Recharge phone cards during international travels

February 11th, 2008

"I have a friend or family member whose phone card balance I want to keepfull during their international travels.  What calling cards would be best for my calling need?"

This is a question we often hear in our Customer Service group, usually from parents of students traveling or studying abroad. 

ZapTel offers three rechargeable global cards: Global Line, Study Abroad Student’s Choice, and True North.  The balances for these cards can be viewed online when you log into your ZapTel account.

The current balance is listed under the PIN so you can always view how much value the card has on it.  To recharge the card, simply click on the recharge link in the grey box next to the PIN and follow the shopping cart screens just as you would when making your initial purchase.

After your purchase has been completed, you can see the recharge amount added to the PIN in your account dashboard.

If you’re traveling internationally, you, too, can recharge your phone card while abroad.  If you have internet access, just log on to your ZapTel dashboard with your e-mail address and password, and you can recharge from your account.  Or, if you don’t plan on bringing your computer, there are many internet cafes you can use to log on to your account and recharge your card as well.
