UK’s cheapest line rental deal

6th January 2010 Print is delighted to announce it has once again secured the cheapest stand-alone line rental deal available in the UK, with no additional package costs.

The Primus Home Phone Saver package, which offers free evening and weekend calls to UK landlines and costs £9.15 per month for line rental, will be available exclusively through offering consumers a potential saving of over £28 a year.

Michael Phillips, product director, commented: "We are continually striving to get the best deal for consumers and we are delighted to have successfully secured the cheapest line rental deal in the UK for the second consecutive year. The monthly line rental charge is increasingly being questioned by UK consumers as prices have steadily risen. With the Christmas spending season just gone and the £6 broadband tax coming into effect in 2010, it is inevitable that consumers will seek to lower their household costs - there has never been a better time to compare your current line rental deal with other providers on the market." offers hints and tips for getting the best line rental deal for you:

Pay by direct debit - Nearly all providers discourage payment by any means other than direct debit and impose punitive charges of anything up to £5 per month for dealing with cheques.  The Post Office accepts payment by various means with no additional charges.

Go for paperless billing - Some providers offer useful savings if you receive your statements online, not by post.  You'll also do your bit for the environment.

Check your small print - If you're tied to a 12 or 18 month contract, you may be faced with exit fees if you want to switch before the contract term ends. Weight up the savings and charges before making your decision as you may find the savings don't merit the switch.
