Before you set foot on your travel escapades, make sure you are ready with your calling cards. Never go out of town without any prepaid phone card in hand. Prepaid phone cards make long distance calls more affordable and practical. If you have a card, you can make a call anytime and anywhere you want. You no longer have to rush to the nearest public phone booth to call for emergency purposes or to catch up with family members and friends left at home. Calling through phone cards is much cheaper compared to making long distance calls from your hotel room. Phone cards are available both for domestic and international calls.
If you are in an international trip, it is best to purchase international calling cards. Make sure you know the rates and fees of the international calling card you will buy. Different international calling cards usually apply different rates and fees. Some international phone cards charge connection fees for every call and maintenance fees either weekly or monthly. International phone cards usually come with a personal identification number (PIN) that the user can use to get access to the network and to make both international and domestic calls. It is also advisable to inquire about promos so you can make more calls with your international phone cards.
