Calls Abroad Are Dropping in Price – How Much Could YOU Save?

29th November 2020

At Planet Telecom, we are always conscious of the amount of money people spend on international calls. After the year that we’ve all had so far, it’s clear that we are all missing people who mean a lot to us. But what if your loved ones are based overseas? Unfortunately, mobile phone carriers and landline providers aren’t always likely to go ‘cheap’ when it comes to international calling. In fact, we’ve all been there – it’s still far too easy to run up large bills just on a few minutes of calling abroad.

We’ve always strived to make things as cheap as possible for our customers throughout 08 proxy number. However, this winter, we’re sharing even more good news with you all – as we’re cutting rates on a variety of different countries and territories, all of which will be even cheaper for you to dial over the Christmas and New Year period.

Until the pandemic starts to ease, it simply won’t be possible for many of us to meet up overseas. Therefore, it’s more than worthwhile looking into how you can save cash on calling and connecting to those who you’ve not seen in months!

Where Can I Save Money on Calling?

We are always keen to help you save money on calling as many different territories as possible across the globe. However, there are a handful of big savings you can make on calling phones and mobiles based out in Europe and across parts of Africa and Asia, too!

We have a full list of the countries where you’ll save money on calling this winter, but of course, it’s well worth highlighting some of the more frequently-dialled territories.

For example, calling France, Croatia, Hungary, and Belgium will be dropping in price for anyone getting in touch through our access number via 08. What’s more, anyone calling family who use mobile phones in Germany will also see a reduction in fees and rates heading towards the end of the year, too – the same applies to both mobiles and landlines in the Czech Republic, too.

Elsewhere in Europe, you will also save money calling Malta, Latvia, Switzerland, and Slovenia. However, the savings won’t stop there, as we’ve expanded our call price cutting even further around the globe.

Out in Jordan, Iran, India, Myanmar, South Africa, Palau, and Saudi, you’ll also find that calls are even cheaper through Planet Telecom following our call cuts. This means you’ll be able to keep in touch with family and friends based across Asia, Africa and even out towards Australasia without worrying about fees increasing.

For full information on call costs through our 08 number to mobiles and landlines based abroad, do always take the time to look at our full list of terms and inclusive rates.

How Does It All Work?

Planet Telecom offers what works quite like a switchboard. Instead of calling foreign numbers directly, you simply dial our 08 number first, which will give you access to cut rates on calls abroad. As you may imagine, different territories may cost different prices to call, which is why it is always a good idea to check this information out before you pick up the phone.

Then, you’ll simply need to enter in the number you’d like to call, including area code and international dialling prefix, and we will connect your call. You’ll be able to call from mobiles as well as landlines in the UK, and you’ll get access to calls at a fraction of costs you’d normally pay directly via your carrier or phone provider.

However, you must make sure that you are covered to call 08 numbers through your phone package! While plenty of mobile tariffs and even pay as you go SIMs have inclusive 08 numbers rolling through, there are still chances you may end up paying through the noise for these numbers if you are not properly protected.

Therefore, you should always make a point of checking out your coverage with your provider or make a point of adding on a booster or bolt on to ensure you are covered. For more information, do always make a point of checking out our terms, as well as your carrier’s. The last thing you’re going to want is to be out of pocket on calling people at this time of year!

Why Use Planet Telecom to Call Abroad?

In this day and age, it is a crying shame that so many people end up paying high rates for a quick call or two overseas. The world is shrinking, and as such, we would have hoped that there would be more of a push to reduce international charges by now! Sadly, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

That’s why we step in! We want to make sure that you have access to brilliant call rates for international conversations. Why should you have to pay higher prices just to speak to the people whom you love and miss?

We think it’s more than time you looked into ways in which you can save yourself money by keeping in touch with international friends and family. Rather than risk adding more to your everyday bills by just calling numbers outright, it makes perfect sense to run via access number or proxy. This way, you can ensure you have more money to spend on those all-important Christmas gifts – and any bills likely to come your way from other providers in the New Year!

We want to help make keeping in touch with people as affordable as possible. This should especially be the case for calling abroad! In 2020, we’ve all found that keeping in touch is essential – and while we’re all hoping for normality to resume by this time next year (if not sooner!), it makes sense to take advantage of long distance calls now which you won’t have to pay through the nose for.
