Temporary SFTP/Rsync for traveling videography

Temporary Cloud Backup on the road: I'm traveling this summer for 2 months in Europe and will be shooting HD footage at a rate of at most 64 GB a day (4 hrs) documenting music festivals. What would be the cheapest solution to do daily backups to a hosted service? By the end of the trip I at most will have 3 TB of video.

I currently have a BackBlaze account and have them for my desktop at home, but I worry that they won't be able to 'catch up' nightly if I tried to use them for on the road backups for a massive amount of files.
I have looked into Rsync and Amazon S3, but was curious if there is a better hosted solution that I can SFTP my raw footage up to nightly (or whenever I have access to WiFi) so that if my laptop dies I at most would have lost 1 day of video.
This would only be needed for 2 months, and after that I will transfer my footage back onto my computer, delete the unnecessary crap and then let BackBlaze 'catch up' with the remaining files.
