Number of Web Cam Hosts
BongaCams has around 4,000 performers and even at off-peak times there are around 100 online chat rooms. The site also encourages users to become models, but this calls for a bit of a wild side and “ready to go action”.
I have always appreciated websites that tell you right off the bat how much the video chatting will cost you. BongaCams goes even further by supplying a detailed and accurate price list that any user can go through easily. It’s no wonders though, because this site has nothing to be embarrassed about. Prices are more than reasonable and users will get a lot of chatting done for the cost of a single cocktail in a bar. Chat per minute is at a fixed price, not a range, so there is no need to ask models about the price or wonder if you remembered to check the price before you invited her to private.
In short: 1 token is between € 0.08 - 0.19, depending on the packages you select. Spy chat costs 7 tokens per minute, group chat is 15 tokens per minute and private video chats go for 30 tokens per minute. A full private chat is the highest priced being 45 tokens per minute. You can tip for 20, 50, 100 or 200 tokens and I am sure those models will show you just how flexible they can be when they are tipped 200 tokens.

The host profile pages on BongaCams not very exciting. They are pretty amateur-looking and not especially inviting. The only thing about them that is a bit unique is the fact that they imitate FaceBook feed by showing you what the specific model has been up to, They also feature the following information:
- About the model
- Her likes and dislikes
- Models’ pictures
- Appearance and measurements
- The model’s friends
Contacting BongaCams support can be done by:
- Filling in the online help form
- Via Skype to bongacams
- Via email to [email protected]
- Calling via phone:(+372) 585-264-31
There is no FAQ page on BongaCams. This is a shame as it is always useful to search FAQ’s and get your much needed answers easily.
With 26 languages to choose from, it is safe to say you will understand what is going on no matter where you are from. Thumbs up to BongaCams to for actually writing the names of the languages in the specific language instead of only using the impossible flag system which calls for superman vision and an extensive knowledge of geography.
Pros and Cons of BongaCams
So many pros, so little time. This website has got numerous nice features, a video chat community vibe, decent prices and an excellent choice of models. Also, it really delivers on its promise by not having any extra charges, hidden fees or fine print that you later live to regret.
In all honesty, the biggest downside of this website is its somewhat stupid name, because in all other respects it really is pretty great. The profile pages are the only other thing that could use some spicing up!
BongaCams is a good choice in the adult webcam world and a highly-recommended one. Don’t waste too much time on the basic membership, because you’ll just end up saying no thanks to the suggestion when you purchase tokens like a million times. Instead, buy a few, get the bonus, start a live show and enjoy. This site will make sure you always enjoy yourself online.
