Want to Make Cheaper International Calls? Here’s How

11th August 2020

Let’s face it – for the longest time, it’s been really expensive to make phone calls overseas. With the world shrinking all the time thanks to the internet, why are so many of us still paying premium rates for international calls? The fact is, home phone and mobile networks are still continuing to expect users to pay the price for very simple connections.

Have you found that your phone bills are starting to skyrocket as a result of calls you’re making to friends and family overseas? There are plenty of things you could try – but the easiest option might be to set up a prepaid international calling account with Planet Numbers.

We are all about saving our customers as much money as possible – and we really don’t think you should ever pay over the odds for calling overseas. So – how does a prepaid Planet Numbers account work, and how might it benefit you in the long run? Let’s take a look.prepaid cheap international calls

How Does International Calling Work with Planet Numbers?

Crucially, instead of calling an international number directly, you’ll need to call our 01 access number before the line that you’d like to connect to. This means that you’ll still have access to the international number you’d like to call, but you won’t be at the mercy of the expensive rates you might otherwise expect from your mobile carrier or home phone provider.

As you’ll be calling an 01 line, you’ll find that calls through our prepaid number are likely included within the numbers covered by your home phone or mobile tariff. All you need to do is register an account beforehand through Planet Numbers, and then top up your account to get started.

We offer low cost rates on calls to scores of different countries and territories. There is absolutely no subscription involved, and what’s more, we will never subject you to any kind of contract or tie-in. Therefore, you’ll be able to go ahead and top up time and again to call as many numbers as you like. This is a great way to spread the cost of any calls you need to make regularly.

Getting Started

Getting registered online is really simple. We’ve set up an online form which only takes a matter of minutes for you to fill out. All you’ll need to do is register a few bits of information and you’ll have access to an account that you can top up whenever you need it.

From just a minimum payment of £5, you can top up your account securely through PayPal through our online service as well as through our phone service. There’s no need for you to worry about setting up any kind of PIN or password, as we will make sure to register your personal phone numbers with your account.

Whenever you call in, you’ll be able to hear how much credit you have available to make calls. This means that you’re never going to be in any doubt as to how much you have available before you start calling an international number of your choice.

Once you call the local number we provide for access, you’ll need to enter in the full international number that you want to call. This includes the full international dialling code, so that we can direct your call to where you need it to go.

What Are the Benefits of Calling Internationally with Planet Numbers?

Calling internationally through an access number from Planet Numbers will allow you to keep in touch with friends and family on the other side of the world without you having to run up those extortionate mobile and home phone bills that have been draining your bank account.

What’s more, when you top up your credit with us, it’ll never expire. This means that you can top up your account to make calls in January, and you’ll still be able to make calls in December if you don’t use the service!

It’s altogether easier to call through an 01 number than to have to keep a close eye on your bills every five seconds. If you’re on a mobile phone contract or are paying monthly with a home phone service, then you’re likely already keeping close tabs on everything you spend. When you prepay, you’re taking away the need to worry after the event. You have complete control over everything you spend, and you can budget for the calls you want to make.

Calling internationally through Planet Numbers means that you instantly save money on calling numbers overseas. Even better, there’s no need for you to tie yourself in to any more deals or contracts. We understand that more and more of our customers are tying themselves into contracts that they simply don’t want to be part of.

Therefore, pay as you go is likely to be a great option for those who don’t want to have to monitor their bills in the long term. With Planet Numbers, there’s always the added bonus that you get to save stacks of cash on international calls, too. Who doesn’t want to save money?
