Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 7, 2005
A leading provider of international telecommunications services today announced the completion of a new service customized for the fast growing Mexico tourist trade.
The new service includes an enhanced version of the well known 1-800-555-1212 number in the USA and Canada, a toll-free access service that lets tourists in Mexico place collect, credit card, third party and Bell Calling Card calls to people in the U.S. & Canada using an automated attendant, or live operator services. This innovative service now works from any phone in Mexico, including pay phones, without the need of a prepaid card. A tourist when travelling anywhere in Mexico simply needs to remember to dial a "00" in front of the 1-800-555-1212 number they've come to know and trust (001-800-555-1212).
According to telecom officials, a strong focus on the tourist market clearly differentiates 001-800-555-1212 from any competition. "…Unlike other providers that charge enormous rates to tourists trying to call back home, 001-800-555-1212 has established itself already as the preeminent operator services company in the USA and Canada, and now will do so in Mexico..."
In March 2004, international travel to Mexico generated more than US$1 billion in revenues in the one month, according to statistics released by Mexico's Tourism Secretariat.
Figures also revealed that more than 5.2 million international tourists visited Mexico during the first quarter of 2004, 14.6 percent more than during the same period last year.
Also breaking records was the average spending of international tourists while in Mexico, which was also reported at an all-time high of US$724 in the first quarter of 2004, up from US$690 during the same period in 2003.
According to recently published reports, tourists will spend more than $25 million on international calls from Mexico during the high season periods. The report also reveals that tourists are just as heavy users of international calling from Mexico as the nationals that reside there. These trends demonstrate that more than 90 percent of tourists make frequent calls from Mexico while on vacation.
