Calling Canadian mobile number in the UK

Hope this isn't a silly question!  Canadian relatives are visiting the UK soon, I'm going to be contacting them via their mobile. Would these calls be included in my plan or charged extra as international calls?

I pay £1 per month for  2000 minutes + 5000 SMS + 1GB browsing. Not in contract. I was originally with Life mobile when it was taken over by plusnet and so far I have been kept on the same plan at the same cost.

Calls to their Canadian mobile will be charged as an international call to Canada. According to this https://www.plus.net/help/mobile/roaming-and-international-calls/ Canada is in Band 2 and would cost £1/minute

Buy them a UK sim card from supermarket in advance and get them to use whilst here.

If their phone is dual sim, they can just add in the UK one.
