Can I continue to make calls when I reach my monthly limit of minutes?

Yes, you can continue to make calls if you have a little Skype Credit or purchase another subscription if your current one runs out.

If you purchase an identical subscription to the one you already have (for example, the same country and same number of minutes), the second subscription will become active when the billing period for the first subscription ends.

However, if you buy a subscription for calls to the same country but with a different number of minutes, the second subscription will become active as soon as you have used up all the minutes in the first subscription.

You can easily see how many minutes you have left on your subscription(s). Learn how.

With an unlimited subscription you don’t need to worry about reaching your monthly allowance. We offer unlimited subscriptions* for calls to landlines in 65 destinations (and for some destinations, calls to mobiles are included too).

*A fair usage policy applies.
