Cheap Calls to Egypt - 5p a minute from a landline

It really couldn't be simpler to save yourself a fortune on your calls to Egypt. 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 Egypt (ie you need to key in the full international dial code, not forgetting the zero zero at the start of the number).

This means that your call to Egypt is now handled by Planet Numbers, instead of BT, and therefore the call will be charged to you at only 5p a minute, regardless of when you call or where in Egypt you're calling.

So, in a nutshell, to start making cheap calls to Egypt from your landline, instead of just dialling the Egyptian number directly, you call 0843 723 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 Egyptian phone number you wish to reach - don't forget you need to start with 0020 as usual.

For example, to call a number in Cairo you would dial 0843 723 7777 then 0020 + 2 + the local number.

To end your call, hang up in the usual manner. If you'd like to make another international call, don't hang up, just dial ## to get a new dial tone. Simple.

Please note: our current super-cheap per minute rate to Egypt of 5p is a fixed rate when you're calling from a UK landline to an Egyptian landline. The cost of calling Egypt from your mobile phone may vary but currently can be as little as 5p a minute. Click on the links at the top of the page to find out more.

Save a massive 107.2p per minute vs BT

The call will appear on your bill in the normal way, but the number dialed will show as 0843 723 7777. More importantly, instead of paying 112.2p per minute to call Egypt via BT, you'll simply have paid 5p a minute ... all day, every day.

No sign-up or registration required - try it right now!

Call costs to Egypt 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 Egypt for so little when other phone networks charge me so much?" Well, there isn't one! We're able to offer cheap calls to Egypt and charge you just 5p a minute for every call you make to Egypt (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 Egypt even works when international call barring is activated on your phone - which is why you can use us to call Egypt from a phone box too. When you call Egypt 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!

Make cheap calls to Egyptian mobiles too - just 7p a minute

You can make incredibly cheap calls to Egyptian mobile phones too, from any UK landline. It's exactly the same as if you were using Planet Numbers to call an Egyptian landline. In other words, you simply dial 0872 549 7777, followed by the full Egyptian mobile number that you wish to call, starting 0020 as usual. Planet Number calls to Egyptian mobiles using our 0872 549 7777 number are charged at just 7p per minute at all times.

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

When you use Planet Numbers to make a super cheap call to a landline, or mobile, in Egypt, the call will, of course, appear on your phone bill. But instead of appearing as an international call (in this case, to Egypt) the international call will simply be shown as the Planet Numbers UK access number. So instead of the familiar number in Egypt appearing, you'll simply see 0843 723 7777.

It's always a good idea to make a note of the Planet Numbers access number for cheap Egyptian 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 Egypt has become - especially if you're used to seeing the price of an international call to Egypt from the likes of BT!
