Default Low Call costs from Spain to UK

In the UK, to call abroad I use CALL18866 which gives me low cost calls (2p a minute). Is there a similar service available to use from Spain?

The Eurodirect Phone Card is quite good. You can get more info on the link below. It costs about 2.3 cents per minute to a UK landline. You pay 6 or 12 euros and you get 45 days from activiating the card to use it.

we use the eurodirect card, and it also covers you for calls to the USA for the same costs as to the UK.

Most are rip offs, I call my son through voipcheap on the PC but through my landline to UK mobile, 8cents connection and 8 cents a min call.
You just put your landline number into direct call box and the destination number in the other box with country codes.
Then click direct call, when you finish click the red phone to end call otherwise the call meter keeps ticking on ???

Do you need some kind of headset to use that like Skype?

You can use one but for the sake of the connection fee 8 cents versus 30 or so €`s for a decent head set, I tried a cheapo set but not so good as the phone.

The phone can be in any room you like, away from the pc.
But I assume you need a broadband connection for the pc, as I dont think it would work on dialup.

Its a free download, so just download it and have a read up on it.
If you want to call mobiles or landlines through the direct call way you just have to put in 10 €`s worth of credit to cover the mobile calls and the connections from your phone.
The credit is on running so you dont lose it, it covers you for 90 days free landline calls, after this period there is a slight charge for calls, but if you put more credit on you get another 90 days free calls, its handy if you call mobiles also cos it is just taken out the credit and no where else can you call UK mobiles for 8 c a min.
