For calling from the UK, yes you can find cheaper alternatives. It depends a bit on whether you have contract or payg here.

There are several mvno brands with cheap direct dialled international calls, rates 15 to 20p for European mobiles. And main networks have options similar to these, such as Orange Camel.

On contracts, some have reasonable int'l rates, such as O2 ITS with 17p to European mobiles. On some of the others you'd probably use a callthrough account on a landline number with rates perhaps down close to 10p, such as one of the Betamax VoIP brands.

Roaming in Europe, some global SIMs are 25p or so to mobiles, and so is O2's My Europe Extra add-on option. 3 has 25p rates as well, but I can't remember and haven't checked if this is only to UK or all of Europe
