How to conference call Spain

Here’s a stat for you – Spain’s investment in the UK is more than the whole of the Latin America’s combined, making Spain one of the largest investors in the UK.

There are 900 UK companies currently operating in Spain, with businesses like Tunstall and Primark increasing their investment, while Dealz-Poundland, Stella McCartney and Jo Malone are among new UK investors in Spain.

If you want to join the legion of ex-pats and invest in a Spanish business opportunity – or even if you have business interests out there already –  you’ll need an easy and cost-effective way to keep in touch – which is where a conference call comes in.

And here’s how you can arrange one for up to 100 participants using nothing more than a mobile or landline telephone…

clockWhats’ the best time to call Spain from the UK?

Madrid sits just over 1,000 miles away from London and although there are regular flights that take around two-and-a-half hours to cover the distance, a conference call makes more sense than jumping a flight every time you need to talk shop.

If you’re going to keep in touch via conference call, bear in mind Spain is an hour ahead of the UK.

Do you need to dial the worldwide dial-in number when calling Spain from the UK?

No, the UK participants can simply dial the UK dial-in number when they are in the UK, and our system will automatically match your participants by your PIN.

What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to Spain?

If you’re travelling to Spain, check the latest travel advice where Covid-19 restrictions are concerned and be prepared for plans to change at the last minute.

If you’ve ever been abroad, there’s a good chance you’ll have been to Spain at some point. The country welcomes millions of UK citizens every year, but there are some issues you may not be aware of when travelling there.

If you’re driving, some cities have low emission schemes in operation and apply vehicle restrictions to city centres.

Street crime can be a problem in some tourist areas and thieves usually to target money and passports so don’t keep them all in one place. And make sure you take the same precautions in Spain as you would at home where jewelry and valuables are concerned.

There is a terrorist risk and some demonstrations in certain parts of the country can turn violent.

If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact the nearest British embassy, consulate or high commission.

If you have an emergency, call 112.
