What is Extras?

Extras is a way of using our regular conference call service that will save you money and give you access to additional dial-in numbers. By buying a bundle of minutes, you can get instant access to a wider range of numbers at a cheaper rate. Here are some of the benefits.

Access to more numbers

With Extras, you can get a mix of number types to suit you and your participant's needs. Depending on the bundle you pick, there are a range of in-bundle geographic numbers that you can use at a cheap rate. Using the Extras service also gives you access to our full range of geographic numbers, as well as all shared cost and Freephone numbers.

This is all great, but what’s the difference between the number types?

Shared cost numbers
These are specific numbers that are charged to each individual participant dialling into the call. Each participant pays only for the number of minutes they dialled in for. 0844 numbers are shared cost numbers in the UK.
Freephone numbers
These are numbers that are free for participants to call from a landline and come at a lower cost to call from mobile. Great for dialling in from a landline, the host pays for the call. 0800 numbers are Freephone numbers in the UK.
Geographic numbers
These are numbers that are charged at a local rate. They are often included in UK mobile phone plans, which makes them free to call. The host pays for the call. 03 numbers are geographic numbers in the UK.

Cheaper minutes

It's simple. With our Talk bundles, you get cheaper minutes for your calls. Particularly for those that make regular conference calls, getting access to cheaper minutes can really make a difference. It's a great way to save money without having to cut the number of calls you make per month.

Our Talk bundles come with a monthly allowance of minutes starting from just 1.7p/min, so managing costs also becomes a lot easier. The good thing about Extras is that it also helps you keep a closer eye on your spending. With standard monthly payments, it makes budgeting easy as there are no surprises when you get the bill at the end of the month.

Extra security

We'll give you a Chairperson PIN that is separate to your participant's PIN for extra security. It gives you more visibility to keep track and manage your calls.

Depending on the bundle you choose, you can keep all of the minutes for yourself or share them between different PIN pairs on your account. This means that you can easily share the savings with your colleagues without the worry of conference calls clashing. It also makes it easy to see how many minutes everyone uses.

More flexibility

Circumstances change all the time, so there's no catch where you only get cheaper minutes because you're tied into a strict long-term contract. The contracts are on a rolling monthly basis and you can stop and start at any time.

We need to be flexible like you are, so we don't charge for any cancellations and you can easily change your bundle by calling our friendly customer support team.
