Budget Tips: How to Call Home from London For Free

When we travel, we always try to stay in touch with home. The problem is that this can be very expensive if you’re not careful. Avoid using your mobile phone, making calls from the hotel or using pay-phones as these are the most expensive options. We once came home to a $1200 phone bill!

You can call home for free if you use a service called Skype – a revolutionary communications tool. Setup an account before you go and have your friends and family do the same. It costs nothing to make Skype to Skype calls. You can even make them from a mobile phone that supports it (like an iPhone) so it’s just like talking on a phone. Or you can call for free from your computer (assuming you have access to WiFi).

If your friends and family don’t have Skype, you can pay to use it to make calls to them – you can call them like you would on a phone and you’ll only pay a few cents a minute.

You can also use Skype to make really cheap local calls while in Britain – so useful for booking tickets or arranging travel. You can actually use the service to get a local UK number (costs $18 for 3 months).

We won’t travel any other way now.
