As a long time business traveler can I just share one recommendation for low cost calling.

Look up TALK360, this Netherlands based service gives great calling rates to and from anywhere in the world.

I use it to make all my calls to clients as it's by the far the most cost effective service I have found.

As long as you have a decent internet connection the call quality is superior to any other service I have tried. (I've tried them all!).

Very easy to use with a good app.

Check it out for yourself.

I call many different countries and is the best overall package for business use I have found as well as great service.
But if you have found one that works better for you then that's good.

That makes no sense? Talk360 is an internet calling service that you use from an app on your phone or tablet. You buy call credit in advance like you do on Giffgaff. The international rates to landlines and mobiles is very good and provided you have a decent internet connection you get very good clarity. The person you are calling sees your mobile number as though you were calling direct.

@jossy22 

 

In addition to what talk360 charges you, you will have to pay (to giffgaff, or to whatever network you are on) for the data that is used by the app.

 

On giffgaff, if you have a goodybag you probably wouldn't notice the data the app uses because it will come from the goodybag. But if you have only non-goodybag credit, you will be paying giffgaff for that data at 5p/MB (or substantially more if you're calling from outside EEA), in addition to whatever you're paying talk360.
