Many Irish companies offer 1890 support/contact numbers. These so-called ‘low call numbers’, are often excluded from bundled phone plans on both landline and mobile networks. 1890 numbers may cost from 5 cent to 31c per minute depending on the network.
Before you call that number take a look at the website for the company you want to dial, if you don’t see a national number listed, instead look for the company’s international number – international? Yes! Simply remove the international prefix and use the national part of the number, which more often than not is cheaper than the low call number if it is excluded from your bundled price plan.
Example: AIB banking number is 0818 724 724 – their international number is 353 1 771 2424. Simply call 01 771 2424 if your inclusive phone plan does not include calling 0818 numbers.
This website has great information on charges and more for 1890 charges in Ireland.
Update: – since December 1st 2019, your minutes to 1890, 1850, 0818 and 076 numbers should be included in your mobile bundles
