Ekit phone card

Hi,<BR><BR>I've decided to go with phone cards instead of brining or renting a cell.<BR><BR>Is the Ekit card the better value or should I just buy cards along the way?<BR><BR>After reading the Ekit site, it also seems really difficult to use. Anyone else use it? Was it less of a hassle than it looks?<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR>Cindy

    When you buy the phone card, though, can you only use it at a pay phone? I’ve heard that you can’t use it in your hotel rooms because it costs extra … so what the deal with this?

    You can get a European Union Calling Card which allows you call anywhere in the world from any European Union country. It costs about €10 and I think it was good for either 60 or 100 minutes to N.America (I think it was 100 minutes). I am assuming the same or similar rate also applies to calls to Aus/NZ. This card can be found in cigar shops, internet cafes and magazine shops. It had different toll free access numbers for every European Union country printed on the back. There were no connection charges either. I made calls from pay phones/phonebooths.
