Free International Calls: Is It Possible?13th December 2016
When it comes to chatting with friends and family or arranging business conferences with delegates from overseas, phone bills can quickly add up. Whether you’re looking to cut your business expenditure or you just want to chat with your friends and family when they head off on holiday, there is a simple way to make free international phone calls without a catch.
How to make free international calls
Although the idea of totally free calls seems unlikely, it is entirely possible when you use the service offered by Planet Numbers. If your phone’s call plan includes 0845 numbers, you can make free international calls to hundreds of countries around the world, simply by dialling an access number before starting your phone call.
By calling 0845 222 6666 and then typing in the overseas number which you would like to call, you can connect to your friends, family and business colleagues quickly and easily – and without an expensive mobile phone bill at the end of the month.
The benefits of using Planet Number’s free international calls service
Perhaps the most obvious benefit of using a free international calls service is the fact you no longer have to pay to speak to your loved ones, which will allow you to spend more time on the phone. However, additional benefits include the fact you do not need a separate SIM card for your overseas calls, and that you do not need to register or remember a PIN before you start your conversations.
Countries where free international calls are supported
By using the free international calls service offered by Planet Numbers, you will be able to make calls to countries across the globe without spending a penny. Countries such as Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hawaii, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Italy, Malaysia and Malta are included. Other countries which can be called for free using Planet Number’s service include Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey and the USA.

Using free international calls over Skype and online software
Although online voice software such as Skype and Facebook Messenger has made it easier than ever to call loved ones for free, doing so can eat up your mobile data allowance – an allowance that can be particularly expensive overseas where Wi-Fi and 4G connections are not as readily available. By switching to a more traditional method of communication, you will be able to remain in regular, reliable contact even when Wi-Fi signals are unavailable, or you’re in an area with low connectivity.
