Slash line rental costs by over 50% with UK's cheapest home phone deal

9th July 2013 Print

With regular price increases pushing the average annual line rental bill above £170 per year, has secured the UK's cheapest line rental deal with Primus, potentially knocking over £100 from this unpopular household expense.
Costing just £5.99 per month with no additional package cost, the Primus Line Rental Saver offers customers competitive call rates on a 12 month contract.
Dominic Baliszewski telecoms expert at commented: "Line rental is no longer an insignificant household expense; costs have soared in recent years. Line rental is often overlooked when it comes to switching but big savings can be made when customers shop around.
"The Primus Line Rental Saver package can shave over 50% from the average line rental bill - this is fantastic value from a niche provider which would suit customers who do not make a high volume of calls, or prefer to have their phone and broadband provider unbundled."
In addition to the £5.99 Line Rental Saver deal, Primus are also launching their Home Phone Saver package which costs just £6.99 per month and includes evening and weekend calls. Both deals are available exclusively through sister site until 31st July.
Top tips on reducing your phone bills:

1. Pay by direct debit: Nearly all providers discourage paying by direct debit and impose charges of anything up to £5 for dealing with cheques. However, The Post Office accepts payment by cheque with no additional charges.

2. Opt for paperless billing: Some providers offer discounts if you receive your statements online instead of via post. You'll also be doing your bit for the environment.

3. Check the small print: If you are tied in to a 12 or 18 month contract, you may be faced with exit fees if you want to switch before it runs out. Check what you may have to pay to switch early and weigh it up against the cost savings to ensure it is worth the move.

4. Pay in advance - Some providers offer significant savings if you can pay for the whole year up front. This won't be an option for everyone but those that do so will save over £40 a year without even needing to switch.
