Antigua and Barbuda / Telephone

The international dialling code from the UK for Antigua is 001 268 followed by seven digits. When on-island simply dial the seven digits. Overseas phone calls can be made from most phone booths around the island, payment for which is by credit card or a local pre-paid LIME (Cable & Wireless) phone card.

If you are staying in a villa you should check to see if the phone allows international calls. Some have debars, which will have to be lifted. There is usually a deposit for this service.

A GSM roaming mobile service is now available on the island, so mobile phones from abroad will work (though calls can still be pretty expensive). The network is LIME (Cable & Wireless) and APUA PCS. Mobile phones can be rented from LIME t 480 2647 and Digicel, t 480 2050, both located in Woods Mall on the outskirts of St John’s.

Internet and WiFi services are available at most hotels, and some villas. There are also several internet cafes in the key tourist areas.
