Why should I use prepaid calling cards instead of regular
long distance service from my local company?
Whatever company you use for long distance calls there is
a risk that prices can go higher without notice and without
your acknowledge. When you get your bill it may be too late
to argue. Using prepaid service your risk is limited, so you
can manage your expenses. Besides, prepaid calling cards can
be used not only from your home, but also from any telephone,
even from a pay phone. Most of our cards are available to
use from Payphones, Mobiles and Hotels. In all cases we recommend
our clients to check the specific information of each phone
card before buying it to make the best decision.The third
reason is an ability to pick up a calling card with the best
rates for the countries you call to. You may ensure that we
have very favourable rate on calls to the most countries,
just see our calling rates list.

Currently we accept all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard,
