You need a "mobile hotspot" that will receive the cellular signal where you stay and 'convert' them to wifi that your iPad can connect to. Verizon makes one called a mifi. Check the carrier where you holiday and see if they offer one.

I'm probably a bit slow getting this! As far as I can see I can buy a portable "hotspot" - at a significant price. But then I also need a contract. That's where it gets difficult if I'm only after a week once a year. I'll invest in the hardware, but I don't want a monthly all year round fee as well. I've found some sites that do rentals but they seem aimed at business people who will pay vast amounts and then put it on expenses - plus I can't find any that seem to recognise Formentera - small Balearic island.
