Phone cards
Feature and product list

Prepaid phone cards continue to be the most popular and cost effective way to make calls from any phone to anywhere in the world. Since they are prepaid, you never need coins and you do not need to worry about a surprise monthly bill.

Even those who have tried low-cost or free all-Internet based services like Skype, Yahoo, and others find they rely on their ZapTel phone card for the most consistent quality or for calls that matter most.

Since calling cards use the telephone network as well as the Internet, you have the best of both worlds - use any phone, to call anywhere, at any time, at very low rates. No Internet access required. Several ZapTel cards also provide a way to use any Internet-connected computer to dial your call as well if you are near your computer when you make international calls.


ZapTel works for you - not any one telecom carrier

Unlike many other online phone card providers, ZapTel is not tied to any one carrier. We research and shop much like you do to pick the telecom companies we feel are most reliable and offer the best rates and quality. If a product or company does not deliver a great value, we drop them. Currently we have three major providers that we have confidence in and we are integrated on the web with all three to make your online experience a great one.


More than just great rates

Besides the best rates, each card we offer may have additional time saving features easily managed from your online account dashboard. Watch for these feature icons:

Recharge Icon Rechargeable
Just a few mouse clicks to add up to $100 to your existing account anytime

Recharge Icon Speed Dial
Quickly set up a speed dial list online so pressing a *5 replaces dialing a lengthy international number.

Call Details Icon Real-time Call Details
Your call records are instantly available in your online account for many ZapTel cards - see where you called, when, and what it cost.

PINzap Icon PINzap™ Pinless dialing
Zap the need to enter your pin with this feature, works for each phone number that you register

Internet Dialing Icon Internet Dialing
Turns your Internet-connected laptop into your phone, no matter where you are in the world
