Calling abroad on a Capped tariff

Your Capped tariff gives you control over how much you spend when you’re calling abroad from the UK.

If you joined on or after 8 August 2013

Making calls or sending texts to numbers abroad isn’t included in your monthly allowance of UK calls, texts and data, so the cost of these will come out of your safety buffer. You’ll be charged at standard rates. See call charges from the UK to abroad.

If you don’t have a safety buffer you’ll be able to make calls abroad. Just remember that you could run up a larger than expected bill as you won’t get any warnings, other than when you get near your account limit.

If you joined before 8 August 2013

Making calls or sending texts to numbers abroad isn’t included in your monthly allowance of UK calls, texts and data, so you’ll need to top up before you can make a call abroad. You’ll be charged at standard rates. See call charges from the UK to abroad.

If you want a bit more flexibility, you can move to one of our newer tariffs which give you a safety buffer to control how much you want to spend. Find out more.
