0843 telephone numbers are ‘special rate service numbers’ used by organisations such as ticket booking services and support lines. They are normally charged at a higher rate than calls to most other landlines.
The cost of calling business 0843 numbers is split into two parts. The first part is the ‘access charge’ which is the phone company’s standard charge for calling these numbers. The second part is the ‘service charge’ which can vary and is applied by the organisation you are calling. Please note they must advise you the cost of this charge before you call.
So, how much will it cost you to call an 0843 number from a BT landline or mobile?
Calls from a BT landline cost 12p per minute plus the service charge.
Calls from a BT mobile cost 30p per minute plus the service charge.
