Do calls made from UK mobiles attract a surcharge?
If you are ringing from a mobile you could be surcharged by your mobile operator. This depends on your mobile operator and which tariff plan you have. We advise you to get in touch with your mobile phone provider to double check if they surcharge on calls to our access numbers.

Why did you change the access number for COUNTRY X?
Prices may vary. Whenever we have a (temporary) price drop, we can offer some countries at even lower priced access numbers. When these price drops end, we'll have to change back the access number also. If you have encountered Budgetcom during one of these actions, please keep in mind that our standard-rates are extremely low as well!

Can I use these access numbers outside the UK?
Unfortunately our access numbers will only work in the United Kingdom. So if you live abroad or if you are on holiday outside the UK I am afraid you cannot make use of our services.

Am I able to use Budgetcom when NTL is my service provider?
Budgetcom access numbers can be used from most landlines including NTL lines. The charges for calls to our access numbers will simply appear on your normal NTL phone bill. NTL charges the same rates as BT for our access numbers.

When do call charges take effect?
When you dial a Budgetcom access number you will be charged from the moment you are connected to our service. However, should your call not be answered, you will get a message from our operator and you will be disconnected. Your call should not take more than two minutes.

What are "network extras" in the message: "calls cost {X}p per minute plus network extras"?
