An 0845 number is known as a service number and has special fees attached to it. The total cost of calling the number is made up of two parts, the first part is the service charge and is what the company you are calling charges you for providing a service, usually some form of customer service. This service charge can be up to a maximum of 7p per minute depending on the company which you call. The second part of the charge is the access charge and is what your network operator charges you for connecting the call. This charge will vary depending on your phone network provider and whether you are calling from a landline or mobile phone, with calls from a landline most likely costing less than calls from a mobile.
