another alternative is to use international roaming services, which costs a few extra dollars but offers the same exceptional service.

Drone use
