What is the best landline deal? 

You can save money on your phone bill by finding the tariff you need at the cheapest monthly price. To find the right landline tariff for you, you should consider the monthly cost, call rates, contract length and the type of calls that are included free. 

The cost of your landline package will be based on the line rental charge, cost of calls, connection fees, and the call plan cost - this is how much you pay for inclusive calls, such as calls at evenings and weekends.

You should consider any additional extras that come with some landline plans, such as voicemail, caller display, call diversion or call barring where you can restrict the type of calls made to your landline. Some providers will offer these type of extras within the cost of your package, but others will apply an additional charge to include them. 

You should recognise that the cheapest landline deal is not always the best, because they may not offer as many inclusive calls. Depending on how often you use your landline, paying slightly more for your monthly plan may save you a significant amount.  

By shopping around for landline deals you can benefit from cheap domestic, international and mobile calls.  Understanding the difference between peak and off-peak times can also help you save money on your landline bill. Another way to save money is by combining your landline with your entertainment services, such as your mobile phone or broadband.
