 I have used my iPad in Ireland & England with no problems and I have a Verizon cell phone (Droid Global II) that allows for use of it around the world. If you can get free wi-fi from your hotel, riverboat or local shops/pubs/coffee places and such, you should be fine.

To use your verizon cell phone as your wi-fi hot spot, you need to have international phone service for your cell and the wi-fi hot spot set up on your phone.  Check with Verizon about those things, they will help you.

 Thanks for the info.  I don't know a lot about this technical stuff but hopefully Verizon can set me up.  I will be renting a global phone from them becaue I have an IPhone that is not global.  I will tell them the problem and hopefully they can help me out..Glad to hear it all worked for you though..
