International Calling Bundles: Get International Minutes On Contract & Pay As You Go

If you regularly make international phone calls, getting an international calling bundle can save you substantial amounts of money.

In the UK, the vast majority of SIM-only contracts and Pay As You Go bundles only include an allowance of UK minutes, texts and mobile internet. For anyone who regularly calls abroad from their mobile phone, this often isn’t ideal as you’re left paying hugely expensive per-minute rates for international calling.

For instance, if your mobile networks charges 5p/minute for you to call abroad to other countries, using just 200 minutes would add £10/month to your phone bill. Getting an international bundle can therefore save you a lot of money, with up to 500 international minutes available on a bundle from £10/month.

In this article, we’ll review international calling bundles including those that work as a standalone product as those that work as an add-on. We’ll also compare the best value bundles for calling six specific countries: China, India, Italy, Poland, Romania and Spain.

Cheapest Pay As You Go Bundles: Best Prepaid Plans For Your Mobile

With a Pay As You Go bundle, you convert your credit into a one-month allowance of calls, texts and mobile internet. We compare the UK’s best value Pay As You Go bundles.

In the UK, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Pay As You Go deals. With more than 80 Pay As You Go bundles across 12 different mobile networks, the strongest prepaid deals can now rival those found on a Pay Monthly contract.

If you’re a regular mobile user, this should save you money compared to traditional Pay As You Go. You’ll also keep full control over how much you spend, with no need to sign any contracts or to undergo a credit check.

Unlimited Data Plans For Your Mobile Phone: Always-On, All-You-Can-Eat & More

In the UK, it’s possible to get an all-purpose unlimited data plan from £20/month. Find out how unlimited data plans compare across mobile networks.

Over the past few years, unlimited data plans have become rarer in the UK as mobile networks move towards charging for gigabytes and charging for the use of specific services. Thankfully, it’s still possible to get unlimited data on your smartphone from just £20/month if you’d like a worry-free smartphone experience.

In this article, we’ll compare unlimited data offerings across the UK mobile market. We’ve split these out into two distinct groups:

  1. All-purpose unlimited data plans: Use your unlimited data allowance on any app, service or website. This gives you much more flexibility as you’re not tied to a certain service in order to use your unlimited data allowance.
  2. Unlimited data plans for selected apps: Get an unlimited data allowance for use with selected apps or services. Typically, you’ll need to restrict your unlimited data usage to a whitelist of services chosen by your mobile network.

Of course, an all-purpose unlimited data plan gives you much more flexibility so this will normally be our recommended option where appropriate. However, it’s now becoming increasingly difficult to find these on the market with many mobile networks promoting the more restrictive plans for use on selected applications.

Vodafone ‘Pay As You Go 1’ Review: £1/day for Unlimited Minutes & 500MB Data

Vodafone has launched a new ‘Pay As You Go 1’ tariff where they promise you’ll “never spend more than £1 per day”.
