New price cap on calls and texts to Europe kicks in today


The price of making an international call from the UK to another EU country will be capped at around 20p/min from today – but you’re still likely to be able to save by calling via the internet.

According to the European Commission, the standard price of making a call between two EU countries is three times higher on average than the standard price of a domestic call, while standard text prices are twice as high. 

But from today, EU consumers using their mobiles or landlines to call or text someone in another EU country will be charged a maximum of 19 cents per minute, or 6 cents per text message, plus VAT. This equates to around 20p/min and 6p/text.
