Q&A


By Ilona Kauremszky


Q: Our family is flying next month to Europe for three weeks. The countries we plan on visiting are Slovakia and Bulgaria. I'll be calling my mother who won't be joining us. But I'll be updating her on our trip as we stop at new cities. Do you know of a phone service I can use?

A: Consular Affairs Canada recommends Canada Direct, which is an automated international access service that allows you to reach a bilingual Canadian operator 24/7. You can obtain this service by contacting any of Canada's major telecommunications companies in association with Teleglobe Canada.

The only charge you pay for is the Canadian international long distance rate associated with the calling card of the Canadian company you are using. When you place your phone call, you will use Canadian international long-distance rates and you will be billed in Canadian dollars.

The international network is available from more than 130 countries. Be sure to clarify your calling location and destination countries when you speak to the Canada Direct operator.
