how can i make international calls

I've been a giffgaff member for 2 months now and I've been looking on the web site and am confused about how to make international calls, esp to Europe. Am I correct in saying the goodybag doesn't allow international calls and somehow I need to get credit? I find the information on the website a bit confusing.

Thanks to all who reply.

Yes, you need to have topup credit on your account to make calls to non-UK numbers. Simply go to Top-up, under what do you want to buy, select Buy Credit, select the ammount (from £10 to £30) and continue

Goodybags are only for UK phone numbers. To call a non-UK number, ie one from Europe, you'll have to top up £10 or more.

Don't forget when dialling to add their country's code, ie +1 (for USA) or +44 (for UK from abroad).
