How to save money on international calls

Calling cards

Making international calls can be really expensive. One of the cheapest ways to keep in touch with your family and friends is to use an international prepaid calling card.

Prepaid international calling cards offer you a wide range of advantages on international calls:

  • They usually offer the lowest rates available - you can save up to 90% of the cost of a normal call.
  • You can use them from every phone (work, home, mobile and public phones)
  • If you use a toll-free number, you can call from work or a friend's phone without them being charged for the call.

It's easy to control your spending and avoid the 'bad surprise' of an astronomical monthly phone bill. Card providers offer such cheap calls because they buy high quantities of international minutes at large discounts. Prepaidzero  is an international calling card provider.

If you don't want to buy an international prepaid calling card, there are some alternatives. Some mobile applications make it possible to call and/or text for free by using a Wi-Fi network or mobile data. Examples are Skype, Viber and WhatsApp. If both you and the person you want to contact have the same app installed you can stay in touch for free.
