Ratings and Reviews
I love it
Great app , easy to make a call ! Fantastic way to keep in touch with friends and family at only one click without worrying about the extra cost for an international call !
I can never run out my credit now as there is the option for an automatically top up when credit gets below a certain amount but also for those who are not using an automatic top up there is a reminder to top up when credit gets too low or near the expiring date ! I ve been using this international card for over 6 years calling from a land line then from my mobile but the new app had simplified everything to a normal mobile call , a click on the app then choose your contact and call ! I can see the charge per minute for the call and also the credit remaining at the end of the call ! Very pleased with this ! Top notch app ! 👍🏻

Quality isn’t consistent
I wrote this review about a year ago but didn’t post, so just thought to review again today as a past problem is now happening again.——-It’s overall ok, easy to call and connect. Only thing I don’t like is when you have 30 seconds remaining it interrupts you to tell you the credit is running out then most times after that voice prompt I can’t hear the other person I’m talking to at all. It’s quiet for the rest of the 15-30 seconds which is annoying. Lately it had begun to just cut soon after that voice prompt. Today the voice prompt came but I was able to continue with my conversation. Tesco calling card need to look into this issue and be consistent- it’s my money wasted on those 30 seconds . I’ve been using this card for the past few years.
Today just tried to speak to customer service and the man there was unnecessarily rude. I wanted to add that I still ring from outside the app as advised on a similar complaint. Please try to resolve this issue so that I can get my full money’s worth. I use the card to communicate with a someone overseas who doesn’t have access to WhatsApp calls and I top up quite a lot and it’s not fair that this problem happens more frequently than not. Thank you. I would have put 3 star if not for the rude customer service . I had to ring again to speak to someone nicer.

What amazing service!
Tesco International calling is a brilliant service which enables you to call UK landlines inexpensively.
It’s a pay as you go service which is easy to top from your phone once you have set up your payment details via your bank.
Since 1 January 2021 when we left the EU roaming charges once again became applicable for UK Citizens.
As a consequence, Tesco ask you the first time you use the service if you would only like to make calls using WiFi. If yes, it means you avoid roaming charges and therefore the price depending on the country you are calling from remains the same as when still in the EU.
I use the service as I am frequently in Belgium and the cost is 1p per minute! Excellent value and service. I would really recommend it.
