Calls between two travellers in the UK using a prepaid SIM Card from HolidayPhone

Are you travelling in a party? We strongly recommend purchasing HolidayPhone SIM cards for the whole group, so that you can call each other at super cheap rates during your trip! The rate for calls between two travellers using our English simcards equals that of local calls within UK as stated above. Just dial the English mobile phone number provided with the English SIM Card.

Make international calls from the UK

To make international calls using the English SIM card, just dial the number in international format starting with a + sign followed by the international country code and phone number without the leading zero in the area code.

Example: To call to the US (country code +1) for example (751) 122-3344 becomes +1 751 122 3344.

Receive calls in the UK

There is no cost for receiving calls dialed directly to your new number. If you choose HolidayPhone’s call forwarding option to your English prepaid SIM card you can receive calls dialed to your normal cell phone number just as usual. All calls are seamlessly forwarded to your English SIM card, without any international roaming charges. 

Locals in UK or travel companions who also use HolidayPhone can reach you easily just by dialing your new English cellphone number.
