THE AT&T TeleTicket phonecard, which can now be bought at British travel agencies and Keith Prowse outlets (071-937 2777), is a pre-paid card useable from any push-button phone in the United States. Unlike European phonecards, the AT&T card does not have to be inserted into a phone with a special slot. Calls are made by dialling a toll-free access number and punching in the numbers on the card.

TeleTickets cost pounds 4.50 for 10 units, pounds 11.25 for 25 units, and pounds 22.50 for 50 units. Calls to the UK from America cost three units a minute; calls within America cost one unit a minute.
