4 Tips for Making International Calls

June 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 103

If you are a world traveler, whether for business or pleasure, you have likely encountered more than one occasion where you wanted to reach out to your loved ones back at home to catch up, share a big event or connect on a meaningful day such as birthdays or holidays. But international phone calls have notoriously been expensive and difficult to make. Not only do you have to buy calling cards, but you have to monitor how many minutes you have left on your card so you know how long you can talk.

But the internet has changed all of this. Now, more people are turning online to make their calls overseas. Here are a few tips for making cheap international calls easier and better.

1. Use VOIP phone services - Voice over IP is a way to make calls via the internet. VOIP international call services help people use internet bandwidth to make phone calls instead of using phone lines. The difference is calls made via the internet are significantly less expensive, whereas calls made on landlines can cost quite a bit of money when dialing outside of the country. These services also give customers more options since everything is handled online, such as automatic top-up of account balances.

2. Work with a company you trust - It is important to use a company you can rely on when establishing which service to use while traveling or living abroad. Find one that has solid customer service and support available seven days a week. If you need to get in touch with somebody quickly, you want to know you are using a service that can be relied upon anytime, anywhere.

3. Buy a quality headset - While making your calls, it is important to be able to hear the person clearly on the other line, while also making yourself clear to them. Using a high quality headset can help you have better conversations without using as many minutes or racking up frustration by not being able to hear or understand the other person.

4. Use a service with flexibility - Now, companies are allowing customers to make phone calls via the internet but on their mobile devices. These services allow people to make cheap international calls from anywhere without incurring high debt for phone conversations with their loved ones.

Staying in touch with friends and family while on the road or living abroad does not have to be costly if the right services are used. Work with a company you can trust and who gives you the flexibility you need and you will never feel far from home.
