How To Call With Your Mobile Phone And Save Money While Traveling

ou most likely have little idea how much you have to pay when abroad and on vacation.

When you leave the country your Mobile enters the “home area” of the destination country and your carrier pays an international transit fee for this call to the destination carrier. For this service you have to pay an extra fee additional to your standard domestic rate. Some carriers charge up to $2 roaming fee to route the call.

Let’s say your friend calls you, using her Mobile, when you are on holiday in Europe.

Who pays for what?

You have to pay for roaming fees and the standard domestic rate when you call from Europe or within one of the European countries. You also have to pay for roaming when you get a call from the USA.

Of course, your friend has to pay the standard domestic rate for her call.

But the roaming fee to reach you in Europe will be billed to you.

The roaming fees are always billed in increments of one minutes. So if you only talk for half a minute, you have to pay for a full minute.

Whenever you make a Mobile call, you have to pay for the airtime used , including incoming and toll free calls. Calling a toll free number only eliminates the long distance fee that would be charged to you.

Sometimes, when you are calling into another network, you have to pay an access fee. These fees can apply for each network access to fee once a day. These fees can be up to $9.95 for access of the network in which you are roaming.

Do not forget taxes on your cellular phone bill you have to pay when you are back at home.
