As a few of you know, we recently visted Turkey for the first time and are
still on a 'high' but I just found out that Vodafone Passport is not recognised
there so we had a bit of a shock regarding the cost of calling a landline back in the UK.
5 phone calls = 44 minutes = £76!! and Texts = 35p
Obviously, it was my fault for not finding this out beforehand but I hope that my
mistake might assist you!
Thank goodness I don't talk a lot
Depending on your network, that sounds about right. It's £1.68 a minute to make/receice calls and 50p a text on my contract when in non-EU countries. Always check before you travel! It's far cheaper to purchase a phone card and use public phones in Turkey, just less convenient.
We bought one for 5tl a couple of years ago and used it 5 times with each call lasting between 10-15 minutes.
I once had to phone from Sharm on my mobile as our flight was going to be delayed and was shocked the call was £13!
As far as I know, you can use a phone card to call any number. It'll just use more credits to a mobile, that's all. A phone card is by far the chepest way to call home.
