Do you find that you need to make calls abroad more and more frequently? Is your mobile or landline carrier restricting you in terms of the number of calls you can make overseas? Are you finding calling such numbers expensive? Maybe it’s time to look for a free package which can allow you to connect to friends and family outside of the UK without the exorbitant rates you’re used to.

Thankfully, help is at hand. Call Center offers a fantastic free international call service whereby you can connect with those who may be far away at a price and rate which you can feasibly afford. Why should you ever have to pay through the nose just to connect with the people you love based in different territories?

We believe that you should never have to pay over the odds just to speak to somebody based outside the UK. While some UK mobile networks and carriers are starting to really bring down the price of calling overseas, the fact remains that it is still more than you should expect to pay in total. Therefore, you should certainly take advantage of our free international calls service if you are finding that you need to get in touch with people based abroad regularly.

But how do you use our free international calls service? Take a quick look at our guide below, and as always, do get in touch with our team if you have any major concerns or queries!

Check With Your Mobile Carrier

To be able to make free international calls with Call Center, you will need to dial an 08 number. Therefore, you must make sure that your mobile network or landline carrier will allow you to call numbers with these prefixes within your allowances.

Otherwise, when you call our 08 number proxies, which will connect you to our international calling service, you will find that you still get charged by your mobile network or landline provider. Thankfully, it is now commonplace for mobile providers to offer inclusive 08 calling, or at least add-on packages which you can use to cover your conversations to particular lines and numbers.

Carriers such as EE and Vodafone will offer you 0845 and 097 add on packages which you can apply from month to month, meaning that you will always be able to keep track of the calls you make to 08 numbers and take full advantage of our international calling service.

It’s important to check this before you use our service as you might end up paying more than you expect – and no one wants to have to handle a surprise bill at a later point in time!

Choose Your Prefix

Call Center offers two different prefix numbers which will allow you to dial straight through to the international phone you want to connect to. Both, as mentioned, are based on 08 number prefixes, meaning that you will be able to dial them directly from your mobile or landline providing that your carrier offers you coverage.

There’s absolutely no need for any kind of PIN or connection via Wi-Fi, meaning that our service is one of the most efficient and easiest to use for international calling across the board. You won’t even need to register with us to get started.

Simply choose a prefix number and dial it as you normally might from your mobile or landline – then, you simply need to enter in the number you want to connect to after dialling this prefix code. Do make sure that you enter in the international prefix for the number you’d like to call, of course!

How is This Service Free of Charge?

It is free to call internationally through Call Center’s international free proxies as you are essentially calling an 0845 or 0870 line. However, as mentioned, calling an 0845 number is only going to be free as far as your own mobile network or landline provider will allow it to be!

Calling 0845 numbers isn’t necessarily going to be free from network to network. As mentioned, these numbers are now largely included in your calls and minutes if you are on a specific tariff or plan. However, if you’re not, or if you go over your minutes allocated, you are still going to run up fees.

Therefore, do still make sure to keep track of how many minutes you use when you call our international access numbers. This way, there will be no nasty surprises waiting for you when your bill rolls in at the end of the month! The same, of course, applies if you are on pay as you go – keep an eye on how long your calls last, and there will be no reason why you should be running short on money.

Is This the Best Way to Call Internationally?

Absolutely! While most phone networks will allow you to call overseas mobiles and landlines, they will normally offer you such a service at a premium rate, or you’d normally need to add a service or package on to be able to access such a privilege. Therefore, it makes sense to take as quick and as easy a route as possible, and in most cases, that means just dialling up a proxy.

Our free international calling service removes any kind of need for registration or subscription, and what’s more, it also means that you can simply punch in a couple of numbers and get through to who you need to speak to.

Do also keep in mind that Call Center services the vast majority of international territories! Whether you’re calling France or Finland, Greece, or Germany, we will make calling internationally cheaper and more manageable than ever for you.

In this day and age, keeping in touch is everything! Therefore, it makes sense to reach out for a call package or service which is going to make calling your loved ones or business contacts based abroad that little bit easier to budget for. If that means making things completely free of charge, then so be it! Take a look at our international call services now to learn more.
