How quickly check if you need a visa for particular country?

Did you ever have a situation when you wanted to find out if you need a visa to particular country or several countries and was limited by time to go to their embassy websites?

Here is a solution (click here) - the website allows you to carry out a check if you need visa or any other special arrangements before you travel to particular destination, also you will be able to check same for connecting countries.

The above tool is well trustworthy, since the technology behind it is used by most airlines worldwide to allow them to stop people boarding planes without necessary entry clearance or visa or not qualifying due to other travel arrangements, otherwise an airline may face hefty fine imposed by country where such passengers would be heading.

How to make cheap international calls from any landline? (United Kingdom)

If you have British Telecom (BT) or Post Office or Primus or Sky or TalkTalk or Virgin landline and need or want to call abroad for reasonable charges (i.e. much cheaper than your landline provider charges) you can use special access numbers for particular destination you going to call.
These numbers are provided by Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephone companies who act as independent override providers and have competitive prices. But please take into account that these numbers do change time to time, so it is important to check them before you call.

Here is main comparison site I always use to find access numbers for particular country:

On the above website you can select to see access numbers to call landlines or mobiles, these are shown separately, latter are a bit more expensive.

Points to bear in mind:
  • Always double check prices on providers website before calling.
  • For companies where no accounts needed - you'll usually be charged your provider's set up fee (also known as call connection fee) too. For example, current BT set up fee is 15.97p (01.01.2015). BT set up fee is charged per every chargeable call you make.
