7.0p a minute to call Sri Lanka – from your landline

It really couldn’t be simpler to save yourself a fortune on your overseas calls to Sri Lanka With Planet Numbers’ International Call Saver service, all you have to do is dial a special Planet Numbers international access number immediately before you dial your normal overseas number. In this case, after dialling our access number you would simply key in your normal number in Sri Lanka (ie you need to key in the full international dial code, not forgetting the zero zero at the start of the number). This means that your call to Sri Lanka is now handled by Planet Numbers, instead of your usual provider, and therefore the call will be charged to you at only 7.0p a minute, regardless of when you call or where in Sri Lanka you’re calling. So, in a nutshell, to start making cheaper calls to Sri Lanka, instead of just dialling the Sri Lankan number directly, you call 0872 549 7777 first (this is the access number). Once connected to Planet Numbers you’ll hear a second dial tone. Now dial the full Sri Lankan phone number you wish to reach – don’t forget you need to start with 0061 as usual. For example, to call a number in Colombo, you would dial then 0061 + 2 + the local number. To end your call, hang up in the usual manner. And if you’d like to make another international call, just redial 0872 549 7777 first. Simple. Please note: our current super-cheap per minute rate to Sri Lanka of 7.0p is a fixed rate when you’re calling from a BT landline to an Sri Lankan landline. The cost of calling Sri Lanka from your mobile phone may vary but currently can be as little as 12.0p a minute. Click on the links at the top of the page to find out more.

Save a massive 101.1p per minute vs BT

The call will appear on your bill in the normal way, but the number dialed will show as 0872 549 7777. More importantly, instead of paying 108.10p per minute to call Sri Lanka via BT, you’ll simply have paid 7.0p a minute … all day, every day.

No sign-up or registration required – try it right now!

Call costs to Sri Lanka that are just too good to be true?

It sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it? Perhaps you’re thinking “Where’s the catch? How can I call Sri Lanka for so little when other phone networks charge me so much?” Well, there isn’t one! We’re able to offer calls to Sri Lanka and charge just 7.0p a minute for every call you make to Sri Lanka simply by diverting your call via our own network and therefore not having to pay for the use of BT’s international phone system. Planet Numbers International Call Saver service to Sri Lanka even works when international call barring is activated on your phone – which is why you can use us to call Sri Lanka from a phone box too. When you call Sri Lanka using Planet Number, the phone thinks you’re dialling a UK number … which indeed you are – the Planet Numbers access number. The phone doesn’t need to know that you’re dialling an international number immediately after!

How will the Planet Numbers call to Sri Lanka appear on my next phone bill?

When you use Planet Numbers to make a super cheap call to a landline, or mobile, in Sri Lanka, the call will, of course, appear on your phone bill. But instead of appearing as an international call (in this case, to Sri Lanka) the international call will simply be shown as the Planet Numbers UK access number. So instead of the familiar number in Sri Lanka appearing, you’ll simply see 0872 549 7777. It’s always a good idea to make a note of the Planet Numbers access number for calling Sri Lanka so that when your bill arrives you, or whoever looks after the payment of your bill, recognises the call. One thing is for certain, however, you’ll be sure to appreciate how tiny the cost of calling Sri Lanka has become – especially if you’re used to seeing the price of an international call to Sri Lanka from the likes of BT!

With a Planet Numbers ‘phone card’, you can use any mobile, on any network (apart from Virgin) to make super-cheap calls to Sri Lanka .

How international phone cards work

To buy £5 of international calling credit, text PLANET to 68888 from any mobile, apart from Virgin ones. We’ll text you back a PIN, instantly, and you can use our service immediately. There’s no ‘card’ involved!

To make a call, you just dial 0161 328 2820, then enter your PIN and your full Sri Lanka number, including 00. See below for a list of local dialling codes.

There’s a p connection charge per call but the cost of calling our 0161 access number will normally be covered by your regular ‘minutes’ allowance. Please check if you’re unsure.

Be careful not to press your phone’s Call button more than once or you might get charged for the call twice. You have a full 60 days to use your £5 credit. After this time you will lose any remaining credit and your PIN will no longer work. Please note that WE NEVER AUTOMATICALLY RENEW your phone card.

To add another £5, simply text PLANET to 68888 as before.

If the line’s engaged, hang up!

If the international number you want to chat to is engaged, or nobody answers, hang up. Your network supplier may charge you for the call to our 0161 line even if you don’t complete the international call. Most mobile users will be covered by their regular monthly minutes allowance, of course.
