If you are not careful, making an international phone call can cost you hundreds of dollars. However, with advances in smartphones and telecommunications, the right service or calling card can put you in contact with any country around the world for just a few dollars.

When looking for a service, keep a few things in mind. First, find a service with clearly defined rates. Some prepaid cards will take you through so many steps before connecting the call that you will have spent most of your money before even saying a word. Second, be wary of hidden fees. Maintenance and connection fees can be piled on after calls are made, making services much more expensive than they claim to be. Finally, look for a flexible plan. A prepaid card or service that only works between the United States and Canada, for example, is not worth the money.
