SomersetSuzie,

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.

Susie,If you go to Turkey again buy a phone card.
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!

My pay as you go Tesco Mobile is cheaper at 69p a minute from Turkey - but I would still agree with the comments above and go for the Phone card. There are loads of phones about and the vast majority take phone cards.

I went to Turkey last summer and found it cheaper to buy a phone card- I bought one for 10 turkish Lira and got 200 minutes! this lasted me the whole week. They also had one that was 5tl for 100 minutes. You can buy them in some hotels but otherwise the post office have them too :) hope it helps :)

Hi, can you use the phone cards to call mobiles back in the UK or is it just for landlines? We're leaving our oldest for the first time ever but he is also going away at the same time but within the UK so I know I'll want to ring him as often as I can!

Dawn457,

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.

You get even more minutes per card if you phone after 8pm Turkish time. :tup
