Daylight Saving Time around the world

Daylight Saving Time (sometimes referred to as Summer Time or abbreviated as DST) is an idea that moving clocks forward by an hour in the Summer months when days are longer might help citizens take advantage of the "extra" hour of daylight. Over 70 countries use Daylight Saving Time, affecting over 1 Billion people on our planet!

Daylight Saving Time starts and stops at different dates around the world. This can make it difficult to know for certain the best time for making phone calls to the other side of the world.  Also, keep in mind that the Northern and Southern Hemispheres on our planet have opposite seasons, so Australia can be observing their Summer Time adjustments while North America is experiencing Winter. is your best resource for checking out the time before you call, as we do all the work of keeping up with each location's rules for observing Daylight Saving Time.
