'Bridal Gossip' Prompts Tesco to Give Away Free International Calls During Royal Wedding Service

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 20, 2011) - Tesco Calling Card is giving away tens of thousands of free phone calls to anywhere in the world during Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, allowing friends and family to share up-to-the-minute 'bridal gossip' wherever they are.

With billions of people worldwide set to watch the wedding, Tesco International Calling Card is expecting Brits to make more international phone calls on April 29th, the day of the Royal Wedding, than on Christmas Day - traditionally the busiest day of the year for phone calls.

In response to this, Tesco has decided to give away free international phone calls to landlines, from the moment the Royal Wedding service starts at 11.00am until 13.00pm, allowing customers to give friends and family a running commentary of events, as if they were sitting in the church pews themselves.

Graham Harris, Chief Executive Officer of Tesco Telecoms and Tesco Mobile said:

"Christmas Day is usually the peak day for calls abroad but this year we are expecting to see an even greater surge on the day of the Royal Wedding.

"The event is highly anticipated by people all over the world and everyone is going to be talking about it and sharing their experiences.

"We want to add to the celebrations and make these calls even cheaper for our customers by giving away thousands of free calls during the service."

The Tesco International Calling Card allows customers to make low cost international calls to destinations all across the world from any phone in UK, including landline phones, mobiles and payphones.

To take advantage of this Royal Wedding gift from Tesco, customers should simply purchase an International Calling Card from any Tesco store and follow the instructions for making calls on the back of the card when the Royal church service starts.

Tesco's International Calling Card could not be easier to use. In three simple steps customers can be speaking to friends and family abroad. Firstly, dial the access code available on back of the calling card (or accessible on www.tescocallingcard.com). Secondly, enter the PIN (available on the back of the calling card) and finally, dial the destination telephone number.

Free calls will commence from the moment the church service starts at 11.00am until 13.00pm.
