I'm currently traveling across Europe, making stops in Barcelona, Rome, Paris, and Amsterdam. I need a calling card that I can use to make calls within Europe, as well as be able to call the states. I tried searching on Google for a calling card; but having a hard time separating SEO spam from genuinely good online cards.

So I though I'd ask here for any recommendations for a calling card that can be used for Intra-Europe as well as Europe to U.S. calls that could be purchased online.

Updated the question to be less subjective. I think the question is good. – VMAtm Jul 5 '11 at 8:06
What kind of device are you hoping to make the calls from? Payphones? Mobiles? Landline phones in friends houses? Computers? (It'll affect what your best option is likely to be) – Gagravarr Jul 5 '11 at 8:24
@VMAtm: Yes I much prefer massaging them into shape to shutting them down. But I like to warn them due to some surprsing shut down questions in the recent past. – hippietrail Jul 5 '11 at 8:54

I've used RebTel successfully for that. They have local access numbers, apps for your phone, and international access numbers.
