How to make a collect call in Athens


I will be arriving in Athens on Jun 27, just before the general strike. I wonder how do i make a collect call if the strike interrupts my trip and I need to make a claim to my insurance company.

Do i need to call a local number first?

You call the international operator (someone can advise, hopefully which number it is), and then ask then to place the collect call for you. they will call you back, though.
