Cheap Calls to India - 1p a minute from a landline

It really couldn't be simpler to save yourself a fortune on your overseas calls to India from your landline. With Planet Numbers' International Call Saver service, all you have to do is dial a special Planet Numbers international access number immediately before you dial your normal overseas number. In this case, after dialling our call saver access number you would simply key in your normal number in India (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 India 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 India you're calling.

So, in a nutshell, to start making cheap calls to India from your landline, instead of just dialling the Indian 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 Indian phone number you wish to reach - don't forget you need to start with 0091 as usual.

For example, to call a number in New Delhi you would dial 0843 715 7777 then 0091 + 11 + the local number.

To end your call, hang up in the usual manner. And if you'd like to make another international call, just redial 0843 715 7777 first. Simple.

Please note: our current super-cheap per minute rate to India of 1p is a fixed rate when you're calling from a UK landline to an Indian landline or Indian mobile. The cost of calling India from your mobile phone may vary but currently can be as little as 1.5p a minute. Click on the links at the top of the page to find out more.

Save a massive 32.6p per minute vs BT

The call will appear on your bill in the normal way, but the number dialed will show as 0843 715 7777. More importantly, instead of paying 33.6p per minute to call India via BT, you'll simply have paid 1p a minute ... all day, every day.

Call costs to India 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 India for so little when other phone networks charge me so much?" Well, there isn't one! We're able to offer cheap calls to India and charge you just 1p a minute for every call you make to India (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 India even works when international call barring is activated on your phone - which is why you can use us to call India from a phone box too. When you call India using Planet Numbers, 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 India appear on my next phone bill?

When you use Planet Numbers to make a super cheap call to a landline, or mobile, in India, the call will, of course, appear on your phone bill. But instead of appearing as an international call (in this case, to India) the international call will simply be shown as the Planet Numbers UK access number. So instead of the familiar number in India 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 Indian 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 India has become - especially if you're used to seeing the price of an international call to India from the likes of BT!

Make cheap calls to Indian mobiles too - just 1p a minute

You can make incredibly cheap calls to Indian mobile phones too, from any UK landline. It's exactly the same as if you were using Planet Numbers to call an Indian landline. In other words, you simply dial 0843 715 7777, followed by the full Indian mobile number that you wish to call, starting 0091 as usual. Planet Number calls to Indian mobiles using our 0843 715 7777 number are charged at just 1p per minute at all times, the same as calling Indian landlines.

Call charges to Indian mobiles from UK mobile phones may vary. Please check the cost of calling with your mobile provider.
