Many contact centres use 0872 numbers, and this can be quite frustrating, because these numbers are not free to call on a mobile phone. Lycamobile charges 23 pence per minute to call an 0872 number, and on top of that the company that you are calling can opt to add an additional fee.
When you call an 0872 number, you will be told the fee that the company has set for that number. Whatever is mentioned is the amount that is going to be charged on top of the basic 23 pence per minute that Lycamobile is already charging you. Do not forget that, otherwise you may be hit with a fairly hefty charge at the end of the month, or run out of credit faster than you expect.
