Nowadays, anyone being away from home can choose among several available options for making international calls. In the case that you need to make a call back home (or abroad) during your holidays in Santorini, you can do so in one of the ways described in the next section. Undoubtedly, there are several other ways available; however, we present here the ones we feel more convenient.

Making international calls in a cost-effective way

1. If access to the internet is available to you during your stay in Santorini, we recommend you use an online calling and messaging application, such as Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger, Meet etc. They are all great and for free; so, all you need to do is to choose your favorite one and connect your mobile device (smartphone or tablet) or your laptop to the internet. Usually, hotels and villas in Santorini offer free access to the internet, both in their guest-rooms and their common areas. Hence, using the online applications option along with a free internet connection guaranties you an absolutely free call. Just make sure you book a hotel or villa that offers the free Wi-Fi service. Of course, making a call through one of the above applications requires that both ends of the call are signed up to the same application, both have access to the internet and both use a capable mobile device or/and a PC (that is, smartphone, tablet, desktop pc, laptop pc and all their possible combinations).

2. If you need to call abroad and specifically to an actual landline or mobile phone number then a few of the aforementioned online applications allow you to do so by buying credit for calls. Although this option is not the most cost-effective, it is a useful and often a convenient one.

3. Another, simple option for making an international call from Santorini is to buy yourself an international calling card. It is a practical solution since you can buy a card online or in several shops/stores and then use it from a local landline phone (for instance at your hotel). You can buy an international calling card at a preset value (e,g, 6€, 13€, 25€ etc) that provides you with a unique access number to be used for your calls. The unique access number is either printed directly on the front side of the card or needs to be revealed by scratching a spot at the back side of the card. The use of a calling card is quite simple: from a local phone you dial a service number given on the card, then you dial your unique access number and then you enter the actual number you wish to call. Applicable rates for the call depend mainly on where you are calling to.
