Cheap calls to Germany??
Hi, I am wondering if someone could recommend cheap calling options from the UK to Germany. My calls will be +30 min.
Where can I buy international calling cards in the UK? Which ones are most suited to my needs? How many minutes / hours do they last? What do they cost?
Thank you for your comments

http://www.loiol.co.uk or http://www.cheapestinternationalcalls.com - to call Germany would be from 1p/m! no need to register or prepay - just choose best price at the moment and dial from a landline. From a phonecards would be a bit more expensive, no phonecard can beat companies like Telediscount, Abroadtel, Dialwise etc - recomended sites above compares those companies.Anonymous 28 Nov 2005, 11:08 - Report

Have you checked out www.crazytel.co.uk? You top up any telephone number you wish ( your mobile, your landline or even your friend's mobile...) from a landline, and call any international or mobile destination using only one access number.Anonymous 27 Jun 2006, 06:06 - Report

I use another option to make calls to Germany for 1p/min:
register your landline with www.1899.com (or co.uk?) for free and then use the prefix 1899.
But u need a credit card...zaubi 26 Oct 2007, 10:34 - Report

Moreover,for every spent minute you can get 2 pence on your account.When you abroad incoming call for u will cost 1-3 pence.Many other benefits,i can not explain all.No monthly contract needed.No hidden charges.I promise you will not regret.

Planet Numbers have lowered their prices again - you can now phone Germany (and most of Europe) for only 1.5p per minute without any prepayments or registration.
see http://www.planet-numbers.co.uk/international.jsp for a full country index, or for just Germany, see: http://www.planet-numbers.co.uk/phone_germany.jspJK 13 Jan 2008, 12:38 - Report
Hello again, sorry but there is a mistake on the post from me above: The Cherry Call SMS cost to phone Germany is not 0.5p/min, but actually 2p a minute....but this is still recommended from your mobile phone.
Our cheaper service is to dial 0844 3030 777 (landlines can call 0844 numbers cheaper than mobiles) and costs 1.5p per minute at all times.
See http://www.cherry-call.co.uk/europe/phone_germany.jsp for full details.Robin James 20 Jan 2008, 02:08 - Report
