Globetrotter Calling Card Review
One of the best reliable prepaid calling cards I've been using is called Globetrotter. I like that their advertised minutes are accurate and the call qualities are excellent for where ever I needed to call. I kind of look at the Globetrotter phone card as the all around handy man, or a Swiss pocket knife with many unique tools.
Another reason why I'm not afraid to recommend Globetrotter phone card is because it's only carried by a company called Speedy Pin. It's the only company that offers a 100% guarantee on all of their products.
You can watch a video review of Speedy Pin that I made where you can watch me log into my account.
I will also list some other good points about Globetrotter as well as the bad points. I have always stated in my articles that there is no such thing as a perfect prepaid phone card.

Globetrotter Phone Card Details
I already mentioned that I use Globetrotter phone card because there is a 100% guarantee offered by it's carrier Speedy Pin.
But there is a deeper underlying reason why I use and highly recommend this phone card. And the reason is, there is absolutely no fees.
If you've read my blog or other articles about the phone card industry then you know I only recommend consumers to use phone cards with no fees or to use a phone card with the least amount of fees if you don't have any other choice.
Usually phone cards with fees have low call per minute rates, which is the reason why people buy them. But later on they'll find out that they've been bitten in the ass with absurd fees.
What I find interesting is that Globetrotter has a great balance of no fees and low call per minutes rates for the most popular called countries. Here are some sample rates below (All rates are based on calls made from Continental USA to a land line):
- Argentina (Buenas Aires) - 1.54¢/minute
- China - 1.98¢/minute
- France - 2.42¢/minute
- Germany - 2.09¢/minute
- Guatemala - 10.48¢/minute
- India (Major cities) 3.8¢/minute
- Japan - 3.2¢/minute
- Mexico (Major cities) - 3.86¢/minute
- Pakistan - 9.4¢
- Philippines - 18.33¢/minute
- Russia (Moscow) 1.32¢/minute
- South Korea - 3.42¢/minute
- Thailand (Bangkok) 2.09¢/minute
- United Kingdom - 1.76¢/minute
Globetrotter's network is provided by NTC very reliable company that provides excellent call quality.
The only con about Globetrotter is they don't offer toll free access numbers, only local access. I know it's not a big deal for most, but there are many households who still have to pay per minute for local access. I use VOIP from Vonage so my local access calls are unlimited.
