Using phone in Spain

I am trying to find out how much it costs to make a local call in Spain.  I have looked on Using your Phone Abroad on the website and it says 16p a minute, but is that for calls back to the UK?  Or is it the same whether you are calling the UK or somewhere in Spain?

Also, I understand that prices are reducing in April 2016 - anyone know what they will be?

Re: Using phone in Spain

Be careful, it could actually cost you more from April 30th depending on what your network charges in the UK outside of your allowance. 

Here are the prices:

As Virgin charge around 40p out of bundle - you could be screwed.

We will have to see if there is a package available or if they will let you use inclusive minutes.

Re: Using phone in Spain

I am still looking for an answer to my question.  I am on 30 day sim only, going to Spain next week - still trying to find out how much the occasional phone call in Spain will cost me.   Can no one tell me?

Also, interested to know what prices will be after 30 April 2016 - doesn't Virgin know what they will be charging yet. (Not bothered in data, just calls).  Some of the other networks have already informed their customers.

Re: Using phone in Spain

I think these prices still apply.

Not sure what the new ones will be
