- 2/11/2017 - Due to unforseen price increases we are no longer able to offer the 1p promotional rate to South Africa for the month of December 2017. We apologies for any inconvenience.
- 19/10/2017 - Calls to South Africa landlines and mobiles will be increasing to 20p per minute (0800 access number) and 19p a minute (020 access number).
To view our current Phonecard call rates please see the following guides:
*Between 12 noon and midnight GMT, there will be a 4p a minute surcharge using a UK mobile to call a 'free destination' or 1p Saturday destination using the 0800 access number.
Things you need to know
- Calling 0800 access numbers from a mobile phone – there will be an additional charge of 4p per minute to your card.
- Rates are rounded up in pence-per-minute to two decimal places and include VAT.
- Calls to international mobile numbers or non-geographic number (one that isn’t linked to a specific place, like 0870 in the UK), the rate won’t be the same as the one shown above.

How it works
You can pick up a phonecard from any Post Office branch.
- You’ll find a unique PIN and two access numbers (beginning 0800 & 020) on the back. Make sure you know which is the right access number for you before you dial it.
- Use the Freephone number, 0800 to avoid being charged by your service provider. 0800 numbers are free for landlines and mobiles.
- Tap in your PIN when you’re prompted.
- When you hear the next prompt, dial the number you want. Make sure you include the full international code.
