Calling cards to phone from Australia to another country

Does anyone know what a calling card would cost to call from Sydney to New Zealand? I've never used them before.

The cost of a local call..say 25 c and about 5 cents a minute. Pretty similar for Aust. to USA. Very good deal.

If you are calling from an hotel..check their charges for calls.

hi diane,

the phone cards cost A$10 each (hmm, they might sell $5 cards but i've not seen them). they can be bought at convenience stores everywhere. the call rates are very cheap. you call a local number on the card, key in the pin on the card, dial your international number and you're talking(literally!)

calls costs can be as low as 4 cents per minute to the US and canada. costs to auckland would be pretty cheap too - less than 10 cents per minute - depends on the card you buy. good point there about checking the call charges from your hotel room.

I bought a $10 Say G'Day calling card at xmas to call Canada from OZ. I believe it started with over 4 hours worth of time available, which was way more than we actually needed, so we left it with family to call us.

taylor06,

some of the phone cards have rates of 2 cents per minute to the US, Canada and UK. (sorry, no special mention of ireland). some of these cards have a connection fee with these very cheap rates. others have no connection fee but rates might be 5 cents per minute to those same countries. still very reasonable rates! even in my giggly schoolgirl days i couldn't chat on the phone for that long...lol.
