Calls to 0800 numbers are completely free to all GiffGaff customers.
Previously, this was not the case. Before June 2015 calls to 0800 numbers from mobiles incurred costs upwards of 20p a minute. Calls to 0800 numbers have always been free from landlines, and in June 2015 OFCOM brought in changes to bring the mobile market in line with this.
Because of these changes, all GiffGaff customers may call any 0800 free of charge. If you are a pay-as-you-go customer, calling an 0800 number will not affect your credit. If you have an allowance of minutes, time spent on 0800 calls will not come out of that allowance.
The rules do not apply to calls from abroad. If calling from abroad using your GiffGaff mobile, calls to 0800 numbers will cost the same as calls to geographic UK telephone numbers. Prices will depend on your location, plan, and roaming rates.
