How to make cheap international calls from your mobile
Calling home or using international minutes to keep in touch with friends around the world isn’t cheap. International calling can add a huge extra fee to your monthly bill. Find out how to make international calls without racking up a huge bill, and discover Lycamobile.

Ready to go with your new Lycamobile SIM card? Here’s how to make cheap international calls with your new SIM:
- 1. Dial 00 followed by your country code for the destination you’re calling eg India is +91.
- 2. Dial the area code, removing the first 0 (except Italy, then you can keep the first 0).
- 3. Dial your number and press call.
- 4. Your international minutes only start when the call is connected.
Make sure you’re fully disconnected when you end the call, so you don’t continue to use your international minutes or credit.
If you run out of credit or minutes half-way through your call, you’ll be disconnected. Unlimited plans stop this happening. Or you can opt for automatic top-up, so you don’t have to manually add more credit to your account. You can choose when you want to top up and how much you want to add eg when your balance is under £5, so you’ll never run out of credit again.
Can I use my phone abroad?
Our international minutes make it easy and affordable for you to make cheap calls abroad and international calling from the UK only, though you won’t be charged extra in Europe if your plan has EU roaming.
Not all of our plans include EU roaming, so please check before you go to Europe. If you’re on Pay As You Go you can also use roaming if your account is in credit, and you’ll be charged at standard national rates. Receiving calls and texts is free.
Lycamobile keeps the cost of international calls down and customer satisfaction high. Start calling the world for less and connect to your international friends and family at unbeatable rates with Lycamobile.
