International Calls & Texts From the UK
Making International calls & texts from the UK are always chargeable & are not included in any allowances. Some might mistakenly believe that they count towards roaming allowances but when in the UK you are not roaming.
International calls & texts can be rather expensive but EE has a free add-on that anyone, on PAYG or contract, can apply for to give these calls & texts at a fraction of the standard rates. To do so just text CALL ABROAD to 150. It will then last forever on your account.
However it has recently become almost impossible to find out these CALL ABROAD rates from searching the EE website Help pages. For that reason I have decided to publish them here, as follows.
Pay Monthly CALL ABROAD Rates

Excellent post @XRaySpeX.
Just one for Ee why is Payg so much cheaper?!!!

What a star! Thanks you for posting that. I could not find the rates anywhere and had spent most of an hour looking.

Actually the free CALL ABROAD rates have now reappeared in the right Help place: How do I make cheaper calls and texts abroad from the UK?

@XRaySpeX, where are costs for sending text messages on the payg list? you provided.
I don't often call abroad, but do send load's of text, because it's faster and more convenient!! 😊

@Profile closed: It's under the 4th column of the table labelled "Text". It's 10p / text to any country.

Thank you for your help!
