With so many advertisements in the media the choice of calling cards and their rates can be baffling. When you just want to call your loved ones away from home or make an important overseas call for business you just want a cheap calling card to get you connected - no bells. no whistles.
Some communications companies have a lot of advertising and will try to use low rates to lure the customer in, they will even send out sales reps with premium business cards to bring in more business ... and generally they have a very high success rate doing this. The thing with cheap rates is they may not be as cheap as you are led to believe...
What you dont see is all the hidden charges within the calls, some of the deals offered by companies may seem to good to be true and sadly they probably are as they contain surcharges extra to the cost advertised.
When purchasing a pre-paid calling card make sure you shop around, and always read the small print for the extra costs involved. Pre-paid cards will appeal mainly to those who travel for business.
If you look in dicount shops you will find an array of calling cards on offer, you should remember that brand isnt everything some of the most well known brands of calling cards may work out to be the most expensive in the long run, it is very important that you shop around for the best and cheapest ongoing deal. Good Luck!
