How to Make Cheap Phone Calls While on the Road

Most people who travel need or want to keep in touch with friends, family or business associates while on the road.  Today with mobile phones and INTERNET connections in most locations it is becoming much easier and cheaper to stay in touch.  We have a few options that we have used to keep in touch while on international trips and have listed them below.  The best option really depends on the situation, countries calling to or from and options available to the traveler.  There are a few options commonly used.  These are listed below:

  • Making calls using and international mobile phone.  A convenient option but also by far the most expensive.  With a little planning the traveler can use one of the options below and save a significant amount of money. Calls from international mobiles can cost dollars per minute (depending on carriers and location) while the options below can be free or cost a few cents per minute.
  • Phone cards are an old standard that have been used by international callers for many years.  They can be convenient and the cost can vary as well as the quality.  Smart Global Call features a variety of phone cards that can be used from around 80 countries.  They have several premium cards that are high quality such as; Continental, Bizon, Mozart, AT&T.  Generally those rated 4 stars or better on the website.
  • Callback or what is also referred to as web-call. This is an interesting option and it is not commonly used or known.  More information can be obtained here or at the website. This is a good option for those who are calling from a high cost country and have either a mobile or land-line where they can receive calls directly.  In this case a caller will send a message via e-mail, send an SMS, call a special phone number or in some way signal a computer that will call the callers phone from a low cost country.  Therefore, the caller is not charged for making an international call from the high cost country but is only receiving a call.  We have used the web-call feature of the Continental Phone Card to make calls like this from several high cost countries in the Middle East and found it to be very handy.
  • Another option is Skype or PC-to-Phone service.  We think every international traveler should have Skype loaded on their lap top computer.  Get a Free download at Skype Down Load. It is very handy since it can be used to make free calls over the INTERNET to other Skype users and it can also be used to call from a PC to a mobile phone or land-line for a fee.  Skype is the most popular service of this kind but there are other less popular services that can be lower cost depending on the situation.  One similar service is REBTEL ( visit Free or Cheap Calls with Rebtel for more details).  It can be used like a phone card to make cheap calls from land-lines or mobile phones and it also has a PC-to-Phone features.  We have used it to make PC-to-Phone calls from high cost countries and it works fine.
There may be a few other options we are not aware of but this is a good summary of some common low cost products that are high quality, low cost as well as convenient.
