While traveling throughout Europe you will no doubt need to use a phone at one time or another. Of course you’ll want to call home and talk to family, friends and maybe even forbid, some business. For these calls you have the obvious choice of using your mobile phone. Read the choices below for retaining international services on your mobile phone and using optional internet connections for free service.
There is also the phone in your hotel room or public phones. Hotel rooms phone charges can be expensive and should only be used as a last resort. You can always have your hotel consierge or receptionist make reservations for you at no cost. Use public phones to call locally or within the country to avoisdcostly calls.
That depends on a numbers of factors.
You will have plenty of sources to get connected to the internet while in Europe. The question is whether you want to be able to connect to all the services while being mobile. Maybe you will only need a phone in the case of an emergency or to make local calls for reservations, etc. Then use all your internet time calling back home, blogging, etc., while at your hotel connected to their wifi service or at a wifi hotspot.
Here are several other options that can save you more money other than using your phone provider when making phone calls. Using internet options may allow you to completely avoid using your phone service to make calls.
Apple devices use a program that allows you to connect to another Apple device whether it is an iPhone, iPad or iMac and have a visual and audio conversation. As long as both parties have an internet connection you should be able to face time someone else at anytime. Remember both parties need to have Apple products with face time enabled. Make sure the other party has it enable on their device in settings.
This service works the same as Face Time with a audio and visual connection. Both users must have Google accounts and be enrolled in Google Hangouts. All you need is a internet connection, sign into to your google account and contact the other party. This service like Face Time is free and if you have a gmail account you can use your normal sign on and password and access hangouts from your Google+ account.
Each country in Europe has its own code for calling to that particular country. Just dial the number as you would normally when making a long distance call in the US but, dial the country code in place of the 1.
