Living far from family is hard. When they live in another country, even harder! We get to see my family in México maybe once a year, if we are lucky, and the rest of the time we rely on text messaging and international phone calls.
A few years back, we paid for international calls through our land line, but it started getting expensive. I had to keep my calls down to 5 or 10 minutes long, usually, and you know how hard that is when you have a large family on the other end of the line.
One day my cousin introduced me to Rebtel. She told me it was the best international call service she had ever used. So I gave it a try and haven’t looked back since.
In my experience, it is reliable, with excellent connections, and very affordable. Every country has a different rate and you can use any phone to make the call (You can also use a computer connected to the internet to call, see the details about that here). Last week, as an example, during one of my morning walks, I called my mom’s land line in México from my cellphone using Rebtel. The call lasted 58 minutes and I paid just $1.13. One slim dollar and 13 cents, with no international long distance charges from my cellphone carrier. You can hardly beat that.
