Cheap International Calls - Germany

Many people living in the USA make frequent phone calls to friends and family living in Germany and, the converse is also true, many people living in Germany make frequent calls to friends and family in the USA. We find that Germany is one of the most popular international calling destinations in the world. There is a significant amount of communication traffic between the two countries.

As a result of this activity, there are several good quality prepaid international calling products on the market for making low cost calls between Germany and North America. These range from phone cards to virtual prepaid calling plans like Tel3Advantage. There are a full range of phone cards available, ranging from those with very cheap advertised rates (less than 1 cent per minute) to those that are rather expensive (more than 5 or 10 cents per minute). We prefer those with more moderate rates (around 2 or 3 cents per minute) because these tend to have lower hidden fees and feature much better call quality. It is also a good idea to check for access number availability before purchasing a phone card. Many of the very cheap phone cards have a limited number of local access numbers and charge a high rate for toll free access.

One of the best options for making international calls to Germany from the USA or Canada is Tel3Advantage. They only charge 2 cents per minute to most German cities and they have a large number of local access numbers. Tel3 Advantage is also a good option because it features high call quality and no hidden fees or taxes. It also has a full range of features not found with most phone cards. It is a good option for those who make frequent international phone calls to any location but it has especially good rates for Germany.
