Olympic Phone Cards

People who wish to make international calls to or from Beijing, China this summer can easily find a wide range of low cost options. The handiest option for travelers are phone cards and there are many to chose from. They range from well know higher priced brands like AT&T Phone Cards to relatively new, unknown brands like the Lucky Minutes Phone Card from NTC.

Of course there is a big cost difference. A call from Beijing to the USA will cost 90 cents per minute using an AT&T phone card while the same call will cost 41 cents per minute using Lucky Minutes.

There are many more options for making calls from the USA and other countries to Beijing. There is also a big price difference between these options. A call from the USA to China using an AT&T Phone Card will cost 30 cents per minute while the same call with the Lucky Minutes Phone Card will cost around 2 cents per minute using a toll free access number. To be fair, the Lucky Minutes phone card is a specialized card that has great rates on calls too and from China while the AT&T phone card has much wider applications. Those who want to make a lot of international calls to China this summer from the USA or Canada should consider Tel3Advantage prepaid long distance. It offers a lot of advantages over phone cards at rates that are less than 2 cents per minute.

Phone cards and other low cost calling options can be conveniently purchased on-line from established websites specializing in low cost international calling options. There are also a variety of websites specializing in International Phone Cards.
