A skype to skype call will be free, but not to a landline.

I am not aware of a caller that will place international calls for free. You can get good rates from sites such as Skype or Vonage, but they will still have some cost to place the call to a landline.

I have one thought that may work. Does your office phone system have a VOIP module? If so many phone systems will allow a remote user to connect back to your offices phone system via VOIP and it places the call as though they were calling from your office. In that scenario there wouldn't be any additional cost.

hi awawada

thanks for the links , most of them say that i have to pay some in advance

"Buying credit entitles you to 120 Freedays (unless stated otherwise). This means you can call all countries marked as "Free" in our rates list for a period of 120 days at no costs. When the 120 days are over, the normal rate will be charged for these destinations. You can get more Freedays by topping up your account with credit. "
