Making sure your phone card will work outside the USA - Travel Calling Cards

April 12th, 2009

“Can I use my ZapTel phone card while traveling outside the USA?”

My quick answer to this question is maybe. All ZapTel phone cards will work when placing calls from the USA. However, not all phone cards in our store will work if you’re planning to use it outside the USA.

ZapTel carries 7 different phone cards that can be used from outside the USA when traveling:

To search for cards that will  work from your calling destination, click here to do a rate search.  Make sure to select the country you’ll be calling from in the “Call From” box and the destination you’ll be calling to in the “Calling To” box.

When you’re getting ready for your trip, make sure that you have the correct access numbers to use from your calling destination.  Since every country has different telephone number  formatting, each country has a unique access number to dial.  You can find these numbers by clicking the “Access Number” link next to your PIN in your ZapTel Account Dashboard, or clicking on the tab that says “Access Numbers” on the card specifications page.

I also recommend that you read through our Traveler Phone Card FAQ page which lists some helpful tips on what to know when using your phone card outside the USA and what to find out before using your card.

If you have questions about your phone card and how to use it outside the USA, pleae contact our Customer Service Department at
