Has anyone ever used Pingo (phone card) in France/UK to call US?

Jump to last reply

Hi all...

Traveling to London & Paris in May. I am considering a Pingo "phone card" (not really a card; just an account number) for calling back to the US on occasion just to keep in touch with my kids.

I've used Union telecard's Europe Blue card in the past, but they have no access numbers in France or the UK.

I'll only be making a dozen calls or so total, from my hotel phone (yes...I know there may be a chanrge for that.)

I have access to a global cell phone, but Sim card calling seems to cost nearly $1 per minute, whereas, even with hotel fees, a virtual card will probably run around 25 cents a minute at most.

Is Pingo reliable, easy to use, etc.?

I will appreciate all comments, suggestions, experiences.

Thanks.
SS
