If your tariff does not offer inclusive calls to landlines, or you are calling at a time of day when charges apply, typical rates for landline calls are between 6p and 12p per minute (depending on your phone company) plus between 16p and 19p per call. If you are calling from a mobile, the cost will be between 20p and 55p per minute (depending on your phone company).
0800 numbers are generally completely free to call both from landline phones and from mobiles; they have no service charge or access charge and don’t use up your phone plan’s “free minutes” allowance.
