Press release from: QueryClick Ltd

A UK based cheap international call provider has pledged to help people living in Britain keep in touch with family members and friends in Thailand as the country begins its new year celebrations. currently offers over 250 access codes that allow consumers to make cheap international calls at a heavily discounted rate; Thailand is just one of the countries serviced by the company.

Traditionally celebrated from the 13th - 15th of April, the Songkran festival now features week-long street parties and water fights.

Celebrations in the northern city of Chiang Mai run for most of the month and are extremely popular amongst travellers and tourists looking to immerse themselves in Thai culture as well as finding a rather unconventional way to cool down from the intense heat. spokesperson Andy Steele hopes the service – which allows callers to dial landlines and mobiles for just 1p a minute - will allow individuals based in Britain to wish loved ones a happy new year.

“Songkran is a really exciting time of year to visit Thailand, not just for the great weather but for the party atmosphere that runs from north to south for most of April.

“Needless to say, Thailand is a particularly popular destination for tourists during April and it's understandable that family and friends will want to keep in touch with loved ones during their travels or perhaps wish Thai residents a happy new year too.”

Firstnumber's service is currently one of the cheapest on the market by offering more generously discounted calls than many of its competitors with calls to landlines and mobiles both priced at 1p a minute.

Firstnumber works by providing callers with a discount code with is placed at the start of the number they wish to call. The code then applies the discount to the call from the offset, allowing callers to save tens of pounds in comparison to a standard BT line.
