Can I call people in other countries with Skype?

With Skype, it’s easy to call people in other countries. You can make a call from Skype to someone else on Skype; from Skype to someone on their mobile or landline; and from any phone with Skype to Go.

Skype-to-Skype calls are free. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, or where the person you’re calling is. It doesn’t even matter if you’re using Skype on a computer, mobile phone or tablet*. As long as you’re both using Skype, the call is completely free.

You can make Skype-to-Skype calls using video or just voice – it’s up to you. Make a voice call with up to 25 people at once and that’s free too (as long as everyone’s on Skype). If you want to have a video call with more than two people, that's also free.

* WiFi connection or mobile data plan required.

You can call someone on their mobile or landline from Skype. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world: if you’re signed in to Skype, you can call anyone, anywhere at low per minute rates. The price you pay depends on the country you’re calling to, not the country you’re calling from.

Pay as you go using Skype Credit, or buy a monthly subscription to a particular country or region.

If you’re away from your computer, you can make low-cost international calls to friends and family from your mobile or any landline. You just need to add your friends as Skype To Go™ contacts, and we’ll give you a special Skype To Go number for each of them. Then simply dial these numbers to call your friends from any phone.

It doesn’t cost anything to set up a Skype To Go number, but you will need to have some Skype Credit or a subscription to set up more than one number.
