Calling the world with Skype
A few weeks ago we made calls to any landline or cell phone within the US and Canada free until the end of the year. Well, we also want you to be able to make free calls to friends and family who are abroad. To help you do just that, we’ve topped up your account with 60 minutes of free credit. We hope you enjoy it.

Calling anyone else on Skype, anywhere in the world is always free. But did you know that you can also call ordinary phone numbers around the world at really low rates?

UK 2.1¢ per minute
Mexico (Mexico City) 2.1¢ per minute
Germany 2.1¢ per minute
Japan 2.1¢ per minute

See all rates

How to make your free international calls
It’s simple. Just open Skype, then click the dial tab. Choose the country you want to call from the menu, then either dial or type the phone number. Press the big green button and “hey presto”. It’s just like a regular call.

You can see how much Skype Credit you have left in the top right corner.

Start calling now

Be sure to make at least one call to an ordinary phone from Skype before June 30, 2006 to get the free hour of calling.
