For free Wi-Fi when travelling (using another definition of "free") I
can highly recommended:

  * macchanger
  * iodine (takes considerable setup but is worth it, for when it works)

and others have recommended mosh.  These are all Debian packages.

I would only use SSH, VPN or Tor traffic over public Wi-Fi.  Although
`ssh -L 8123:` allows to easily create a tunnel from
http_proxy= to a remote proxy like provoxy, polipo
or squid).
