My wife is taking an unexpected short (5 days) trip to Scotland this weekend. It will be the first time she’s been away from our kids for more than a day, and she’s kind of freaking out and I told her that she should call often. After saying that, I realized I didn’t know the best (most cost-effective) way for her to do that.
I imagine her current cell phone won’t work overseas.
I imagine some options are calling collect from payphones, purchasing a prepaid calling card with international minutes (are these available?) and calling from payphones, purchasing some sort of disposable cell phone with international minutes, etc?
Any recommendations? Ideally I’d like to give her the option to call as much as she wants during that 5 day period.
