Ever Wonder How to Call the USA from Greece Unlimited?

If you’re interested in studying abroad in the birthplace of democracy, you can enjoy the freedom of keeping in touch with home because, with Vonage, you can call the USA from Greece as much as you like¹.

A trip to Greece is going to broaden your horizons in ways you can not yet predict, but one thing you can predict is the desire for calling the US from Greece. Some large regions of rural Greece do not offer the standards of communication you’re used to in the US. So to call the US from Greece can be a huge headache outside of Athens or other well-populated cities. That’s where Vonage steps in.

Vonage World® gives you the ability to call from Greece to the USA for one low monthly rate. The setup process is as simple as 1, 2, 3.

  1. We send you the Vonage Box™, our VoIP adapter that sends and receives calls over the Internet using your own US-based local number!
  2. You can then take the Vonage Box with you to Greece and plug it into a high-speed Internet connection.
  3. Enjoy all the unlimited¹ calling from Greece to the USA you want! Since a US phone number will be making its way overseas with you, you and your friends can call each other at domestic prices. Then, when you get back from your journey abroad, you can keep your box and number. Say goodbye to international dialing problems and sky-high rates. You can be reached at the same number at home, at school in the US or while studying in Greece.

Seriously, it’s that basic.

All calls are considered local calls thanks to the US number assigned to the box, which means you can talk as long as you want¹ without worrying about long distance charges. And check out these other game-changing extras that are included in the plan:

  • Unlimited¹ calling to landlines in over 60 countries — like the US and Greece!
  • Unlimited¹ calling to US mobiles as well as more than 10 other countries!
  • Free Vonage-to-Vonage calls.
  • Voicemail, Caller ID, Call Waiting and many other standard features.

If you’re more apt to use an app than to sign up for a whole phone plan, we also have a solution for you: Vonage Mobile®. It’s our new Android™ and iPhone® answer to how to call the US from Greece without adding any new technology to your life.

What about the country itself, though?

There’s more to a trip like this than just knowing how to call from Greece to the USA. Here are some tidbits for the young traveler headed to Greece:

  • Have a “ruinous” time. In Athens you’ll find an effective system of mass transit. Many of the underground railway stations even feature ruins that were discovered during the tunneling process. The subway is a veritable museum in and of itself, so be sure to ride the rails even if you have no particular destination in mind.
  • Tourism. This industry accounts for over an eighth of the Greek national economy by some estimates, so you should always keep an eye out for the many deals available for student tourists as well as for nonstudents. In some cases, these deals can be doubled up and used to garner truly cheap travel or housing packages.
  • Protect your skin. The Mediterranean is home to many of the prime sun tanning nations, including Greece. Make sure that you pack some sunscreen so you can enjoy the outdoors without getting burned.

OK, you and your parents both know how to call the US from Greece now, correct?

Correct. Vonage Mobile and Vonage World!

So get calling the US from Greece as soon as you touch down and get settled.
