Egypt has been one of the most attractive countries for Russian tourists for many years. As a rule, vacationers mostly stay in comfortable hotels on the sea coast, and spend most of their time directly on the hotel territory. Therefore, a tourist who is faced with the need to call from Egypt to Russia, first of all, will use such a service as an international call from the hotel.
It should be noted that this method is one of the most expensive and impractical. The easiest way to call from Egypt to Russia or to any other country in the world is from an ordinary pay phone installed on one of the city streets. The cost of such a call cannot be compared to a call from a hotel. The fact is that any answered or unanswered phone call from the hotel is charged as a conversation lasting three minutes (even if the conversation as such did not take place). And the cost of a minute of conversation in this case will be at least six dollars. But a call from a pay phone will be charged at the regular rate (the cost of a minute is about $ 3.5). A telephone card can be purchased at many local shops or supermarkets and costs between 20, 30 and 50 Egyptian pounds. Having bought the cheapest card for 20 Egyptian pounds, you can use it to pay for 2-3 minutes of conversation with a subscriber from Russia. Unfortunately, not all payphones on the streets of Egyptian cities have access to an international line, but in any case, you can find a suitable payphone even in the smallest town. To make a call to Russia, you need to dial the following combination of numbers: 00-7-city code - subscriber's number. In this case, 00 is the international dialing code and 7 is the country code.
