Looking for plans with international calls?
It’s not always easy getting in touch with loved ones overseas. And when loved ones are living overseas for long periods of time, it’s only natural for you to want to keep in regular contact.
International calling has always had a reputation for being a pricey add-on to phone bills, but with the right plan you can call your loved ones as much as you like, without breaking the bank.
If you’re on the hunt for a plan that includes international calling features, here’s what you should look out for.
Plans with international calls
There are a number of plans that come with a discounted add-on for international calls. With the significant minutes of global calls, it makes sense to have a deal that helps customers save. If you know that you have to call people overseas on the regular, prepare yourself with the add-on, or a plan that includes international talk and text.
Inclusions to consider
When researching the best deals and plans that include international calls, here are a few of the factors you will want to consider.
Not every country is included as an international talk add-on or has the same rates, which is why you’ll want to look at what countries are included in the add on pack and international rates to make sure you don’t spend a fortune. If you choose a plan that includes a fixed international rate you will save money, but make sure these plans include the country you plan on calling.
If you plan on travelling on top of international calls, it makes sense to ensure your plan has global roaming. This helps travellers to call home and use their data overseas without it costing a fortune.
Inclusion of video calls
If you want to see a familiar face, you’ll want calls to include video calls. Make sure to check whether your plan includes data for video calls that don’t go overboard. You might even find other apps with video call features might work better for you, but if you’re videoing on the phone, you’ll want high speed, high quality mobile data throughout the month. This is where you’ll want to consider the data options, including unlimited packs, which may slow down your data after a certain cap.

Choosing the best plan
If you’ve settled with a plan you might have had for a few years, you might not be on the best plan for you. Outdated plans can sometimes result in you spending money on features you don’t use, or even simply spending far more than you need to. This is why it’s always good to research your options, or even speak to your current provider about whether there are better deals for you. Odds are there’s something out there that’ll suit you better.
SIM only plans
A lot of plans are attached to a pay-off plan for a new phone. These can make it easier to pay your bills and any debt, but usually come with a long contract and for it to be a reasonable plan you might be paying it off for 48 months. While some may prefer this, others may want the convenience of month-to-month contracts. If you’ve paid your phone up front, or have an existing mobile that you prefer, it’s good to consider a SIM only plan that lets you pay in advance, select your preferred features and update/change your plan if you aren’t happy. Dodo is happy to discuss your options when it comes to SIM only plans.
