What Is a 0845 Number?

For only £3 per month you can choose to have a 0845 number. 0845 was introduced as a Lo-Call number as callers were charged at local rates (when called from landlines) no matter where they were.

At one time, there was no longer a different charge for local and national calls to ordinary geographic numbers so the marketing distinction was lost, and they were still slightly cheaper to call than geographic numbers (from landlines).

With the advent of UK Calling, the price of calls to these numbers has changed. Callers will be charged 2p per minute (inc VAT), plus their own phone company's access charge. We recommend the use of an 030/033 number instead.

They are often not dial-able from abroad and they can be charged at a high rate from mobiles.
