Calling a geographical number which are numbers beginning 01, 02 or 03 will normally be cheaper than calling an 084x/087x number depending on tariff you have.

However, this isn't always true and can depend on time of day, the tariff you're on and whether calling from a mobile or landline.

For example, calling 084x/087x from a mobile can cost around 25ppm+ (often more) depending on network/tariff you're on whereas a call to a geographical number (01, 02 or 03) will be included in any inclusive tariff you may have.

Most of the the time basically when you call an 08x number, calls are transferred automatically to a geographical, or a range of geographical numbers depending on how busy that number is.

An alternative number listed may be the actual number the 08x transfers to or it maybe a telephone number for another department (eg reception) who may transfer the call for you.

Both types of numbers (01,02,03) and 08x are used by the business.

If you provide some basic details of the the landline/tariff you're using and any mobile tariff then I can provide more accurate information for you.

i understand it now, but how can it be legal for companies to lets say charge 50p a minute for a 0870 number or whatever even though its being transferred to a number that is more than likely free nowadays with the addons we have on are mobile/home tariffs
i honestly thought people were hosting numbers to connect to the 0870etc number on a "server" kind of thing, i didnt know companies have 01 02 03 numbers lol!
im on a unlimited call tariff to 01 02 03 and all mobiles in the uk BTW!

thanks!

Free market.  Same could be said why booking holidays during half term when kids are off can cost significantly more money (even double sometimes) than when kids are in school.

Some companies use VoIP (Voice over IP) which means an 08x number may transfer to a "server" as you put it and so they may not have an underlying 01/02/03.  However, this type of service especially where there is no underlying 01/02/03 is rare.
