0845 numbers at weekends - didn't they used to be free?

Just seen that 0845 numbers are not included in the weekend calls package. I'm sure they used to be quite recently.

This means I pay whenever I phone my bank now (forced to use phone because of a temporary tech difficulty with online).

I can't remember being charged before when I called at weekends.

Or is this another VM sneaky price rise?

You can check archive prices going back to 2018 in the PDFs at the bottom of this page

0845 inclusive depends on the exact package at the time

Most banks now use 03 numbers which would be included in package minutes (subject to T&Cs) but still not totally free as the 60 minute limit would apply.

Have you doubled checked there is not a newer replacement 03 number for your bank instead of 0845?

My query was about VM, not my bank
