1p a minute to call Australia - from your landline

It really couldn't be simpler to save yourself a fortune on your overseas calls to Australia. With Planet Numbers' International Call Saver service, all you have to do is dial a special Planet Numbers access number immediately before you dial your normal overseas number. In this case, after dialling our access number you would simply key in your normal number in Australia (ie you need to key in the full international dial code, not forgetting the 0061 at the start of the number).

This means that your call to Australia is now handled by Planet Numbers, instead of BT, and therefore the call will be charged to you at only 1p a minute, regardless of when you call or where in Australia you're calling.

So, in a nutshell, to start making cheap calls to Australia from your landline, instead of just dialling the Australian number directly, you call 0843 715 7777 first (this is the call saver access number). Once connected to Planet Numbers you'll hear a second dial tone. Now dial the full Australian phone number you wish to reach - don't forget you need to start with 0061 as usual.

For example, to call a number in Perth you would dial 0843 715 7777 then 0061 + 8 + the local number.

To end your call, hang up in the usual manner, unless you'd like to make another call to Australia. If so, don't hang up but dial ## on your telephone keypad. This will give you a new dial tone.

Please note: our current super-cheap per minute rate to Australia of 1p is a fixed rate when you're calling from a UK landline to an Australian landline. The cost of calling Australia from your mobile phone may vary but currently can be as little as 1p a minute. Click on the links at the top of the page to find out more.

Save a massive 31.3p per minute vs BT

Call costs to Australia that are just too good to be true?

It sounds almost too good to be true, doesn't it? Perhaps you're thinking "Where's the catch? How can I call Australia for so little when other phone networks charge me so much?" Well, there isn't one! We're able to offer cheap calls to Australia and charge you just 1p a minute for every call you make to Australia (from your landline or from your mobile) simply by diverting your call via our own internet network and therefore not having to pay for the use of BT's international telephone system.

Planet Numbers International Call Saver service to Australia even works when international call barring is activated on your phone - which is why you can use us to call Australia from a phone box too. When you call Australia using Planet Number, the phone thinks you're dialling a UK number ... which indeed you are - the Planet Numbers access number. The phone doesn't need to know that you're dialling a number on the other side of the world immediately after!

How will the Planet Numbers call to Australia appear on my next phone bill?

When you use Planet Numbers to make a super cheap call to a landline, or mobile, in Australia, the call will, of course, appear on your phone bill. But instead of appearing as an international call (in this case, to Australia) the international call will simply be shown as the Planet Numbers UK access number. So instead of the familiar number in Australia appearing, you'll simply see 0843 715 7777.

It's always a good idea to make a note of the Planet Numbers access number for cheap Australian calls so that when your bill arrives you, or whoever looks after the payment of your bill, recognises the call. One thing is for certain, however, you'll be sure to appreciate how tiny the cost of calling Australia has become - especially if you're used to seeing the price of an international call to Australia from the likes of BT!
