Calls to 0844 numbers are typically charged at higher rates than calls to normal landlines due to the inclusion of a surcharge to pay for the service being provided. Total 0843-number call costs will typically be anywhere from 8p to 62p per minute, plus an additional per-call charge of up to 7p. 0843 calls are not compatible with “free minutes”.
Calling an 0344 number costs exactly the same as calling a friend or neighbour on their home phone. Phone tariffs that come with inclusive minutes or ‘free’ calls to landlines include calls to 0344 numbers in exactly the same way as for normal landline numbers starting 01 or 02. If you don’t have any “free minutes” with your landline package, you will typically be charged up to 10p per minute. This can vary significantly depending on the day and the time you are making the call. If you call from a mobile and you don’t have any ‘free minutes’ left, the cost of calling an 0344 number will typically be between 10p and 40p per minute.
