Actually, most calling cards have an A to Z rate deck, which allows one to make domestic and long distance international phone calls. In other words, there is really ONE (1) type. However, as you elude to, some calling cards may only have access numbers for origination within one country, while others have world wide access numbers (local or toll-free).
