Skype To Go for Business Travellers

Skype has just become an even better tool for business travellers with the Feb 2011 launch of ‘Skype To Go’, which lets you make calls at Skype’s low rates from any mobile phone or landline to any other number.

Skype To Go works by assigning a ‘Skype phone number’ to any mobile or landline you nominate in a dozen countries (including Canada, the UK and Ireland, the USA, New Zealand plus a host of European countries).

The Skype To Go number is a local number for your location. For example, if you’re based in Singapore but regularly call partners in UK, you could assign a unique Skype To Go number with a Singapore (65) country code to their UK number.

How Skype To Go can work for travellers

For the traveller, if you were in Singapore and travelled to UK or Australia, then the Singapore office phone number could be assigned to a local number in the UK. Buying a local SIM card then makes calls via a mobile phone in the UK cheap, if not free depending on the cell phone package.
