You’re Wasting Money Calling Overseas – With WowTel, You Can Call For Free!

Whether you’re running a business or regularly make calls from home, sometimes overseas calls are simply unavoidable. What if you have family who have moved abroad and you have no other way of keeping in contact?

Unfortunately, international calling rates through traditional telephone companies have always been a little on the high side. Unless you pay out for special call packages and features, you’re at risk of racking up the bills if you so much as dare to dial outside of the UK.

What if there was a cheaper way to keep in touch with people from all over the world without having to change your package around?

That’s where WowTel comes in.

WowTel does more than make international calls affordable – we can make them free depending on your current landline or mobile tariff.

There’s no smoke and mirrors here – we simply want to keep people connected for less. Here’s what you need to know.

How much do international calls from the UK usually cost?

When we say that international calls from the UK tend to be extortionate, we are not exaggerating. For example, on a standard contract, you’re looking at paying anywhere from about £1.50 to £3 per minute for far-away destinations!

Imagine you’re on the phone for a good hour – that’s £180 spent on one conversation. You might as well have booked return flights to go and see your friends and family in person!!

And, what if your business has to make overseas calls frequently? You’d be looking at a truly shocking bill to pay for every month – and regardless of what you add to your expenses, you don’t want to waste your corporate capital on telephone calls upfront.

It would be all the more disastrous to pay for these calls when there’s a quick, convenient, and free way to make calls overseas sitting right in front of you – through WowTel.

Why make international calls through WowTel?

WowTel offers a service you cannot beat. Not only can you call hundreds of international countries for free, but you can do so without even having to sign up!

All you need to do is dial the right code, and Bob’s your uncle. No lengthy contracts to pore through, no financial handcuffs – just call the right number through our proxy service and you can connect to people all over the globe.

There’s got to be a catch… right?

How does WowTel work if it’s free to use?

Honestly, there’s no catch. So, what’s WowTel’s magic secret to making free international calls? We’ll let you in on it, as it’s really not that magical!

If your phone service provider offers an inclusive calling plan (so, for example, if they offer the service to make free calls towards numbers such as 0845 or 0870,) then all you have to do is call one of our dialaround numbers to connect to an overseas provider.

You can then speak to mobiles and landlines outside of the UK without having to worry about costs escalating out of control.

Just make sure your telephone package covers you for 0870 and 0845 calls, and you’re free to use our proxies.

And, when we say international, we mean it. Our service allows you to call literally hundreds of countries, all for free!

What countries are included?

WowTel currently allows you to call hundreds of different territories for free – including Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Kenya, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey, Uruguay, the USA, and even the Vatican City. Phew!

And, that’s just for starters. Be sure to take a look through our full list of territories covered and start planning some much-needed chats with far-flung friends.

Remember to check your packages!

We’ve already mentioned this, but it’s worth hammering the point home! If you use our services and don’t have a telephone package that covers calls to 0845 and 0870 numbers, you’re at risk of getting charged extra.

For example, some telephone providers charge anywhere between 5p and 12p per minute for calls to numbers with these prefixes. Therefore, don’t start calling our proxy numbers until you’re certain you’re covered.

Otherwise, there really is no cheaper way to call people outside the UK from your landline or mobile. Why put up with rising costs?


There’s never a good reason for you to have to cut down the amount of time you talk to people. The worst of those reasons, in fact, is because of costs!

We’ve set up WowTel’s international proxy service to ensure everyone gets a chance to call the people they love in territories worldwide. Without this service, you’re at risk of running up extortionate per-minute rates which, frankly, should be consigned to the past.

The world is shrinking thanks to internet calling and the rise of video conferencing – which means, sadly, those of us still using landlines and mobiles to call abroad traditionally are still paying through the nose for the privilege.

Therefore, take a chance on WowTel and say no to international call charges. Check your tariff before you dial, and start speaking to the people you love regularly without those irritating extra fees.
